Does Google Filter Out Religious Content

religious booksThere is an interesting thread at DigitalPoint Forums which I've never seen before. It is an SEO question on how Google handles duplicate content due to religious content.

This webmaster runs a religion blog on Buddhism and he often quotes a lot of religious texts that are all over the internet. He is worried that since the passages he quotes is all over the internet, Google may filter out his own content because it is too duplicative to other content on the internet.

The thing is, quoting passages and adding your own commentary to that passage is unique. That is what makes religious texts so valuable.

I do the same thing hear. I quote a ton and then add a little more value to what I quote, so people have the context, hopefully understand the bigger picture and get a more solid answer on.

So if you have a religious blog, don't just copy and paste passages and that is it. Make sure you add value by adding your own experiences to the text, adding your commentary or doing something revolutionary with that content.

Trust me, with old religion there are plenty of ways to add value.
