Must there be Original Summaries?

    I know the writing on HP must be original and mine is 100% out of my head and not posted anywhere else.  My question is in regards to the summary blurb.  I have a few sites where you can post a link and give a description. Do these need to be original as well, or is it okay to copy and past the summary text generated for the Hub.  This usually ends up being part of the first paragraph.

    Would it be better to always write a summary for the hub and use it so none of the actual hub is duplicated?  Or just write a new blurb every time I post a link?

    Any thoughts?

      It's not necessary to write an original summary, but in my opinion, you get a lot better performance if you do.  And not because of duplicate text issues.

      Like Relache I've found original summaries to work better. Also if you're posting a blurb as a link anywhere else, write something original for that too.

    Thanks for the input.  One of these days it looks like I have a little cleaning up to do.
