Duplicate Content

When we hear of a word duplicate, definitely thats two things sharing one identity. Duplicate content is having a content similar to another.

Why do we need to talk about duplicate content?

A lot of people still doing this practice beacuse they believe somehow this help their rankings easily drives traffic even though theyn will face consequences.

Supplimental index

In the early years of Google, duplicates truly is not allowing by search engine. However its not causing them to be pnealized right away. They were just being placed as a second class. That means these pages are not totally omitted by search engines. After few years, google bring back these second class pages to the main index list of search engine. The consequences is that, people can see these pages with warning message at the top of each page.

Crawl Budget

Google uses spiders to crawl websites to be shown on search engine. There is a budget allocation for all the pages being crawled and if google hits the maximum count of pages in a day, the page which you want to be indexed cannot be crawled anymore.

Indexation Cap

It is normal that not all pages is indexed and google only prioritize those pages that are important in your website or those that are properly optimized. In some cases some duplicated content or with similar content pages are index because google sees the similarities of them and not the quality. Don’t worry about that, as long as you know your quality and you follow rules in SEO.

Penalty debate

Then, if we noticed that our website is no longer appears on search engine page results, and we know that we are having duplicate content, that’s the time you need to think about. Are you being penalized by Google?
