    Duplicate content: Differentiate between website pages, help-guides and blog-posts.


    Hi all,

    I wonder that duplicate content is the strong reason beside our ranking drop. We have multiple pages of same "topic" (not exactly same content; not even 30% similar) spread across different pages like website pages (product info), blog-posts and helpguides. This happens with many websites and I wonder is there any specific way we need to differentiate the content? Does Google find the difference across website pages and blog-pots of same topic? Any good reference about this?

    Thanks

    I think you probably need to look at Canonicalization however you probably want each type of page to show up in search results.

    Are the pages listed as having duplicate content issues?

    Generally, I would have my product page be the main focus point and link to it from the blog posts and help guides. This would depend a little bit on how oyu are set up.
