I always tell delegates on my courses that they should not believe everything they see on the net, and I've found an example of exactly why you shouldn't. I found an interesting article called How to Protect Your Search Engine Placement by Keeping Up to date on Industry Changes - Self SEO provided by a website called Self SEO.
I was interested at a statement made that said that 5 million pages are added to the net every day. I decided to try and find out a bit more about it, and came across an article in a newsletter published in January 2004. As I read on, I realised that both articles were exactly the same, with the exception that the new one had changed all the dates to make it appear as though it was a brand new article. It also looks as though the 'new' article is ah.. 'written' by someone else as well. So... just because it's on the net (and with a recent date!) doesn't mean that it's accurate information. (Before you ask, I've emailed the original author and suggested they may want to take a look.
