Wordpress and duplicate content

by 9 comments
I have started using wordpress and you can put the same posts under different

Can anyone tell me if those duplicte posts are going to be seen as duplicate content?
I would rather do this right the first time. (Well, I have a couple wordpress blogs now,
but you know what I mean).

    Did you mean? The same article posted again and again in one wordpress blog under several categories?

    Its 100% duplicate..and will cause you some problem.. I might be wrong..

    Google's aim is to get rid of the duplicate pages not including the original. So if the same content appears multiple times then you should still get one of them indexed and ranking just don't expect the others to.

    Don't overdo it though or it is asking for a G'Slap.

    thanks Tom, I see that it is worse than I thought. Wish I had been on my toes. I have a blog about products, and because it applies to more than one catagory, I put some of that in multiple catagories. Rats. I will search that further.

    I was on page 1 of my niche but am now on page 3 with the blog. Does the wordpress blogs do the same thing static sites do when new - come up to the top, and then drop back down to the inner pages? Or could the duplicate content problem cause Google to put me lower?

    Vince LOL...

      In this particular case, yes, the same article on two different pages of the
      same site, whether it's Wordpress or your own site WILL be viewed by
      Google as duplicate content.

      It is the only TRUE case of duplicate content online.

    So how are some of you getting around the duplicate content thing with wordpress? I see a page of instructions to take care of it, do most people here do this?

    I am technicallly challenged and only get it right half the time after a few tries. Between the frequent constant updates, and now this, I am a little disgruntled.

    Hello. I want to be successful internet marketer. I have the zeal and passion to achieve this aim. But what restricting me to do this is money. As heading of my post says you would know that am from India. If you compare price of dollar with India Rupee its somewhere around $1=Rs. 66 which is increasing day by day. My budget would be $100/month which is equal to Rs. 6600. This is maximum I can spend. I dont have high paying job and also I have to pay rent, bills, etc. I need to pay for domain, hosting, bing ads, fb ads, landing page and so on. I know there are free methods too but as you say free methods take time to show result.

    Have a very special client. I like to call him the Sheikh. He does not mind. In return, he says that I am a Petrol Writer. This client is generous when it comes to pricing and payments. I have never been greedy. Just like Tom Cruise used to say in the Oblivion: We are an effective team! This gentleman is born and raised in Kuwait. He earned his degree in some prestigious London business school. Yet, when it comes to the business culture, he obviously follows the region of his origin. We do not discuss the price. We do not negotiate. Never. He orders the work. I deliver. Then, he asks how much needs to be paid. I get my money. That is it. Smooth and simple. For what is worth, so far, we have worked only on relatively small projects. Until recently. This was a client only to wish for. Guess, it is not only in my nature, but I was not quite satisfied. I wished we could do some more work. And, you know what happens when you wish for something. It happens to you, but not exactly the way you wanted to get it. So, one fine day, the Sheikh approached me with an unusual proposal. Like I passed all the test, and the time has come for the real thing. What he had on his mind was a book about his personal and professional journey, somewhere around 200 to 300 pages. A brand new website. We are talking about a few dozen pages at least. Then, there was a package of 30 blogs, give it or take. He also needed some scripts for promotion videos, but he was not quite sure how many of them.
