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).
