Duplicate content on a website harms your website’s ranking in Google (and other Search Engines)

Search Engines ‘don’t like’ web pages that duplicate large amounts of content on the same website.  There is every possibility that you have not intentionally created duplicate content on your website, but the way that your website has been configured can result in Google perceiving the content as duplicated.

For example a webpage url – www.mywebsite.com and a webpage mywebsite.com can be seen by google as two separate pages.

It is good practice to choose either version and use what is known as a 301 redirect to refer any ‘duplicate’ versions to the same one.

Your web developer can make these changes or contact Scoosh with any questions you have about your website and duplicate content.
