Topic: Copied terms of service and privacy

I copied the terms of service and privacy from somewhere (around 1300 words). Can this affect SEO rank negatively for being duplicate content?

Re: Copied terms of service and privacy

You can simply use robots.txt to block search engines from reaching that page. It isn't a great idea to copy stuff word-to-word though.

Ok. What is better, to block search engines using robots.txt or using <meta name="robots" content="noindex, nofollow" /> ?

I would go with robots.txt, works every time ..
