It doesn’t matter whether you are a writer, a blogger or a freelancer, there are times where you have encountered duplicate content. Bloggers and writers will be able to relate this a lot more than freelancers.
The search engine giant also hates duplicate content and encourages webmasters to avoid posting duplicate articles online or on any other website of yours. Those who aren’t original face the wrath of Google in the form of penalization and worse, manual action leading to complete wipe out of your site from the search results
