I have a website network and some of the sections of each of the websites cover the same topics, thus creating a potential duplicate content issue. I am getting ready to implement a strategy in attempts of solving this problem and would like to know if anyone has tried something similar to what I am about to try.
The idea I have come up with is to break each page into two similar sections and then write several different versions of each section. Provided that any of the first section can be combined with any one of the second section this would create a page with unique content. For example, if there are 5 different variations of 2 sections, this would create 32 different web pages that basically say the same thing.

I'm curious to hear what the 'wise old men' around here have to say on this too.

My thought was that G (and others) don't look at the page in the way you are describing.

They are looking at number of words/characters, and even if you are shuffling things around, you aren't going to change the underlying keywords that dramatically.

While it might seem different when you are reading it, my GUESS is that the Search Engines won't see the pages as all that different from one another.

What does everyone else think?

Google for "algorithm duplicate text detection", read for a few days, and you can start to get a rough idea of what you might be up against.
