What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

I placed a question on Stack Overflow, and I was searching the same topic on Google, and I discovered same duplicate question is also posted on apacheserver.net, and I did not receive any notification or acknowledgment that this is going to happen. Why it is like that?

Please let someone know me the reasons.

Google does not particularly care for these "content farms" and has released a chrome browser plugin to help oust them from the first page of search results. See my answer to the question Is it legal to copy Stack Overflow questions and answers? for further info.
