Would Google consider that a duplicate and kick you off Google Shopping? How would you know of the duplicate? I've seen some of mine listed on other sites.

Are you talking about someone else that is selling the exact same items that you are selling, or someone that stole your personal listing and copied the information onto a listing they created on another site?

topper, people may be liking, your items to facebook, twitter, wanelo, pinterest and god knows how many more social sites. This is good. It is not duplication. That is how the social networks work. Basically what those people are doing is recommending you to their friends.

However if someone is just copying your listings and using your hard work to sell the same items, this is not duplication but plagerism and not very professional. Next time you see one of your items copied like that click on it and see if it takes you to your store or someone else's.

I believe Google don't care too much about it. Now if you promo your items in Squidoo. You post can be banned to go online if their system detects a duplicate post.
