Dear All,
I want to your opinion and looking expert advice on my query.
I have a page which is very content rich. But, there are 3 paragraphs which are repeated because same topic is called again at bottom.

Please advise. Is this content duplicity? If yes, then any idea, how can i get ride over this issue without changing the content where i have repeated.

Looking for advise with curiosity.

Welcome to WebmasterWorld, sundarrawat!

I would say it depends how much text these three paragraphs have in relation to the other amount of text on the page. Whilst ideally you would not repeat the same text, if it is not much in relation to the rest of the page, it will most likely not be frowned upon.

On the other hand, there are ways to "remove" this repeated text from the page whilst still showing it to the user. One would be having the text repetition in a separate html document. You could then frame this document at the point where within the original page you want to repeat the text and block that html document in robots.txt from being accessed by bots.

How big is the page? (Word count)
Why the necessity to repeat the text?
If the user gets to the bottom of the page, thus having read the entire page, why two more versions of the text in question repeated?

And welcome to Webmasterworld!

Let me explain the issue -

There are 11 offices in a country and every office has its team to manage work but Three is a team who is handling 2 office which are nearby to each other.

We have cited their profile on the page with respective locations. But that team profile is coming in both locations.

We can't merge the locations because locations' name are linked from a page respectively.

Hope you got the issue now.

If you have text that repeats on every page Google seems to ignore it and focus on only the section of each page that has different content. I think they do this to duplicate content on the same page as well, it gets blurred out if you will as Google is only interested in what it deems the meaty area of your pages.
