Stumped: On Site Duplicate Content with PDF

by @AnotherUserName (119), 2 weeks ago

Hello- Newbie to SEO so thank you in advance for your help.

I have duplicate content on my site in the form of a blog post and eBook. One is in text/blog post form and the other is in PDF. I can add a canonical reference from the blog post to itself (redundant) but I cannot add a canonical reference on the PDF file (obviously).

Question is: What is the best practice when a site duplicate content where one of the sources is in PDF format?

Think I found the answer. It may not matter after all:

You generally do not need to worry about duplicate content in a situation like this, even if you decide to mirror the content of your PDFs on HTML pages. If we recognize the URLs as containing duplicate content, we’ll just show one of them to users when they search; your site generally wouldn’t have any disadvantage by doing this. – John Mueller, Webmaster Trends Analyst, Google Switzerland

My most recent product launch taught me a lot about my list. Hong Kong Phone Number List And, as one of subscribers or readers, I thought I'd share what I learned so you can perhaps learn something as well for your online business. Hong Kong Phone Number List I share some important ideas and strategies about how to condition your email list to 'respond' to and 'engage with' your offers, so you can make more money as a result. Not many marketers talk about the Hong Kong Phone Number List condition of your email list, but it's an important concept to understand.

The idea is to understand how 'responsive' Hong Kong Phone Number List your list is to your emails. One great indicator to the condition or responsive of your list is to measure your open rates. The higher the open rate - the more engaged and responsive your subscribers are to reading your emails and consuming your content. Hong Kong Phone Number List They are literally "conditioned" to engage and open and read your emails. They know-like-trust you and you've built a great Hong Kong Phone Number List connection and relationship with them where they want to read your emails - and will do so regularly.

One would say this list is well Hong Kong Phone Number List conditioned to respond to you and your information. But opening emails is not the only way to measure the condition of your list. You actually have to present offers to your list and see what their appetite is to buy. Hong Kong Phone Number List Examples: - List A has 100,000 subscribers and many of them are conditioned to not buy because they are just sold too way too often and never receive any valuable content. Hong Kong Phone Number List The owner of List A makes very little money as a result.
