    Yeah you should definitely check whether your site has duplicate content or not, because it is one of the ranking factors.

    After the Panda update, Google penalizes the sites that have duplicate or poor content.

    Hello, it's a very good question!

    Of course it depends on the search system, but right now the leading ones are getting more and more strict about the duplicate content. Thus, I would advise to avoid it. As @Srikanta Banerjee has mentioned, it may affect your ranking in a negative way.

    If you want to learn more about SEO and things to avoid, check this post :)

    As you understand, absolutely avoid it if you do not want to get a penalty from Google!

    Duplicate content is content that appears on the Internet in more than one place. When duplicate content is present, site owners can suffer rankings and traffic losses. if Google discovers your content is not unique and doesn’t rank your page above a competitor’s page.

    Unfortunately, the content cannot be totally unique, as there always will be someone somewhere, who used the same words, structure etc. Especially when it's about the same or similar product - the ways in which you can describe it well are not infinite. The point is to not copy/paste it and to write it yourself (or using such services).

    It's a huge issue and I think that it's better to keep your content as unique as possible

    Always, using duplicate content is a waste of time and energy. If anyone does that, they should get their websites hijacked for being lazy. Quality content helps solidify one's online presence and is more apt to provide you with opportunities to receive new streams of traffic.

    Yes, you need to worry about duplicate content as much as you worry about getting traffic and rank higher in search engines. It's very important to ensure there is no plagiarism in your content to avoid search engine penalties and also copyright issues

    Duplicate content on the same website is the real problem
    The process of canonicalization
    rel=canonical: the ultimate guide to canonical URLs • Yoast
    >>>When you have several choices for a product’s URL, canonicalization is the process of picking one of them. In many cases, it’ll be obvious: one URL will be a better choice than others. In some cases, it might not be as obvious, but even then it’s still pretty simple: just pick one! Not canonicalizing your URLs is always worse than canonicalizing your URLs.

    Of course yes! How can you fail to worry over duplicate content if your competitor ranks better than you simply because search engines consider your content to be fake? It is however not easy to have completely original content, especially if you are dealing with the same niche
