Got information about the web archive. So I understand these are articles from remote websites. Articles are sold for pennies. Uniqueness is guaranteed by 90 - 100%.

Took a couple out of curiosity. The uniqueness really matches. One is 100%, the other is 94%.

What is your opinion on whether these articles are worth using? You can also take in batches. How will the search engines react to that case? It is clear that info must be up-to-date. In topics where there is no statute of limitations.

Yesterday I only learned about web archive, I looked in the archive on the service there for some topics of thousands of articles.


I would not recommend posting that articles, since they have already been published and are not, in fact, unique. Somewhere later yes the original source will emerge. No wonder they sell them for pennies.

Generally that articles from the web archive are not accepted by search engines. Well, as for me, you can try to dilute the website occasionally, provided that the article is up-to-date and, as an option, make changes and additions to the articles ... Well, these are just my guesses, I myself have never published from web archive and I am of the opinion that this is superfluous waste of money and time.


Unscrupulous sellers can sell the same article several times, the uniqueness will inevitably fall to 0%. Information on the web quickly becomes outdated. The data presented in the articles may be irrelevant.
Texts written for certain search engine algorithms can be spammed with keys.
It is believed that information is stored in the cache memory of search engines for no more than 2 years, but content borrowed from archives written 4-9 or more years ago quickly drops out of the index. Or not indexed at all.

The Yahoo team warns that texts previously listed in the index, when re-posted on other sites, will not be considered unique, even if they have not been in the cache for a long time.
Google also finds matches in the archives, even if the content is taken from a very "ancient" resource.
Posting articles from the web archive is justified only when you need to update the content urgently, and there is absolutely not enough time to write articles.
