Web site homeowners can safely repurpose a video as an article, for instance, with out concern about Google seeing the 2 items of content material as the identical.
It’s even potential that duplicate content material isn’t as nice of a concern as website homeowners and SEOs make it out to be, Mueller explains.
This subject got here up throughout the Google Search Central workplace hours stream held on January 22. A query is submitted from a website proprietor who runs a YouTube channel. They be aware when a weblog article is repurposed as a video it tends to not rank in Google.

Google’s John Mueller on Duplicate Content material
Google just isn’t able to doing a textual content evaluation of movies after which mapping the textual content to net pages. If a video repeats what’s acknowledged in a weblog submit phrase for phrase they’re thought of totally different items of content material, Mueller says.
Related content material introduced in numerous codecs won’t be seen as duplicate content material. Google makes this distinction as a result of searchers could also be searching for various things at totally different instances.
Generally individuals go to Google to learn an article, and others wish to watch a video. Google wouldn’t select to indicate one over the opposite as a result of they repeat the identical content material.
Mueller encourages repurposing content material on this means and says website homeowners ought to hold doing it.
“To begin with we don’t do textual content evaluation of the movies after which map them to net pages. In case your video has the identical content material as your weblog submit it’s nonetheless one thing totally different. Individuals generally go to Google with the intent to learn one thing, and generally they go to Google with the intent to look at one thing or to take heed to one thing, and people are very various things.
We wouldn’t not say the textual content on this video is strictly the identical as a weblog submit subsequently we don’t present both of them or we solely present one in all them. So when you’ve got a video that matches your weblog submit I believe that’s completely tremendous.
That’s an effective way to unfold your info in numerous channels. I might positively not cease doing that. I might not take the video down or take the weblog submit down. If the weblog submit just isn’t rating in google then that will be very particular to the weblog submit and never particular to the video weblog submit mixture.”

Again to the preliminary query which pertains to sure weblog posts being listed and never others.
The positioning proprietor says weblog posts which have been repurposed into movies are usually not rating in Google. Why is that?
Mueller says it has nothing to do with the video and article sharing the identical content material. He provides if Google have been to detect duplicate content material on a web page it wouldn’t trigger any massive issues.
“Additionally, with reference to duplicate content material, when you had the identical content material in textual kind in your web site the place it’s clearly duplicate content material then what would occur there may be we’d decide a type of variations to indicate in Google Search.
It’s not the case that we’d say: “oh this web site has some duplicate content material, we won’t present it in any respect in Google.”
Relatively we are going to say: “There are two variations right here. We are going to decide one in all these to indicate and we are going to simply not present the opposite one.”
In order that’s one thing the place even after we do acknowledge duplicate content material it’s not the top of the world. It’s actually only a matter of us saying we don’t wish to present the identical factor a number of instances to customers within the search outcomes. So we are going to decide one and we are going to present that one.”
