Why You Should Not Always Worry About Duplicate Content

Content is the essence of what online professionals do. Day in and day out, an online professional has to consume content, as well as deliver it. In spite of all the developments and progress made in this ever changing realm, the cliche, content is king, still applies.

Google has an obligation to give a searcher with the best search experience. It’s frustrating when these searchers look for information and find it’s almost similar or same. Google looks at this content, whether served on the same domain or on different ones, as a duplicate and has heavy penalties for the same.

There is no definite penalty for duplicate content, when the intention behind duplicating is to manipulate the algorithms or act maliciously. This is a judgment algorithm you have no control over. Dealing with duplicate content on your website ensures that you are not vulnerable to this judgment.

Blogging Pitfalls: Avoiding Duplicate Content Purgatory

Copy ButtonWhen you hit “publish” on a new post, how many copies of that post exist on your site? How about on the Web?

The truth is that there is no way to know exactly how many copies of your post you create because every theme and every site are different in this area. However, depending on your setup, you can create more than a dozen copies of the work on your site and that can create a serious headache both for yourself and for the search engines.

Duplicate content may not be the extreme danger it once was but it is a lurking problem for bloggers and other webmasters alike. However, it isn’t a simple one to stop, especially considering that the issue isn’t limited to what is going on with your site but can be amplified by the actions of others sites, including those you don’t control.
