    Hi casinobonuseslisting,

    This is really subject to opinion. We all know that Google's algorithms frown upon duplicate content, however I also think the following:

    • Google encourages the use of RSS feeds as they love sites which share information freely, they even have their own available. Their algorithm, in my opinion, is sophisticated enough to realise the difference between intentional duplication of content and an RSS feed to aid a users experience.

    • I also know that duplicate content is only an issue when a certain % of the content contained on a page is duplicated. For example if only 15% of a pages content is duplicated then they will still view the site as useful to users, therefore implement no duplicate penalty. As I said first of all however, the actual percentage is unknown therefore open to opinion.

    Just make sure you have plenty of unique content on the internal pages and the homepage, as you do now, and I think you should be alright.
