    Dear pros,

    I dont have much knowledge about SEO so i just wanted to seek help from you guys. My question is,

    I will create my wp site with unique content in the home page. But i will just use the content from other site for my other pages (My site will be a 5 page business website). Then using robots.txt i will disallow search engines in indexing those pages on which i used duplicate content. I wanted to know if it still affects the ranking of my site!

    Or is there any other way to make this happen?

    Thanks in advance.

    Regards,
    Ganesha.

    it is always better to stay out of duplicate contents, as they will sue you in one way or the other ..

    If you disallow those pages in robots.txt, you are fine. Google doesn't like it when you try to trick the index into thinking it's unique. If you openly say "please dont index these", you are 100% safe.

    Eventhough you copied the data from other sites or sources, you have to rewrite them in other words without missing the keywords and meaning of the content. Then you have to submit on WP site. This helps your site as unique and give good ranking on Search engine.

    If you block those pages with Robot txt then Google can't read those pages and it will not take those pages and the content in them in consideartion while ranking your website. However, its best to use original content. You can go to foreign language sites like german or french or spanish in your niche, and then translate their articles and rewrite them in proper english to save time. This way you will get unique good quality content, and as your website will have more than 1 page on google index, it will rank better. Google often doesn't like one page websites with low content. It like well structured websites with lots of content and pages.

    Btw i'm using the following code in htaccess (maintenance page redirect) while i'm designing the site. Is this okay? it wont affect my site ranking, isnt it?

    Code:
    # MAINTENANCE-PAGE REDIRECT
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
     RewriteEngine on
     RewriteCond %{REMOTE_ADDR} !(***ip address***))
     RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !/maintenance.html$ [NC]
     RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !\.(jpe?g?|png|gif) [NC]
     RewriteRule .* /maintenance.html [R=302,L]
    </IfModule>
