I own a photography website and for each post I attach a featured image that is exactly like the original one but much smaller. Does Google count the featured image as duplicate content?

This question came from our site for power users of web applications.

No. Otherwise, in general duplicate content is about texts, not images. – Zistoloen Dec 31 '13 at 11:55


It’s very common to have the same image on several different pages. And you even don’t have the (technically) same image in the first place, because it’s a thumbnail.

(However, to be really sure, you’d better include an example in your question.)
