“Plumbing the web” – duplicate content issues at Google Webmaster Central

The girls and boys over at Google Webmaster Central have been busy on the Google Developer Day. Now that’s all nice, but when I was searching for something on their blog for “nofollow”, I got 4 results:

  1. http://googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.com/2007/02/come-see-us-at-ses-london-and-hear.html
  2. http://googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.com/atom.xml
  3. http://googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.com/rss.xml
  4. http://googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default

Now as you can see, 3 out of the 4 results here, are feeds… All these three feeds show the exact same content. That is one giant duplicate content problem right there… And I’m not even starting about the horrible user experience this is for me… Come on guys, start plumbing the blog!
