How to manage duplicate contents for my own webpages?

I have a doubt about the management of duplicate contents. 


 

I have a website which focuses on programming and coding in three different programming languages say C, Java, Python. At present when I publish a post, I  include all the three programming codes along with "Algorithm", "Flowchart" and "Pseudocode"  in the same webpage.  I know that Algorithm", "Flowchart" and "Pseudocode" of particular problem would be the same irrespective of language.

When I search for particular programming problems in google, I can see titles like "C program to ..." or "Java program to... ". So I have decided to split my post into three different pages in each of the mentioned languages to get better ranking. The programming codes would be different. 

1. But what about the Algorithm", "Flowchart" and "Pseudocode" sections?  

2. Can I add these again in other two pages without affecting SEO?

I have read that Google emphasizes user experience. 

3. Is it not enhancing user experience to add all the related content on each page rather than giving them a hyperlink to read the remaining points to another page? or 

4. Will it be considered as duplicate contents?

Note: Copies of each Algorithm", "Flowchart" and "Pseudocode" of a programming problem will be only 3 in the entire website at the present scenario.

There is a lot of myths going around about duplicate content and what Google really determine as duplicate. It is not talking about the odd sentence or paragraph being shown on multiple pages so from what you say it would be perfectly acceptable to create 3 separate pages targeting each programing language and show code examples and common description of the problem. 

The term duplicate content came about due to the high increase in copycat websites, people where basically scraping content from a site and adding some extra styling and re-publishing it. Not only where the pages duplicated but in many cases the whole site. The whole duplicate content debate went into overdrive when Google said they were going to take action against such duplication, but many so-called experts fell into the trap of deleting content if it appeared anywhere on the web or within their own site. 

In saying that, of course, you don't want your pages competing with each other so besides the answer being shown in the programing language you should also make sure you also target its programing language of the page. So make sure you make full use of page titles, alt tags on images, H1 tags etc. You need to make each page clear that it's for C, java etc and not rely just on the coding example  

Good advice?

  1. Recognize duplicate content on your website.
  2. Determine your preferred URLs.
  3. Be consistent on your website.
  4. Apply 301 permanent redirects where necessary and possible.
