Google is now very strict with the quality of the websites and its content. If they find a site is copying content continously, posting meaningless content, huge keyword stuffing, posting repeated content, duplication of posts in the same website and copyright content then immediately the site owner will get the following message. You can find the message in your webmaster tools:
Dear Site Owner or Webmaster of http://abcd.com,
We’ve detected that some of your site’s pages may be using techniques that are outside Google’s Webmaster Guidelines.
Specifically, we’ve detected low-quality pages on your site which do not provide substantially unique content or added value. Examples could include thin affiliate pages, doorway pages, automatically generated content or copied content. For more information about unique and compelling content, visit http://www.google.com/support/webmasters/bin/answer.py?answer=66361.
We encourage you to make changes to your site so that it meets our quality guidelines. Once you’ve made these changes, please submit your site for reconsideration in Google’s search results.
If you have any questions about how to resolve this issue, please see our Webmaster Help Forum for support.
