Unique content is best, but supplier text is common amongst ecommerce sites. I don't see Google penalising sites for it. Even if you have this kind of product description you can still compete by exploiting the many other ranking factors.

Well, if Google is penalizing you for what it thinks is scraped/duplicated content, you could always tweak the text a bit to make it unique to your site. For a few products, that might not be too onerous, but for lots of products, especially if you are auto-feeding them into your store along with supplier text, that could be a lot of work. Perhaps those blog post "spinner" rewriters might be employed here (if they produce good enough text)? Insert a short boilerplate sentence between the second and third sentences? It would depend upon the style they were originally written in. You want to automate the process as much as you can.

Scraped content

Some webmasters use content taken (“scraped”) from other, more reputable sites on the assumption that increasing the volume of pages on their site is a good long-term strategy regardless of the relevance or uniqueness of that content. Purely scraped content, even from high-quality sources, may not provide any added value to your users without additional useful services or content provided by your site; it may also constitute copyright infringement in some cases. It's worthwhile to take the time to create original content that sets your site apart. This will keep your visitors coming back and will provide more useful results for users searching on Google.

Some examples of scraping include:

  • Sites that copy and republish content from other sites without adding any original content or value
  • Sites that copy content from other sites, modify it slightly (for example, by substituting synonyms or using automated techniques), and republish it
  • Sites that reproduce content feeds from other sites without providing some type of unique organization or benefit to the user
  • Sites dedicated to embedding content such as video, images, or other media from other sites without substantial added value to the user

Hi @radhavallabh, yes. Look in the Contribs to od there is already something or if you coded something yourself then do not forget the corresponding functions in the general.php
