    Where are you getting the content for your web presence

    You may be one of those people in the world that copy and paste other people’s content onto your own website or blog.  I have to admit, there are a lot of “deep” thinkers in the world, some have some AWESOME ideas.Santa Clarita business

    However, while you may think that no one will catch you, even with that, it is not the best idea to do so.  If need be, break it down from an ethical point of view.  That someone else’s work that you stole.  You cannot consider it borrowed.  Working hard generated that content.  They should be owed an amount of respect because of their insight and time.

    Besides, google is not dumb, they are smart.  Have you heard of the algorithm changes to their Search Engine?  They started recently with Panda.  Panda went out to the websites of the world and checked for dead websites that were URL friendly only.  Meaning if you wanted to have the domain name, Santa Clarita Open Houses, and the site existed but there was no valuable content, they market it down.

    More recently there was the Penguin Update.  Both Panda and Penguin are black and white animals?  Meaning???  Who knows – that’s Google for you…  Penguin focused on Link Farms amongst other things.  But if you were paying a link farm to produce back links to your website in a “black hat or grey hat” endeavor, you may have watched as you website fell in the SERP’s. (search engine results page)

    With those two algorithm changes – plus over 200 other points that are constantly viewed by Google  at the speed of light, we can deduce that Google is not a DUMB search engine.

    Therefore, when you are wanting to get content to your website, come up with from your own stories and or experiences as they relate to your business.  Read the news and comment.  But never copy.  You may end up causing Google to put you in the penalty box.  Or worse, ban you for a much longer period of time.

    Paris and Connor MacIvor

    Connor and Paris MacIvor are in the Top 1% of Realtors Nationwide, starting their real estate business in 1998 with RE/MAX Gateway - Santa Clarita Valley and Valencia CA. Their becoming licensed real estate consultants and representatives came from the horrible experience they had when they bought their first home. There were many things that the agent they had hired did not explain and disclose, which per law he should have. Getting that agent on the phone after they closed escrow and after he had gotten paid was impossible. Paris and Connor called the broker, the board of realtors, the office manager and all they received was the promise of a phone call back. The remedy did come, but not as fast and in the way they wanted. That act - that bad agent was the reason why Paris and Connor became Realtors. That was all they needed to vow to never let the same fate befall anyone else, that befell them. Today Connor and Paris are focused on client service. Protection and top-shelf service with regard to their real estate clientele. They primarily work within the Santa Clarita Valley and Valencia CA. However, for a referral, where 80+ of their business is referrals they have License and Will Travel to other parts of Ventura County, Los Angeles County, and Orange County to handle real estate transactions for those who trust their real estate operation.

      Good Point! But I have an MBA and through my upper grad studies I was required to research and site my sources (MLA), so that is not “stealing” it is siting the source of your research. I can understand your point of view, but my content on my blog is for the purpose of sharing information that I have found useful. Thank you for the extra reminder to give credit to my content sources.

        You are more than welcome RoxAnne… I guess my point was not to those that were doing research and giving credit, it was to those that plagiarize other people’s work. Some do it on purpose. Those that are newer to the internet and business or self promotion may do it mistakenly. Congrats on achieving an MBA. Thanks again for reading my blog, much appreciated…
