Seems these days I am focusing on the what's wrong more than anything, but I am discovering in life that many times it's not just what you are doing right but what are you doing wrong.  New perspective for me, maybe not others.  :-)

 

On my home page I have article highlights for articles found through out the rest of the site, about 10 or so.  If the highlight(photo, link, text) is the same as taken from the 4 main category pages could I get penalized for duplicate content on the home page?  I want to bring attention to new articles, or articles that pertain to certain time of year.  Thanks

URLs do NOT get 'penalised' for duplicate content

 

 

If the highlight(photo, link, text) is the same as taken from the 4 main category pages

 

So just like hundreds of thousands of other 'blog' 'home pages' then.

"Using WordPress as your CMS isn’t always the answer to duplicate content issues either. Many sites that use it go crazy with their tagging of blog posts. New tags are made up for every new post, and each post gets tagged with a handful or more of them. What happens next is that Google indexes the zillions of tag landing pages, which either has just 1 post tagged or they have the same posts as a bunch of other tag landing pages. It’s especially bad when the tag pages provide the complete blog post rather than just the first paragraph or so."

 

Thanks. Looks like I am good doing this.

Good rule of thumb: The more you complicate a Website the more likely you will do something wrong, either technically or according to someone's policies.
