    Duplicate Content Issues....


    Ok,

    If you submit an article all around the internet to different sites like Article City, iSnare, etc. and eventually that article is publish on say 80 different sites, as well as your own site, is this considered duplicate content?

    Also, if you have a PHP include on every page on your site with a summary of your latest few articles, will this be considered duplicate content?

    Yes and maybe.

    Most sites require original content.

    So where do you draw the line then?

    What about links and copyright info at the bottom of each page?

    Or what about newspapers all over the world pulling Associated Press and Reuters articles..

    Duplicate content is measured as a percentage.

    Major news distributors tend to get a high trust factor from G that lets them get away with a lot more than the rest of us can (including duplicate content).

    Don't confuse writing an article with a news feed. News feeds are usually RSS any more and temporary. Posted articles are usually edited from publication to publication to reflect that paper's personal style and guidelines which also helps them avoid the dup content filter.
