I'm trying to get my head around a potential duplicate content issue, but I have to admit that I know very little about what search engines consider 'content'. For example, would this be considered to be duplicate content:
....if both pages were simply results pages listing the same 'page 1' results?
My issue is a little more complex, but in essence very similar. On my website users can display results based on their location. The location they select becomes part of the URL and there are a total of 42,000 UK locations that they could possibly select. However, it is entirely possible that one location may have the same or very similar results as another. For example...
might be just down the road from...
and as my results are looked up using lat/lon coordinates with a distance radius, its entirely possible that the two locations may have extremely similar results.
Is this going to cause a duplicate content issue?
