My question has some similarities to this one. But since I am asking about a very specific type of section on the page I think it warrants some thought as to whether the approach I am looking to take is considered spammy.
Question: I am wondering if there are any penalties for having duplicate content on the SAME PAGE.
Scenario: The mock-ups provided have an FAQ section in the sidebar of a topic page on the Desktop view. However, on the mobile view, the FAQ section now renders somewhere in the main article body.
My initial instinct was to hide and show the respective sections based on breakpoints, but they would both still exist in the DOM. I was informed that this isn't ideal for SEO, but the only information I am able to find discusses the penalties of having duplicate content on the same domain and not the same page.
So I guess is this actually bad for SEO, or are crawlers smart enough not to care? The two sections never appear on the page at the same time.
