On a page of a site that I am working on, the meta description is very similar to the first paragraph of the body text.
Could this be considered duplicate content and be affected by Panda?
Also, since the meta description and first paragraph contain keywords that the site is trying to rank for (not this particular page, but another one), could this be considered over optimization as well and be affected by Penguin?
This page also has a link in the body text (anchor text is the url) to another page on the site and that page is not getting a lot of traffic. Could the similarity between the meta description and the first paragraph of the body text of the page that is linking to it be the reason for this?
The keywords that are in the meta description and the first paragraph of the body text are keywords that the page that it has a link to is trying to rank for.
I would appreciate your thoughts.
