Duplicate content

Similar or identical content that appears in more than one place. This should be avoided in line with our policy of having a single source of truth. 

Duplicate content can affect the rankings of SEO for web pages and create inconsistencies in information presented to users.

In the CMS, Smart cards and links should be used to signpost users to content on the website. News story links and Staff profile links should be used when you wish to include a staff member or news story on your site that already exists in the CMS.
