6.   Write Your Own Copy For Products and Services

A lot of times brands will sell a widget. Instead of creating unique content they copy and paste from the standard widget description. The problem with this is it being duplicate content. Search engines like Google hate that. If they find out you are using duplicate content you will get dinged and drop in search results.
