At the recent Search Engine Strategies conference in freezing Chicago, many of us Googlers were asked questions about duplicate content. We recognize that there are many nuances and a bit of confusion on the topic, so we'd like to help set the record straight. Duplicate content generally refers to substantive blocks of content within or across domains that either completely match other content or are appreciably similar. Most of the time when we see this, it's unintentional or at least not malicious in origin: forums that generate both regular and stripped-down mobile-targeted pages, store items shown and -- worse yet -- linked via multiple distinct URLs, and so on. In some cases, content is duplicated across domains in an attempt to manipulate search engine rankings or garner more traffic via popular or long-tail queries. Though we do offer a handy translation utility , our algorithms won't view the same article written in English and Spanish as duplicate content. Similarly, you shouldn't worry about occasional snippets quotes and otherwise being flagged as duplicate content. Our users typically want to see a diverse cross-section of unique content when they do searches. In contrast, they're understandably annoyed when they see substantially the same content within a set of search results.

The custom storage domain name feature allows you to register a custom domain name for a given storage account for anonymous blob access using that domain name. Currently we provide access to blob storage using the following domain name:.
The first Virtual Webmaster Unconference successfully took place on August 26th and, as promised, we'd like to share the main findings and conclusions here. As communicated before, this event was a pilot, in which we wanted to test a if there was an appetite for a very different type of event, and b whether the community would actively engage in the discussions. To the first question, we were overwhelmed with the interest to participate; it definitely exceeded our expectations and it gives us fuel to try out future iterations. Despite the frustration of many, who did not receive an invitation, we purposefully kept the event small. This brings us to our second point: it is by creating smaller venues that discussions can happen comfortably. Larger audiences are perfect for more conventional conferences, with keynotes and panels. The Virtual Webmaster Unconference, however, was created to hear the attendees' voices.

This procedure is also quick and inexpensive way of resolving domain name disputes but it does not exclude the possibility of using other legal remedies. In case of a dispute independent arbiters are appointed to deliver a verdict with which Arnes must comply with. When the ADR is started both the complainant and domain holder must follow the proper procedure, use proper forms and mind the terms. We have prepared a graphic illustration of the procedure to offer you some help.
