What’s the Truth About Duplicate Content?

Now, there is no instant duplicate content penalty, but if someone steals your content you can report it to Google and ask for it to be removed from their search results.The increasing use of Google authorship will also become a key factor in designating ownership of content, so start using it.

If you have duplicate pages on your own website, then use rel=”canonical” to ensure Google shows the one you want in search results.Google’s Matt Cutts said in July 2013 that duplicate content won’t hurt you unless it is a blatant attempt to manipulate the search engine, so as long as you’ve set a canonical page you shouldn’t need to do much else.
