Duplicate Content Penalty - Dropshipping
Posted 17 November 2006 - 07:41 AM
I am a wholesaler of costume and fashion jewellery and run a dropshipping program on our site, wherein we provide product information/pictures to our dropshipping customers. I was just wondering, because of product descriptions being same over several websites, can I be penalized for duplicate content and is there a way of avoiding this?

However, if you want to avoid one or more of your sites being filtered, you'll the answer is to make them not duplicate.

The so-called Duplicate Penalty is actually just a Filter. Meaning duplicates may be Filtered from showing in the SERPs, but if every other version suddenly disappeared would immediately show up because there was no Penalty. Just a filter.

Look at it from Googles point of view: The want to deliver unique and relevant content to a search. Showing the same content 12 times in a row is bad for them. Therefore they select wich of x numbers of copies they want to show their customers. This is their good right.
They do not care at all how you fell about it as a webmaster or where you got your copy from. They have no mission of making you a better webmaster, designer or person for that matter. Thus they do NOT give you penalties. They filter out what they like for the benefit of the searcher.
Google is not a law enforcement unit. It is a business. They think in commercial ways.

It's got nothing to do with whether it's looked at as a "new" page.
They would simply choose just one of those pages to show, instead of both of them. Makes perfect sense and is exactly as it should be.
