I intent to have a newsfeed on my niche which I gather (or copy) all the news from other website for my reader. It comes with a disclaimer that the news comes from other website.

I suppose it is a duplicated content as I will copy a portion of the news to my site.

I intent to just blast it out for my subscribers or share my page in social media platform so that It will bring value for readers to know what is the latest news in my niche.

Should I set the nofollow and noindex to prevent been penalize by Google?

There are two separate issues.

From Google's perspective, you can do this. You can copy whole texts, no need for quotes or anything. With such a text compiled of complete copies. you can outrank original texts.

This is directly from Google's representative, there is a video so no interpretation. loud and clear. See more in my training: But there is a legal issue as pointed put by Ivy, I mentioned this in the training.

Just put the whole mess between QUOTE MARKS (use the quote symbol of the editor). That puts a [blockquote] at the beginning and a [/blockquote] at the end and tells the search engines that these are quotes and not to be looked at as duplicate content.

Oh is it? That's great. I didn't know the true usage of the blockquotes. Thanks John!

Good example.
A lot of people quoting Einstein's Definition of Insanity in respect to the never ending tax cuts for the rich in our glorious country:

“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results”.

Without the blockquote, Google would rate this as 'duplicate content'.

I use it when I list the usual Pro's and Con's or Talking Points for products I review

A few thoughts:

I've heard of news aggregate sites being sued for duplicating copyrighted content from media providers. Simply providing a disclaimer that it's copied will not be enough to prevent this. So be wary! Just because you seek to avoid being indexed by Google doesn't mean that the media owners will not find their content.

As a reader, I also don't find much value in having things just re-copied and blasted out in a feed. But - if you, through your sparkling personality, your background experience, and your education, are able to add some interpretive value to the news you curate and present - then I'm interested! What's your special spin on things?

My niche is about water filter and I'm looking to provide news about water contamination.
The news are all over the place in different website, so probably I could categorize them based on different state and provide readers with the latest news of water contamination in their state.
On top of that, I can also provide some suggestion of products that is useful to counter the problem. Just my thought.

Sure - you can quote sources, but again, you should be looking to add value of your own to what you're presenting to your audience. You have opinions about the news? Share them. Advice for concerned readers who may not understand it all? Share it! Sell yourself as an authority, not just the products.

PS: I use a GULL water purifier in my home - it's attached to our water and ice dispenser on the fridge. We also have a portable GULL for emergency situations that can be carried in a bag. Removes anthrax and radioactive particles... it's awesome!

P.P.S: so yes, I'd LOVE that niche. :)
