    I've been posting news on my Wordpress blog for many years. I was cutting text on the original site and then paste it on my blog. I didn't realize it was duplicated content.

    Now, what can I do with this duplicated content? If I add a "noindex" to my news category, will it fix the duplicated content?

    Thanks

    Do you mean to say you're being penalized for duplicating pre-existing content? If so - having it not indexed may or may not remove the penalty.

    Honestly it's always best to have original / unique content. Copying content from other places isn't really a legitimate way to grow your site in most cases.

    I've exclude the category in my sitemap config. Now I guess Just have to wait and see what will happen.

    I think if you fix it now and wait for google update, it will not matter what
