What is duplicate content and how can I avoid being penalized for it on my site?
I have internal pages that rely on an external API which I would like to build upon user request. Two options I thought about:
- Make lots of 'thin' pages that specifies that if you want content about X, you need to log-in, and then the page will be built. Pros: user understands what he'll get when logging in. Cons: SEO implications of such a solution due to the mass 'low quality' and 'cross-sites duplicate content'
- Make them all redirect to ONE same generic log-in page. Pros: No duplicate low quality content. Cons: Lots of internal links to the same log-in page.
Which would you recommend?
