    There are so many things that people do not talk about that is confusing me.

    Like when i post an article, the article is on my home site but also as an url like:

    http://testwebsite.com
    http://testwebsite.com/article

    Is it not so that this will cause duplicate content since i can reach that article by going on the home site and to the article url ?

    No, that will not be called duplicate content.

    Yes, this is not a duplicate content. Because you will have the link in your article heading so google bot will follow that and this will not be called as a duplicate content. Every site have internal linking so its fine....

    I would like to say that when you are posting to your blogs please make sure that you are posting high quality content because that pays for long time. Cheap and low quality content will not pays you back...

    Actually I would argue that it is duplicate content to some extent but that Google is smart enough to figure out what's going on when it encounters a common CMS like WP.

    WP does indeed have serious dupe content issues in the way that it dupes the content on category and archive pages.

    There are numerous ways of dealing with the issue, e.g.
    * robots noindex your category or archive pages, or just get rid of one or the other
    * use WP custom fields to add extra unique SE text to each post, and display different info depending on whether the post is shown on a post page, index page, category page etc.
    * use snippets of varying lengths, rather than showing the whole post, on pages other than the primary post page
