    What’s Google opinion 😉 regarding duplicate content, who’s getting the heat – your aggregate site or the original content owner?

      Hey Dan, you can use the canonical link option in the plugin to give credit to the original source. We usually also recommend showing only links or excerpts from the original piece, not copying it all.

      Although no one knows all the details of how Google’s algorithm works, as long as you’re crediting the original source, providing value, and not blatantly scraping full posts, there won’t be any penalties. Adding your own content to the mix on the site is also recommended.

      This video from Yoast, although a little old now, should also help: https://kb.wprssaggregator.com/article/283-duplicate-content-and-search-engines

      So the aggregated/curated content itself won’t bring direct traffic to your site through Google, but as Jean said above, the traffic from partnerships and referrals will get you there.

    I remember asking last week how does you plugin deal with Google seeing as duplicate the same info published in 2 or more places – and penalizing their SERP rankings…
