Google offers data like photos or up to 5 reviews via their Places API.

I just want to know, if I can use this data on my website without SEO penalization...

  • Do I need include source of that data somewhere (under images or under reviews)?
  • What will be the impact of SEO? If I include exact review text, Google will not consider this as duplicate content?
  • Can I mark somehow with SEO tags (data-nosnippet or <!--googleoff: index-->), that review/images is not unique content of my website but it's from google?
  • I expect this is a non-issue. Google loves Google so wont penaluse you for using it. Simolarly the "duplicate content penalty" is largely a myth.
