Duplication of content

It means that a content is similar to another. It doesn't have to be the same content (it can have some changes in the sentence structure) but the point is that it has the same lenght and uses the same words as the original.

Content duplication is handled negatively by searchbots. If they experience such thing by indexing the number of indexed sites will be reduced, your rank will be ruined and your webpage can be banned from the search engines as a penalty. Usually the original, first content or page won't get a penalty. It is recommended to protect our content so no one can steal it. We can't prevent copying of the content but we can record the date of creation. With that we can argue against an accidentally given penalty. You can compensate the penalty with quality backlinks too. Sometimes you can cause content duplication by your own: If you use more domains and every domain runs the same webpage. Choose a main domain and redirect the others to that one. By subdomains you should check that the different contents are not available on more URLs. Hide the pages used for testing or pages that are under development from the searchbots -- do this by using the robots.txt or make a password protected login.
