Duplicate content can really hit hard. My question: How can I prevent duplicate content on a lyrics website?
You can use search engine tool or some free tool to identify your website content is accurate or duplicate. Like you can check this website: http://www.seoreviewtools.com/duplicate-content-checker/. A duplicate content based website will never get any rank in this world.
So we have to avoid the duplicate content. By plagiarism checker tool you can understand your website content is duplicate or not.
I’m not sure if I had read that in this site or in another forum that lyrics of a song in the content cannot be considered plagiarism because you cannot change it. Just like the poem when it is published it should be verbatim. How can you include the happy birthday song in your blog? You cannot change the lyrics. My take on the lyrics is you should specify that it is the lyrics of an existing song so that you cannot be charged of plagiarism.
