I realise that some SMW forum members may participate in other online forums and I realise that you may want to chat about the same topics on multiple platforms but please do not join this forum and try to transfer your posts to this forum by copying and pasting your posts from another forum into this forum as this has a serious adverse effect on this sites standing in the search engines such as Google. Google will penalise this site with a duplicate content penalty.
Just to be clear, if you were a member of another forum or website which has died or you no longer want to participate in please DO NOT copy your posts from that forum into this forum as it will harm the SMW Forums standing in the search engines.
Some of you may have noticed that a number of posts from forum member "lincoln imp" were removed from the tasting notes forum. The reason for this is lincoln imp had duplicated his posts from or to another site, unfortunately this would trigger a duplicate content penalty in google. lincoln imp was unaware that copying posts across would have an adverse effect on the site, as he was the first to do this on any scale we had not highlighted any rules to prevent this.
lincoln imp's posts were not removed because he did something wrong but because the likes of google is very sensitive when it comes to dozens of pages being duplicated across different websites and will penalise this site or the other site with a duplicate content penalty. Thanks to lincoln imp for his understanding.
