Will showing recent posts on my homepage cause a duplicate content issue?


MATT CUTTS: Today’s question
comes from David in the United Kingdom. David asks Hi, I’m noticing more
people are using the API for their blog to pull the
latest X posts up to the front page of their website. This gives a refreshing feel to
the home page, but is this considered duplicate? If you do something like this,
my main advice would be not to put the entire blog post
on the home page. But for example, if you have a
paragraph, something that’s sort of a teaser, and then a
link to the actual location of your article. That’s a pretty good
way to do it. If you go to the front page of
my blog, I’ll have a whole bunch of different
stuff there. But then they’re always links to
go to the original article for where it’s located
on my blog. So as long as you don’t have a
completely duplicate blog post where the whole thing is
completely there it shouldn’t be an issue. But even then, Google for
the most part is able to disambiguate and say, oh this
is a page that’s refreshing pretty often. We have a pretty good idea that
the actual content is linked to on these
following pages. So those are just some
best practices. I would tend to just show
excerpts rather than the full blog post, if you’re doing it on
a completely separate page. But it is very common for people
to have their main blog and have the full text
of their posts right there on the main page. And that works completely
fine. So those are very similar
situations. And in general, people
haven’t reported huge problems with that. So I think that that’s
perfectly fine to do.

  1. Really right but check this serp
    goo.gl key nPfSq

    The query is ""Da qualche anno Google, il colosso di Mountain View, adopera un algoritmo per le ricerche che privilegia i siti che contengono determinate keyword (o parole chiave) disposti in una certa maniera."

    You can found many results of "il post" where there are only a widget.
