I have a few clients who want to add industry-provided content (blog posts) on their site.
For example, a plumber will subscribe to a plumber`s industry organization and one of that organization`s perks is that they provide licensed blog content that their members can post on their websites. It`s pretty easy to assume that dozens - if not hundreds - of other members are posting this same content on their websites.
I`ve got several clients asking about this - from several different industries - so I don`t think this is an unusual practice. But how does this work with Google`s duplicate content rules? How do you advise your clients when they ask about this?
I have been advising my clients against this practice, but the number of organizations offering this kind of service is increasing, so I`m wondering if I`m missing something.
