    Hi all. Just out of curiosity, do you no-index your legal pages (Privacy Policy, Terms of Service, Disclosure etc) for your site?

    Actually there are sites that no-index their legal pages. I've checked their page source. I have never done it too but was just curious though. haha!

    I'd imagine that google's algorithm is smart enough to know what a privacy policy is, and to not penalize for pieces of it being duplicate.

    Yeah, almost every privacy policy page have similar content so there is no chance of duplicate penalty as BIG G is much smarter now a days.

    I think you mustn't worry about this. It's normal when on commercial sites you placed Privacy Policy, Terms of Service, Disclosure.
