I've read some articles that say not only is duplicate written content a problem, but duplicate images as well.
Does anybody know if this is true? Even if the filename is changed? Even if the image is cropped/resized?
Should I be very careful about posting images my clients provide as is on my site?
Then I was reading up on google official blurb about duplicate content at:
And they say:
"For instance, instead of including lengthy copyright text on the bottom of every page, include a very brief summary and then link to a page with more details."
Translated into english...does this mean smaller boiler-plates/templates are better as far verbiage?
Google brags they are very good at splitting apart the template from the page content...what to them constitutes a good template? Minimal and efficient? Less links? Less images? Not too top heavy?
