    Hi, sorry to bother again,

    I want to know:
    I have page A and page B, they are different urls under a same domain. And their title, description, etc in the meta tags are different, while the pages share same content on page.

    So are these two pages are counted as duplicated? And will be any DA conflict between them?

    Thanks again,
    Regards.

    Yes, this is duplicate , both page A and Page B require different content otherwise use canonical tag .. otherwise make quality content on that page.. still Google check your content if your content is duplicate then your site may be go penalize or bad effect in future..

    You might want to change the content on one page to make both pages unique and that Google won't count them both as duplicate.

    Yep, both will be counted by google as duplicate content. You gotta rewrite or change the other one to avoid any issues.

    While I heard some theory saying as long as meta tags indicate different information, pages will not be counted as duplicated in spite of same main content.
    Thoughts?

    edit: sorry that I lost the source

    Yes, this will be considered as a duplicate one. Try to make unique content for each page.

    Try to spin your content, but be careful with this method because Google don't like content with too much similarities. You can find some cheap web editor over internet, make some researches and you'll find the right solution for your specific needs.

    You must use rel=canonical element to avoid one of the two URLs getting reindexed in the future. Or, you can just rewrite content to make the other version appear unique.

    Surely, this is not about the duplicate title and description tags alone. In case the content is the same - the pages are duplicate and conflicting, so there are way less chances to rank any. The content should be as unique as possible, and in case these are product pages (for instance) that are the same but reflect different variations of a product like color or smth - you`d better make it one unique page with options.

    As others have warned you, more than one version of an indexed page (with the same content) is considered duplicate content.

    But if you wish to use the same content on Page A and Page B, why not keep either A or B from being indexed. Exclude one of them from search results by adding a "nofollow" and "noindex" meta tags, and/or adding a robots.txt file.

    Obviously the idea behind creating a page on your website is for people to see what you have to offer. You can still do that by promoting the excluded page through Social Media or even PPC.

    if you are on wordpress, use YOAST plugin : go to post => under Yoast settings => configure canonical tag.
    that's it

    That's what we mean when saying Duplicate content. Sure thing it needs to be rewritten, make the text on one of the pages unique.
