Duplicate description on every page a problem?

1: The same description of your company at the top of every page on your site?

2: A link on your main page to your main page? Example: a logo that has a link.

3: 2 - 3 links on a page that leads back to the main page?

Mike, you never know these days...:)

No really, I don't see the slightest reason why that should be considered a G crime.
Offhand it doesn't sound like the most effective strategy though

Careful of this if your site is dynamic, i.e. two pages both have the same URL, excluding the arguments.

Thank you, One more Question. What about a navigation system where I create a list of links that show on every page of a catalog?

good idea if it helps your visitors.

Yep, go ahead with the navigation system. The same list of links on every page shouldn't be treated as duplicate content, if that's what you're worrying about.

Actually that kind of a navigation system is usually a good thing because:

1) It helps your visitors (the best reason to use a list of navigation links!)
2) It may help bots that crawl your site (at least they get some links to follow)
3) It helps you distribute Google PR more evenly throughout your site (well, if you want your PR to be distributed that way... if you don't, it's not a good thing... But don't be overly paranoid about PR, think your visitors first!)

I have this at the top of all of the pages for our site, using css to get the text in the right spot and the right place. I have no problems with Google, or should I say, they have no problems with me!

This description is something that in the past I may have put into the header image, thus making the text unsearchable. One of the goals of CSS was to allow better font control and placement, therebye freeing up the text and making it searchable content.
