So you arrive at a wesbsite and start along your merry way, browsing at will. Suddenly, you are confronted by a curious ‘error' message, denoted by a big red exclamation mark. OK, so I have made a mistake by not including a valid username. But why is the error message in the bottom left of the page when the field for my username is in the top right?

If you have been online for a few months, you must have heard about these two issues: "Content is King" and "Search engines don't like duplicate contents". One of the easiest way to provide contents for your site visitors is by using private label articles. Unfortunately, if you only use this strategy you will have problems to face with the second issue.
