How to deal with duplicate content for Software Listing site?

(Vineet Gupta) #1

I am creating a Software Listing site where companies will list their Softwares. My concern is the Software Information/ Description they will share on our site will be same as they have shared on other Software Listing sites.

Isn’t it bad from SEO perspective because of duplicate content?
Do I need to worry about this?
Can I do anything?

I cannot even think of changing/ updating their content with fresh content, because there will be 1000’s of Software that will be listed.

Pls suggest?

Thanks In Advance

Here’s what description would be like: http://www.capterra.com/p/147638/Optimizely/

Such descriptions are used on multiple sites. I am wondering how sites like capterra.com protect them from duplicate content…?

I am looking for a solution for this since long. I hope HBB community can help me in sorting this out now.

As far as I know, this is not going to be a big issue bro. You can take websites like Wikipedia or Poems, for example, we use the same content on every website right. Or take “Author Bio” as well bro. There are some profiles which are like 4-5 lines, they’ll use the same content on all the websites. :slight_smile:
