    Duplicate Content question


    I have a news forum for a company of mine that I would like to put the news feed with the last 5 threads posted on the main site. I've done this before and know that duplicate content across the same domain is fine, but this isn't on the same domain. It's two different domains, and the company site has a higher PR than the forums. So will the forums just get penalized for duplicate content?

    Also, are the SE's any better at indexing javascript content these days?

    No, this won't be a problem. It will be such a small percentage of the entire page's content that, in effect, its about the same as having a common header.

    Nope, not really.

    Will be no problem.

    Duplicate content has to be quite extensive to get a penalty.
    Its more for those affiliate sites that give you all the same page but with just your name on it different from all the rest.
