Copied content

Copied content is content that has been copy-pasted from another source. Sometimes they are just chunks of content and other times whole pages have been chopped up and then pasted together creating something seemingly new. Some words can be replaced with synonyms, or one word can be replaced with another throughout the text using the “find and replace” function. This is a riskier version of duplicate content as it can have the purpose of misleading the search engines and can be a cause of a red flag.
