I currently run a job board website, with a few blog articles that rank well.

I want to launch another job board in a similar market, and I have articles that are relevant to both sites.

I would like to publish the same articles on both sites, without having to re-write it.

The problem is, how do I deal with getting penalized for duplicate content? Is there a way to post the identical content on my second site without getting penalized?

    It seems that you want to spam your content in mulltiple sites just to rank? and its a no no!
    I would suggest that you must focus on one website only to avoid duplication.

    You are only creating more problems with multiple websites with same content.

      No, not at all.... I want the same content on multiple sites because it is relevant to both audiences, but I don't want to affect the rankings of the first site....

    From my experience duplicate content leads to stiff penalties. Not useful for SEO ranking.
    {{ DiscussionBoard.errors[11537822].message }}
  • There is no way to prevent penalty risk if you are going to do that as well as you will also face problems to rank your website.

    Don't post exact the same. My suggestion is:

    Post the articles on your main site. On the other site; post parts of the same article (with a link back) and put your (other) opinion under it. That way it is natural and you can work faster.

    My brother don't even both doing it if one website doesn't get you what you want.

    Then guess what a hundred websites won't just think about making the ones you have useful first.

    Because i believe you've made all of them useless already by spamming each one of them.

    Just take your time and delete all remaining one sorry to disappoint you.

    It is not duplicate content if it is not in the same website.

    What you want to do is syndicate your content.

    Folks if the news media was penalized for publishing the same content over and over from a single source there would be no news being showed on Google except the originator.

    Duplicate content is only penalized for the same website, look it up get it right and don't shoot yourself in the feet because you got it wrong.

    What I would say about syndicating your content add some additional value if it is possible to the work you want to be seen.

    I do not use the same content on more than one website. I advise you to avoid using the same content over more than one source.

    If you want to use the same content for the audience of your second website, you can write an abbreviation of the article and publish it on your second website with a link to your first website with a caption read more.

      There is no duplicate content penalty. However, if going for the same/similar keywords, Google will only rank the page on one site.

    Soon enough Google will penalize your for publishing duplicate content even if your sites are registered on different domains.

    Publishing duplicate content on multiple sites is not going to improve your rankings.You would be better off with one site and repurposing the content which will improve your rankings.Do not try and game the system .

    You should avoid this. Duplicate content is a serious thing Google deals with. You should create more content.
    {{ DiscussionBoard.errors[11538749].message }}
  • Yes, you post this content on different site with a little bit change but you have to give the reference link. But this is black hat. If this providing you with the benefit at a time same if google algorithm considers this will leave a bad impact. So try to avoid this other's it's your choice.

    Do not post the same article in 2 blogs. It is better to rewrite one article for greater uniqueness.

    There are other ways to post content onto a site I agree re-writing would take a lot of effort.

    Other ways I would suggest are:

    1) recording it as a Podcast/Voice clip? You could easily read out the blog in one setting and add some humour just like how you would talk to a friend explaining whatever it is in the post.
    This is a good idea if the market audience are those in 9-5 jobs and are seeking new employment as a lot of us listen to podcasts for inspiration/motivation whilst working.

    2) Paying someone on People Per Hour its about $10/£10 for an INFOGRAPHIC. They can create it from your blog post and show it in that way

    3) Paying someone on People Per Hour to rewrite your content. As they don't have to write from scratch it wouldn't cost a lot perhaps $5/£5 as I have paid someone 10 for a full-blown 1000 word article before.

    4) Condense your Blog articles that are performing well into about 5-10 bullet points? And rename it as.... 5 Tips To... 5 Methods to... 5 Reasons Why... etc and then don't expand and put a link at the end of the article to your main/full one.

    I agree, you should not use one material for all blogs. Content must be unique. Then your blogs will be more interesting. No one is interested in reading the same material simply on different blogs.

    NOT. In no case should you do this. Each blog should have different unique content.

    There's no point in duplicating your content. It sounds redundant. Your content has to be unique and doesn't sound ubiquitous.

    Google does not like duplicate content. I suggest using a tool like Wordai, which can rewrite your articles so that your sites will not be penalized for duplicate content.

    This is a dangerous move and google will surely penalise you for that. Understand that google does know that the multiple sites belong to the same person. So, you better rewrite them.

    There is not any way to protect your website from getting Penalized.

    After Google Panda update, duplicate websites get penalty and drop down in overall traffic due to low quality and duplicate content.

    Duplicate Content Penalty

    Let's put this to bed once and for all, folks: There's no such thing as a "duplicate content penalty." At least, not in the way most people mean when they say that.

    Duplicate Content generally refers to substantive blocks of content within or across domains that either completely match other content or are appreciably similar. Mostly, this is not deceptive in origin.

    Google Webmaster Central Blog
    Official news on crawling and indexing sites for the Google index
    Demystifying the "duplicate content penalty"
    Friday, September 12, 2008

    The main take-aways are:
    1. Google does not penealize a site with content published on a different site.
    2. Google may decide not to index the site and/or page with content published on a different site.
    3. Google gives credit to the first site with original and unique content. However, Google may decide to index a page "higher" with content from the original source. News for example.

    Yes.

    When content in full or part is published across different domains the process is classified as cross-domaining.

    When content in full or part is published across a single domain (main and subdomain) the process is classified as cross-posted content.

    How to avoid?

    Cross-Domain Usage of Rel=Canonical
    You can have one "canonical URL" (or "preferred" version of a web page) replicated on more than one other domain allowing you to, for example, distribute certain content across several sites.

      That does not mean you received a Duplicate Content Penalty because Google does not give Duplicate Content Penalties.

    The fact is we all may be creating duplicate content. Here is a quote from Moz:

    "If your site has separate versions at "www.site.com" and "site.com" (with and without the "www" prefix), and the same content lives at both versions, you've effectively created duplicates of each of those pages. The same applies to sites that maintain versions at both http:// and https://. If both versions of a page are live and visible to search engines, you may run into a duplicate content issue."

    Food for thought.

  • Google does not punish you for duplicate content, but it will list only one of the two duplicate pages at the search result. If you want to prefer a certain domain for SEO ranking, you set the canonical link on all other copies of the page.

      Interesting, but I doubt if it is true. If it were, then it would be possible for people to still content from other websites and hope that Google will rank their sites and not the one from where content is copied.

    You can't plagiarize with the same content. It does not bring the result on both sites.
    So focus on creating unique content for each website.

    Long story short owners of websites (practicing webmasters) have know this fundamental Google policy since 2008.
    Reference:Webmaster Central Blog


    The process is called 'cross-domaining or cross-posted content' and a fairly new Google Policy is to communicate to the Goggle Bots that the content is similar or duplicative content throug the use of the canonical tag aka canonical link.
    A canonical tag (aka "rel canonical link") is a way of telling search engines that a specific URL represents the master copy of a page. Using the canonical tag prevents problems caused by identical or "duplicate" content appearing on multiple URLs.
    Learn more at Google Search Console Help


    In the same context and published on the shared sources you will find that Google explicitly states their own metrics will decide which site's pages will be indexed and which are not indexed!
