39435Re: Duplicate content problem?
- Nov 2, 2009I've been thinking about this for a few months now. The problem is with
the feeds getting crowded with so much content you have to set a limit
to 50 items per feed or else the feed size exceeds 500K. You definitely
don't want your feed to exceed this size, directories and even
FeedBurner will complain that the feed is too large or/and that it takes
too long to download.
I've been thinking about adding an option to Blubrry PowerPress
<http://www.blubrry.com/powerpress/> (Podcasting plugin for WordPress)
to provide an extended, slimmed down podcast feed. Basically if you can
trim down the amount of information in the feed, your feed could include
a lot more post items. I know there is value in having full post
descriptions and iTunes tags such as keywords, subtitle, summary,
explicit, etc... but if there was an option to trim this information
after say the first 10 episodes it would allow you to set your items per
feed setting to something like 500, which would keep your evergreen
content in the feed. What would be a good threshold, first 10 include
all the tags, then 11-500 include shorter summaries and only the
essential iTunes tags? Would this need to be a setting each podcaster
could decide? Anyone have any thoughts?

while an event in the news will relate to an old episode, but because
there are so many of them I fear that the older ones are getting lost in
the Wordpress blog and the connection to the news event isn't obvious .
So what about this: what if I start up another web site in which I
briefly write about the current event and then point visitors to the
relevant episode on my main site? That's okay, right? I remember
hearing about the problem of "duplicate content" (which I don't fully
understand) and I wasn't sure if this scenario fit that issue.
