I have a new website which has information and articles on a certain type of business niche in America. It also acts as a sort of directory where I feature all the best businesses in this niche for particular areas of USA.
Wondering if you guys could offer some advice on what would be the best way to create these directory pages. What I really want to do is to provide content for about 5 businesses on each area page... ie, each page will be "Name of Business niche and Area". On each page will be featured 5 or so different businesses located in that area. I understand having unique content would be best, but that will take a ton of time and money, so I was hoping to just copy and paste a small amount of content from each business and provide a link back to their site. I believe that is called syndication?
Is doing it this way cause for concern with Google, or is there a better way to do this?
