I have created a page that lists a number of my clients with links to their sites and descriptions about the site. Each client (on their homepage) has the link to a copy of this page that I have placed on their domain.

I am a little worried about submitting the link page for each site, considering it has the same content.

Should I be concerned or am I being paranoid?

There is some reason for concern. You have duplicate content on many different domains, and that can lead to complications.

I would suggest either linking all the client sites to the main page on your domain, or else craft decidedly different pages for each client site, still retaining the important links.

Thanks tedster,

Looks as if Sunday morning will be spent writing unique content over coffee and yawns.

It really depends on how close they are to one another content wise. It really doesn't take much to make two pages appear different to a spider. Regardless of what some of the se's say, it's my experience, only 5 quality non-stop words will make a page appear different to all the majors.

You can also do somethings in the html such as one page use absolute addressing and the other relative - one page use alt tags in your images - sprinkle in a little css or some extra font tags, or use a double nbsp; separated br's instead of that p tag. The goal is to make the pages about 1k different from each other in pure disk size.
