There is a large amount of content on one of my sites that is duplicated across another of my sites. I have noindex on the lower priority copy of the duplicated content. Could that cause a problem with Google?

Tonearm - Is your question about the same site that's being discussed in this thread...

noindex pages without h1 tag
http://www.webmasterworld.com/google/4532091.htm [webmasterworld.com]

I ask because we don't want to discuss the same questions in two different threads.

It's actually completely different, although both involve noindex. Rasputin touched on this question specifically in one post in that thread, but I was hoping to expand on it here.

Have you checked the possibility of using canonical tags to point from the duplicates on one site to those on the other? They might be useful for this type of case.

In my experience, it hasn't been an issue and actually seemed to be a benefit in some cases...

That's interesting. Have you heard of anyone doing something like that?
