    I have a few sites that the theme uses posts to add the content on the homepage. I didn't really think to much of this until I started checking all my websites in SEO MOZ, Woorank etc, to make sure they are as close to being as perfect as possible.

    What I am noticing is the post and the front page are being marked as duplicate content. Is this something one should worry about? When you check it for duplicate content on plagarism and copyscape nothing comes back.

    Thoughts? experiences?

    I would like to know that too, for my authority sites I am using dynamic home page and I hope google is smart enough and won't mark our inner pages and our home page as duplicate content. On the home page there is just an excerpt of the inner pages content.

    A number of my home pages are like that as well and they rank for their main keyword without even having the keyword mentioned anywhere besides the title/footer (EMD with no dedicated article, just blog posts on homepage). I think google knows how to detect/understand this and not categorize it as duplicate (seomoz doesn't know google's exact algorithms). Take matt cutts blog for example, I never follow the things he says, but I do follow the things he does (the way he sets up his blog, canonical structure, noindex, etc.) This is just my view on it and it hasn't caused me any problems lately.

    I suspect however that it has something to do with how often the home blog posts change, since these homepages are suppose to be dynamic. It might become a problem if the homepage stay the same for a long period of time. My old EMD sites which were all slapped, were built the same as the ones I have now. The biggest difference between what I did before and what I do now is how often I update it. I used to stop updating them around 15-30 posts and the home page would just display the same posts for months, whereas now I update it daily and I don't stop adding content so homepage is completely new every 5 days.

    However, if anyone knows for sure I would also like to know the answer to this too.
