Wordpress Cat & Post Pages: Duplicate Content?

Hey,

My site has the following levels of content:

1-Home page
2-cat pages
3-post pages

When I make a post it will usually be 2000+ words of unique content. I will use the <!--more--> tag so that it only shows the first paragraph on the category page.

The paragraph that ends up showing may be 100 or 200 words max from the 2000+ word post.

Is this considered duplicate content? Will this "canabalize" my content?

Thanks in advice,

~Sean

Can anyone share insight on this?

Thanks so much!

I don't know the answer to your question but I do know that as long as you (I) use a blogging platform to present material to the web, it's going to be with us.

I have two blogs. One is tamed down because I have an IRL stalker. I throw "Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farms" articles on it. On the other, I throw greatly edited versions of the first posts, speaking my mind firmly and clearly. I might be getting tagged for having duplicate content, too. But, as long as that guy is around to give me grief, that's the way things will have to be.

My advice? Just keep writing great original content that doesn't match up too closely with material on another domain. I'm of the opinion that Google has figured out how WordPress works, can identify it and a half-dozen other blogging / CM systems and can account reasonably well for the inherent duplications.

you could always use the little 'excerpt' box on the posting page. write a summary of the post, but dont just copy the first paragraph.

then your cat and tag pages can use the excerpt instead.
