    I am a newbie and have a question related to duplicate content.

    I am creating a local biz review site.

    Suppose, I have a url listing all the restaurants with pagination:
    So the main page would be: All Restaurants

    Then, in sidebar I am putting links to filter out the restaurants as follows:
    Cheap Eats
    Premium Restaurants
    Take Away

    So, should I nofollow the above ones. I want Google to index these pages but will I get a duplicate content penalty because
    Cheap Eats + Premium Restaurants + Take Away == All Restaurants

    I am about to launch the website so need help.

    As long as the content is not copied somewhere else (outside your own site), there's no thing to be worried about duplicate content. You're not syndicating content from someone else's site, are you?

    As long as all contents are original, Google won't detect it as duplicate.

    To keep in mind : Duplicate pages = 60% similarity.
    So, if you fear that your pages are too similar, insert some introductions contents for example.

    Last tip : If you want to rank your website and subpages, be useful to your customer 1st.

    My website had penalty for duplicated content, then it disappeared on google. After that I changed content. it apprear on google about 1,5 year later. You should be careful with duplicated content.

    There is nothing to worry if you didn?t copy your content from any website..or else try to modify your content to ignore google warning.
