I have quite a number of PLR articles on the site I'm building and do not want to be penalized for duplicated content by the search engines. Can I place the META Tag above in an html widget on the pages I do not want indexed to prevent this problem?

Hi wbnorwood,

If you change the keywords and the window title on the pages with the same content the search bots wont notice its the same content.

Why would you want the same content on numerous pages anyway?
Can you not just link to the page which holds the content rather than show it on all of the pages?

Thanks Lee,
What I mean by duplicate content is that there are a number of websites out there that have some of the same content. I have private label rights articles that I intend to replace with originals. In the meantime, is there a way to prevent the search engine indexing of those particular pages?

maybe you were writting at the same time as Emmy, she leaves a suggestion below, you could try and add a no index tag at the top of the page in a html widget - that might do it.

Try and put just this in the html widget - dont include any head or body tags.

<META NAME="ROBOTS" CONTENT="NOINDEX, NOFOLLOW">

Hello wbnorwood,

There is a place in the Content Sidebar under Properties where you can add the meta tags such as title, description and keywords. Here is a link with more information on this: Adding Meta Tags.

Hope this helps!

I'm sorry, I believe I answered you incorrectly. If you would like to place the noindex nofollow meta tag in an HTML Widget at the top of your page you can try this. I cannot say for sure that the search engine will find it as they look for meta tags in the Head section, but it is worth a try if it is important to you.
