Sites impacted by Google's Panda algorithm have content issues - low quality content issues. But can those be related to having duplicate content? Some SEOs may say so.

But Google's John Mueller said no - duplicate content issues and Panda issues are two different issues he said.

John Mueller answered this on Twitter responding to a Tweet from Marie Haynes asking about this.

The question:

The answer:

Those are 2 separate & independent things.

Here are the tweets:

Google has said this kind of in the past, saying duplicate titles are not a Panda issue. But Google has given confusing advice around duplicate content in the past.
