In SEO point of view, there is no risk to have a widget with the same text on all pages. Search engines like Google are capable of detecting that it's not the main content of each page. In general, duplicate content issues are generated by duplicating the main content of a page (not header, footer or a sidebar).

I read your question and the comments. With respect to all of the commenters who all left excellent comments from my point of view, I think there is a missing element in these considerations. Small, but important. Your News and Archives pages will have more than one full article each and I assume other things too. It will not be an exact copy of your ...

Between these two pages (1 and 2), you definitively have duplicate content even if you change or add a word (like a country for example) in a blog post. Moreover, your URLs and <title> tags are almost the same. Search engines like Google are smart enough to identify this duplicate content and it will badly affect SEO of your two pages. If you have ...

It definitely could, considering both sites are similar in content, context, imagery as well as other parts, such as architecture or CMS being used. Now, what you can do is simply write programming to serve both domains from one server, cutting down your time and effort in maintaining these two sites, and any others you create using the same content as these ...

If you want to prove that you published a content first, what you have to do is find the dates related to that information from your content and the copies. These are ways to check that FTP upload log. First/oldest HTTP transaction involving that content. inurl: or site: searches on Google plus the use of "&as_qdr=y20" in the resulting URL. Looking ...

Gather as much evidence as you can and file a complaint with the DMCA. Here is the Wikipedia link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Millennium_Copyright_Act Google and Bing will take action based upon these complaints. In the U.S. you can hire an attorney to write a cease and desist letter and send this to any site contact you can find including an ...

Gather all the data you can about the copycats (whois records, copies of their websites) before you take any action, as they can take it down/modify the data after they find out you're taking action. As for future problems, I would suggest using Google authorship in combination with the fetch as Google tool - fetch your article immediately after it is ...

I'd start out by first checking if they have a "canonical" tag on their site pointing to yours; if they do, despite content duplication, Google will still rank yours as the first (and omit their duplication from index). It might still be infringement, but with drastically reduced damage. Second, if your content dates >6 months ago, there is a very good ...

The preferred option is to set a 301 redirect from the duplicate pages to their main page. This will avoid any duplicate content issues in Google. If a 301 redirect cannot be set, then canonical tags are also a valid second option.

Google usually knows which content is unique, which is repetitive and behaves according to that. I would add a descriptive meta title + meta description that will tell a lot about your content to people that are searching for it. The meta data has to be written in accordance with the goal of each specific page (sell product, tell a story, get feedback). ...

Actually in that situation, where you have one long document spread through multiple pages, you want to link the pages together using the next and previous links in your <head> tag. For example, for page 3 you could have something like this: <link rel="prev" type="text/html" title="Page 2" href="/youth-basketball-tournaments/kansas?page=2"/> ...

Your biggest issue here are the 80 words: how relevant are they? I highly doubt you'll get a conclusive answer on a ratio, so I'm just gonna share my experience. If you think about headers, menus, footers and all of that, most websites are pretty repetitive. I have been very successful in one website for example, where the only different content in many ...
