    If you add the rules of a sport to your website, it will be duplicate content. I don't think that's a big deal, the official rules are the official rules. If you want to be really careful, you can always set those pages to be noindex, so Google doesn't index them and flag them as duplicate content. You could also link to them in another location.

    I have an idea about this. Take a screenshot of the rules and use an image instead of text. Make the text the same as your website by cutting and pasting it into whatever your website style is, then view it using your default browser, then do a screenshot and put that image in your website.

    You can't be done for dupe content that way.

    Here is my take on duplicate content. The only real "penalty" for duplicate content is that Google will decide which page is the most relevant and show that one - not any of the others.

    What this means to me is that if you are trying to get your page ranked for say "Rules of Boxing" then probably one of the authority sites is going to out rank you. However, if you are trying to rank for "Rules of Boxing in Timbuktu" then the chances are the authority sites will not have "Timbuktu" in their content and your page will rank.

    Having said that I always add content around the duplicate content to increase the uniqueness of the page. I have many sites in local vertical niches so we often have very similar content in multiple different cities and have great success in ranking these sites by primarily changing just the city.

    I always thought that the first site to get the unique content indexed by G, is the one that doesn't get penalized in any way for dupe content, regardless of how relevant or how much authority that site has.

    There's a difference from getting penalized and not being in search results. Having a little duplicate content on your site is no big deal as far as I can tell. Just don't expect the duplicate content to end up high in the search results and drive traffic. If the content is relevant and useful to your visitors, don't be afraid to use it.

    Not in my experience. I have seen sites with duplicated content that outrank the original.

    This whole thread is LOL.

    RE-WRITE THE CONTENT.

    Don't cloak the content, either spin the hell out of it so it's unique but unreadable for humans, or re-write it if you need it readable.

    You can check for duplicate content using Copyscape. If you are publishing the "rules" from an organization that has copyrighted them, then get permission before publishing. You should post them without editing, so the meaning is not distorted. You may want to link to the organization, should be a great backlink.

    I was going to suggest an image as well, if you don't particularly care about the keywords / SEO for the page. (Although you can still get around that by writing a little bit of content for the page.)
