I wrote a motorcycle maintenance article but don't know if I should cite the Clymer manual I used as a reference. I may write several articles using this reference. Google will see duplicate content, the reference, in each of these articles and penalize their ratings. Has anyone else dealt with this problem?
A reference, meaning simply the source without any quoted text, should not cause a duplicate content issue. If you quote only a small snippet of text in a single article, this should not cause problems with regard to duplicate content, either. However, replication of the same quote in several hubs may be a problem. You can link to the external source, up to two links to the same site in each hub.
