The internet is free for all and anything is possible on the internet. In fact, someone you don’t know may be living your life on the internet. You do not even need to be a public figure for this to happen. In terms of content, there are also tons of fake content on the internet. Thus, whether we are talking about content or persons, one thing is certain, the internet has a lot of duplicates. The question is how large the proportion is. As the largest and most popular search engine, Google has given its answer.
Google Search Central Live event held in Singapore. Google Webmaster trend analyst, Gary Illyes said that 60% of the content on the Internet are duplicates. According to Google, “Duplicate content generally refers to substantive blocks of content, within or across domains, that either exactly matches or are clearly similar to other content”. Therefore, for the sake of search engine optimization (SEO), a website should have to avoid using such content. Instead, they can provide their own unique content.

Google released an update for the “app archive” feature through the Play Store
Google has since confirmed that it is working on a tool that will allow Android users to “archive” some apps. This will help users to create some space in the device. According to Google, up to 60% of a device’s memory can be available by simply using an app archive. When users archive an app, all their data on the app remains there. This feature will not also delete the app for the mobile phone. However, it will expunge some parts of the app in order to reduce the resources it consumes.
The Play Store recently received Google’s new v33.4 update. This update brings the “app archive” feature. When you archive an app, the app icon will not leave the desktop. However, there will be an indication on the icon that it is archived. This indication is a cloud download logo.
