    How bad is the duplicate content within a site ?


    Hello

    I need to ask that what %age of duplicate or common content within a website is acceptable ?

    Some sites offer cell phone downloads and they have similar content on most of the pages. For example there are 2 pages. One is having Motorola downloads, second is having Nokia downloads and the difference between both pages contents is just that Motorola replaces Nokia.


    Any comments ?

    My suggestion in this case would be to have a small description of the Nokia on the Nokia page and the motorola on its page. I assume basically what you mean by duplicate content is that the titles are similiar and it is near content-less. Am I correct?
