Google and Bing do not have a function such as Yandex to tell them what is the original source of the content. Google will generally go on the first version that was indexed and Bing is possibly the same.

If, as you say, both apps are useful, you should keep them both. However from what I see, the new one should be an evolution of the first, no? If so, you would be upgrading the first to the second, keeping only one. I would upgrade the new one, make it responsive, look great and then keep just one, upgrading the first. For this you would keep the same URL ...

When you have the same content available at many different URLs, you can use URL canonicalization to tell which set of URLs are the preferred ones for search engines to crawl and index. Google introduced a link rel canonical meta tag for this purpose. Lets say that you want to make 500 photos per page the canonical URL. On the other URLs ...

It's difficult to know exactly how detrimental this is. Github does exactly what you describe on pull requests - changing the tab changes the URL but near identical HTML is returned on each of the URLs. However, it almost certainly doesn't matter for them, they don't need both those 'tabs' to rank separately in search results. In your case, it seems to me ...

I had that experience in the past ...

I can't think of a way to to avoid duplicate content implementing like this without also losing the benefit of the content. When I say losing the benefit of the content, what I'm trying to say is that you could load the content via an Iframe (I don't know if you could do this AND load it via JS, my knowledge doesn't run that far!). You can 'hide' content ...

When content is posted to your Facebook page it: Links back to your site with the URL of the content Shows just a snippet from the content Both of those will mitigate the damage done from Google recognizing the duplicate content. With the link back to your own site, Google will be much more likely to see your site as the original authorative source of ...
