    Similar content in business listing (backlink) and website will affect ranking?


    Hi all,

But the different for this website to another website is I had build 15 backlinks with similar content with my site. Is this call duplicate content and affect my ranking?

    Hi iws,

    Similar content is not duplicate content...

    You say you built 15 backlinks with similar content to your site... does that mean 15 backlinks from within articles that are also on your site? (A backlink wouldn't normally include a page-full of content)

    Yes, please specify. ClickyB makes a good point but what do you mean by 'content'? Anchor text? Articles, etc?

    even if the 2 pages are exact duplicates if they are linking back to your page it gives you the citation.
