Duplicate content
Collating information

 10:45 pm on Jun 3, 2008 (gmt 0)

I have an idea fro a site which will involve collating lots of info which is already available on the net - however, it's not all in one place, and can be a nightmare to find, and take loads of timr searching...

The info I want to collate is historical and current data - I want to put all the info on one site - ...

My question:

It's difficult to collate this info without putting duplicate content on the web - there are only so many ways you can present the same data...

Will this be a pointless exercise for me - becuase of possible duplication penalties by google and others?

All answers appreciated - Thanks.

If you feel it would be a benefit to the public I would do it. Just make sure you have unique Title and Description tags.

What is stopping you from re-writing the research?

Thanks for the answers guys - much appreicated...

Oh, I wouldn't copy other content, of course I would rewrite it, in my own style, etc...with some added observations of my own.

However, it worried me a little, as the content is available on the net - albeit scattered around...

Thanks again...

It would def be a benefit, especially as most of the stuff around the web is written in another language (the exception being some references in Wiki).

Maybe you should difine what is your purpose, collect for materials or for your site content to attract visitors.
