Ok, Same Page On Two Different Urls?
Posted 06 November 2011 - 01:19 PM
About 2004 I got a newer flash website with similar content, yet kept the older html site.
I found a way to make a mirror html site for the flash site and would like to post some of the pages from the older html site.
Could one be penalized by Google for this?
Obviously if you have similar pages or text on same site you would be penalized, but what about two totally different urls?
I have to ask, you never know! thanks.

And search engines do not index or list "sites", they index and list URLs.
And you have probably heard of the "panda" updates and how it simply "blitzed" duplicated content that could be found on many unconnected URLs (ie content "farms"

You agree there are huge penalties for duplicate content within the same website correct?
I'm 99% that if you have lot of pages where the text is same in same website, you will get a strong penalty.
You are saying that with a different website, different url, there is no penalty?

No there isn't.
But it's a search engine nightmare that you want to avoid. Not a penalty though.

Take a sentence from any article on any "article directory" and run an exact search (in quotes) and if you then remove the duplicate filter by clicking the "If you like, you can repeat the search with the omitted results included." every matching URL where that document can found will be shown, not "penalised" merely filtered.
As Jill says, to be avoided whereever possible but not the end of the world.

Well I was under the impression that there are search term penalties of -5 -10 by Google. At least one SEO consultant told me this, and this is a big culprit.
Still if something is not indexed that is a penalty in a way.
But What is the nightmare Jill?
A dupe page on my newer flash website would be bad for my old html and the new site?
I was hoping they could both benefit both sites.

But what about same page on two completely different url's/ websites?
That wont have the filter issue then correct?
