Search engines enjoy websites that are frequently updated with high quality and original content. However search engines do not like duplicate content and you may end up getting penalised for it.
Copyright is one of the main issues, as you will get penalised by search engines and you might chip off the original author and land up in court. Most popular search engines have advanced duplicating filters that can easily detect whether the content on your site is original or not.
Well-written, original content is a great asset when it comes to SERPs (search engine results page) and raises the Google PR (page rank) of your website. While there are many advantages to writing your own content, we still believe that the small investment involved with contracting a content writer may be worth your while in time saved.
