    Hi Folks,
    i have just installed a WordPress theme in www.mysite.com/blog and I have created a post in put it live, the content I got for the post was cut and pasted from a pdf that resides on the root,
    Q1, could this be considered duplicate content?
    Q2, I have a sister site that I would also like to use this content (from the pdf) is copying content from one site to another (word for word) ok or frowned upon by google et al?

    thanks
    T
     
  2. To be frank if it sounds the same, looks the same, well then Google counts it as double. Even though they have bots that scan websites for these things it still needs to make sense or at least spun so its not the same.

    If you're no longer using a website what you could do is put a nofollow on the page so the other page won't be penalized.
