    Hi guys,

    I have a decent authority site, and want to start adding duplicate content (mostly text) from other sources purely for visitor. Which is valuable for visitors.

    Google doesn't like duplicate content, so i have noindexed and nofollowed these pages.

    Has anyone seen issues with doing this constantly - creating new posts based on duplicate content. I don't want to hurt my sites search engine rankings and want to do everything right by the book.

    Yes - this seems to be a good strategy from my experiences as long as your intended purposes is to provide more content to your visitors.

    I think google still checks the pages but since it's noindex it will not rank them. I do not know what impact it may have this way on your website. But if we are talking about a page even if it is ******** only the page will be slapped not the whole website.

    Make sure you make it noindex and block it on robots.txt.
    You clearly say to google that you do not want to index this content so they won't punish you for that. Isn't it better to rewrite all this content?

    YOu will get tons of traffic during 6 months. Gain authority etc. Think about it ;)

    Use canonical tag not noindex or nofollow.

    Since they won't get indexed, duplicate content won't affect your rankings. So, nothing to worry about SEO-wise.

    Hello,

    I would have a small question: does a noindex content can appear with a google search ?

    Thanks.
