Duplicate Content

Home / Knowledge Base-Term / Duplicate Content

Is when there are pages with the same content but with different links referencing them. This content is usually copied, hence the duplication keyword. Since this content can be found in multiple areas around the internet, the search engine must first determine which content is the original and will only display that content to the user. Duplicate content is frowned upon by most search engines and will usually incur a penalty.
