The pirate algorithm of Google
Also, another thing that reduced the satisfaction of the Google search engine with the site was viewing a site with duplicate content and so-called copied content, which is contrary to copyright law. For this purpose, the Google search engine introduced the pirate algorithm.
The law is known as the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, or DMCA. This law was approved and registered in 1988 by the then president of the United States, and then a unit in Google called DMCA started working in 2012 to deal with the printing law.
Copyright law protection
Every content producer has the right to publish their written content under their name and upload it to the site. Still, before introducing and starting to work with the pirate algorithm, the results of websites that sell and primarily provide software. The specialization they paid was different, resulting from the activity of profit-seeking people who provided software at a meager price or for free. Of course, they were in the first results of Google and above the main website of the software provider.
The number of complaints from site owners to Google had increased to such an extent that Google could not check the sites quickly and immediately, but after the activity of the pirates, the ranking results of the sites changed.
An important factor in checking the contents of sites by the pirate algorithm is the content’s publication time. The method of checking Google’s pirate algorithm is that it recognizes the site that published an article earlier as the owner and creator of the content and displays the position of that site higher in its results.
SEO and website optimization have always emphasized exclusive content production. When you present your unique and special product or service and produce content based on it, you will get a good position based on the pirate algorithm, which can increase your site’s Google traffic.
Reporting copied content to Google’s DMCA unit
- If you see content from your website on another site, enter this address, which is the counter of the DMCA service.
- Choose your country after entering your information.
- Enter your report based on the description of text copied from your site.
- Next, enter the URLs of the copied pages.
- Specify which sites are copying your content.
By reviewing the report sent and checking the pages of the wrong site, Google company will remove the URL address of the page that has copied content, reducing the site’s rank.
Google’s pirate algorithm: when did it enter the company?
The number of copies of content by users and site managers without referring to the site and source has increased in recent years as if the copyright law had expired and large businesses were to blame. They knew that Google was not dealing with this problem.
“Emanuel Update” was the initial name of the algorithm. But one of the influential Bollywood archivists, Ari Emanuel, addressed Google and named the pirate. Then Google called this algorithm a pirate.
2012 marks the official launch of the Pirate algorithm, and 2014 marks its implementation of an updated version.
The main task of this algorithm is to identify and deal with sites that publish duplicate content. This algorithm does not focus only on textual content. Instead, it examines image and video content and even products. Based on the previous articles related to the Panda algorithm, the Panda algorithm also focuses on content. But the pirate algorithm carefully examines non-commercial sites such as system software.
How does the pirate algorithm work?
The pirate algorithm does not penalize the site immediately upon seeing duplicate content. Instead, in the beginning, the first site that produced and published the content checked the time of publication and rated the main website, which appears in the first search results. Then it lowers the rank of the offending site. A pirate algorithm’s performance and review are directly related to the following:
- Validity and number of incoming links to the site
- History of the site
- Time to publish content on the site
Panda algorithm vs. pirate algorithm
Content with a unique and somewhat specialized scientific title may be difficult to find for those who have limited knowledge of the subject. So, it is necessary to be a little more technical and continue the article by comparing the performance of two algorithms, Panda and Pirate:
Panda and Pirate algorithms identify duplicate content, so why are the two algorithms designed and implemented?
Websites that engage in unscrupulous copying have several behavior models on the Internet. Including:
- Copying the whole text and content of the site from another source.
- Copycat sites copy content from many sources.
- Copies of websites that have only some parts of their website copy.
- A website that only copied a few sentences.
The difference between the panda and pirate algorithm is apparent here. The pirate algorithm detects the first three cases, and the panda algorithm detects the fourth case, which only copied a few sentences from another source.
Both algorithms’ goal is for the user to receive sound, new and practical content and stay on the site that has brought her benefit and value.
Stay safe from the pirate algorithm with the following methods.
Some time ago, Google announced news under the title of the content is king. But in the new report of Google, a phrase was seen in the announcement: Content GOD.
Be a content creator.
If you are familiar with the algorithms of the Google search engine, you have noticed that the main focus of the algorithms is on the site’s content, and the use of any duplicate content will result in a penalty or at least a drop in the site’s ranking. To fix and prevent this from happening, be the creator of your site’s content and produce new and attractive content. If you don’t have enough ability and creativity, leave this work to the company and the people who make the content.
At least link and mention the source and reference of the content.
It is inevitable that sometimes due to updates and new news that we come across on other sites and sources, we have to use videos, images, or sentences from other sites and sources. The reason for using it and my personal experience was to use and express the words of someone or another website only to emphasize the content’s importance and validity and gain more user confidence in the site’s content. If you use phrases and images from other sources, the best way to avoid Google’s search engine algorithms is to mention a valid and documented source and reference so as not to be added to sites that will soon face fines or drop in ranking.
Introducing and registering new content using the Google console search tool
This method is essential because pages with new content are indexed faster, and the Google bot checks the new page’s content. To do this, do the following:
- Enter the search console site.
- Click on the URL Inspection option and enter the page URL with the new content.
- Click on the Request Indexing option to confirm the indexing of the content that is not indexed.
