Is this seen as been SEO methods?

Example: I own a sports website that consist of an articles directory. I allow authors to post their article related to sports. My directory comes with its very own RSS Feed.

I have a category called baseball cards. This is a category where people can post articles about the hobby. So the keyword phrase baseball cards maybe used on all those articles; including the title tag and description. Is this okay?

Preferably you should have a different <title>Your Page Title Here</title> and <meta name=”description” content=” Your description here”> for each page.

If the article submissions are infrequent you can simply hand code a suitable title and description for each page.

If the publishing of the articles is automated simply have the authors enter a title and a description when they upload and pick up those fields for dynamic placement in the header.

  2. I was actually researching today on the subject of duplicate title tags on different pages as we have a client who keeps adding pages without telling us and just used the home page as a template and thus, duplicates the home page’s title, keywords, and description on new pages (until we find them – usually by accident).

    Here’s what I’ve found from looking at Google guidelines, Matt Cutts’ Blog (from Google), and numerous other sources: Nothing definite. There is a lot of theories though and the most common theory is that pages with duplicated title tags will be placed in Google’s supplemental results. This sounds to me also like the most likely scenario. Suplemental results are (as described by Google) just like a regular web result, except that it’s pulled from our supplemental index. We’re able to place fewer restraints on sites that we crawl for this supplemental index than we do on sites that are crawled for our main index.

    From Google Webmaster Guidelines…
    "Make sure that your TITLE and ALT tags are descriptive and accurate."

    Your title tag is the main thing google and other engines use for describing your page in the search results. I would imagine that they do not want duplicate content in their results pages. And they get what they want.
