    Duplicate content certainly have a negative effect on Google, if you use wordpress then it's easy to prevent and block accessing to duplicate content on your website such as archives and cats, just install "yoast seo plugin" it's free and then from the plugin settings you can disable, block, by selecting no index, no follow options by doing it Google spiders will no longer index such duplicate content and eventually it'll fix the duplicate content issue on your site.

    Of course, you can expect penalty too. Just remove the duplicate contents by noindex-ing with meta robots or through removal via Webmaster Tool.

    Because it will really hurt you in ranking.

    Just wanted to give a +1 to this solution. Yoast is a great plugin and will stop Google indexing those pesky category and tag pages.

    Another solution is to add this to your robots.txt

    User-agent: *
    Disallow: /category/
    Disallow: / tags/

    Of course you won't get the other cool things Yoast comes with this way but it does keep your plugins section cleaner. (If you're into that)

    All the other replies to this thread appear to be post boosting spam and no help at all!!!

    Yes, duplicate contents are definitely harmful to your site. Use yoast SEO plugin to disable those indexed duplicate contents.

    And, do post quality content in your site. Good luck!

    Use excerpts on archive pages and no-index tag pages.

    You can find duplicate content using Webmaster tool.
    Use Yoast plugin in WordPress to avoid duplicate content.
