Articles Have the Same Title but are on Different Sites on Triond

I'm so confused, this user has over a thousand "articles" but a lot of them have the same title, even though the contents are different, they're all very short articles too. I don't get how Triond didn't catch it, I think it's because the articles themselves were different, but they were about the subject of the title, but It's just confusing to see the same title for an article to pop up over and over again.

Hi Reviewmemedia, you are probably very new to seo thing. The title of an article usually contains a keyword that the writer wants to secure top ranking in search engine result page. Sometimes, when the title uses a long tailed keyword phrase, the author is working hard to secure that particular spot. Some examples of long tailed keyword phrase are: 1. How to make money online 2. How to make easy money online 3. How to earn easy cash You can see that the titles essentially mean the same thing, but the search audience is different. If you are used to the term, make money online, you rarely use the term, earn money online. That particular writer is probably hoping that one of his articles can reach the top page. Sometimes they are using this trick to get linking. That means, I write one article about how to make money online with just one single key point, I would point you to another article about the same theme, with another key point. In this case, instead of one long article attracting one page view, I split into five articles, so that the page views potentially increase a few times.

That could be it, but it's so very confusing and is it something that should be allowed?

Hi Reviewmemedia, the user cannot be found. I think Triond has banned that person. In answer to your question, the answer is yes, you can have many articles with the same title. Title is not copyrighted, so a hundred writers can use the same title to write different things. To answer a second question, Triond does not encourage articles that are too short, except in Authspot as Poetry. In general, articles should have at least 250 words. That is a relatively new requirement, and not really implemented. If you see a very short article of just one or two sentences, you can flag as Insufficient Quality, and the articles will be deleted. If the same writer has too many of such articles, he will be banned. I think that is what happens to that sufergirl.

I'm happy they were banned, I understand poems are supposed to be short, but what she did was ridiculous and took advantage of the system.
