There still seems to be a lot of misunderstanding about Google’s “duplicate content penalty”; so much so that I felt the need to help clear the confusion.
For Internet Marketers there are a lot of good reasons to have duplicate, or mostly duplicate, content.
There are articles to publish at the social media and content sharing sites in support of a specific marketing campaign.
There are sales and squeeze pages that are targeted to different audiences.
There are even content in different languages.
But there is this fear of Google penalizing you for duplicate content, maybe even going so far as removing your Web pages from their search results.
Simply, that is untrue.
Why do I say that?
