    Well.. It's still not a very good idea to directly copy/paste it.. You can also use the cannonical tag!

    Maybe changing a couple of words would suffice?

    Why are you doing that? It consumes resources and takes up unnecessary space and bandwidth, especially if both domains host a WordPress site.

    What happens with a contactform? Let's say you have a unique page about your product. You sell 10 products, 10 different pages, all unique pages

    but,

    on every page you have the same text in the contactform? is that harmful?

    For example:

    "<h1> Contact </h1>
    For information or prizes, please contact us in the form below"

      Not penalized, but some of them may fall from the search results. If you get the sites to properly target the right countries that may or may not help. Would try to prevent this myself.

      No. That's not what duplicate content means. You've probably seen high-profile blogs that have the same blurb on every page, and they do just fine.

      Duplicate in this context means entire pages or large chunks of text that exist on the same site.

        Thank you for making that clear. So you can add the same contactform on every page without it being duplicate content?

    According to search engines, if two different has same content, then it will consider as duplicate content and there is chance to penalize your website. So write unique content for your website.

    If you have copied just 3 to 4 posts, then Google will not notice your duplicate content. If you frequently post same content on all sites, then there is a possibility of all your websites coming under Google radar.

      I did it for 7 subdomains, and i will probably create 5 reviews across the site for different cb products, do you think google would notice it in that situation ?
      Would changing the intro paragraph for each duplicate article be enough? They are approx 500 words and intro is 30 words

    You should consider either rewriting those posts or writing new ones. Or, if you don't want to do either, you can interlink them, show an excerpt of the original post and just link to it, so people can read the whole article.

      So maybe write the same first paragraph on each page, and then write "See more" hyperlink ?

    It is black hat technique and you have to pay for it, because according to Google policy it is copied content and you can't post same content on different blogs or websites. So you should remove this content from one website.

      Black hat? Just wow. Where do you pull this stuff?

      Posting the same piece to couple of pages has nothing to do with headwear colors. It may or may not be duplicate content, but even that's not usually exactly penalized. Yes, it's possible that Google filters your piece to the supplemental index. If they do that to your piece of content then do something about it.

      Have you ever heard of syndication? You know, sites borrow each other's content openly, and do not try to hide this fact from Google.

    That's not a good idea, you will get penalized for it. Why don't you write 300 word articles for each of your pages? It's safe and you can write it in 10 minutes.

    I think it will harm your website, so better to use spinner tool instead of directly copy and pasting same content.

    This is not at all good practice to use the same content multiple sites. You can use Canonical tag to avoid any kind of Google penalty. But I will prefer to avoid adding the same content in every site. Content spinning is also not good activity especially if you are publishing content on any website.

      Is there any easy way to setup Canonical tag on wordpress posts? maybe a plugin?

    That's very bad idea using duplicate content on website. Try to use unique content otherwise you're website being penalized by Google.

    This is not a good idea, it count as duplicate content and Google hate duplicay. If you want to post same content then you can make little changes to your content and repost it. It is like unique content for Google.
