    Post Another Duplicate content question?

    if the same question / topic is posted in the two forums, will this be a duplicate content?
    and if I have a blog and squidoo lens, or a blog on my website and blog option on a "authority site" or a network with good audience, does posting the same blog there is regarded as harmful duplicate?

    Thank you

    Hi Yalla,

    Duplication needs to be reasonably substantial in order to cause ranking problems... even then the "problems" will most likely be nothing more than all but one of the "duplicate pages" being ignored in the serps.
    Even if all duplicate pages are ignored that's about the worst that's gonna happen...
    I suppose it's possible that - in extreme circumstances (eg: if 95% of your site is made up of pages which are 95% duplicated) - you might find your entire site is "downgraded" due to "trust issues", but it's pretty unlikely imho... more likely the duplicates will simply be ignored/delisted.

    Posting the same question in two forums is most unlikely to be problematic (unless both posts get identical answers and follo-up comments).
