Is duplicate content cannibalizing SEO traffic/ranking?

If I have content that overlaps, will Google downrank both, pick one or rank both? Wonder how strongly I need to monitor the content.

    Content duplicate is in no way healthy for SEO. Infact, that one criteria you must meet to get ranked and qualified for google ads is content uniqueness..

    In your case, google considers the first post it crawled and ranks it over the other

    You must stay unique and relevant if you must scale up and succeed on the internet.

    Hope this helps!

    Duplicate content is not at all healthy for SEO because it usually comes under thin content according to google update.

    Hi
    Recently Google stops showing multiple pages for one keyword of the same website. From now Google will show only one result for one keyword for the same website.

    Duplicate Content doesn't impact websites directly but it lowers the user's experience.

    Google's "robots" will track this down and websites that have the same content will penalize both.

    Years ago you can rank really easily but now a days it is a lot harder.

    It has indeed negative effects on your SEO traffic. Google is quite smart and has bots working 24/7 to check on things like this.

    Duplicate content gives negativity for your website. Duplicate content also de-rank website in SERP pages. This usually comes under thin content which gets a negative impact on your webpages/sites.

    Content is king in SEO, you can't ignore it. Duplicate content is harmful for a marketing campaign. I suggest always using unique and concise content. Google only considers those content which provides an answer to the user query. Don't create lengthy content, the most important is the content format.

    Google doesn't like duplicate content, no matter it's yours or copied from another source. However, sometimes I've seen good SEO results with copied content. For about 3 months, and then Google gave a penalty. So I recommend to check your content and make it unique.
