  • 8. Over 100 duplicate results
  • 9. Noindex Pagination Method p. 1 Fresh Prince pp. 2 pp. 3 pp. 4 • Hi-top • Bel-Air • One- fade strap overall (pages noindex, follow)
  • 10. Noindex Pagination Requirements Annotations: • pages 2-N annotated with noindex, follow pp. 2-N • pages 2-N self-referencing rel canonical • pages 2-N contain unique titles, URLs, and meta data
  • 11. noindex, follow on pages
  • 12. Rel prev/next Pagination Technique Annotations: • Pages 2-N annotated with rel next, prev pp. 2-N • pages 2-N self-referencing rel canonical
  • 13. Noindex Pagination Method p. 1 pp. 2-N
  • 14. Rel prev/next Pagination Tactic p. 1 pp. 2-N [ rel prev / next ]
  • 15. Conflicting signals with rel canonical &rel prev/next
  • 16. With use of rel prev/next:> Keep in mind  Pages with rel next/prev can still be shown in results  But this is an extreme “edge case”  Can optionally use noindex  Use of rel next/prev consolidates signals across the entire series
  • 17. View All Pagination Requirements Annotations: • pages 2-N specify View All as rel View All canonical target • View All page must load fast • View All contains all data in the series pp. 2-N
  • 18. Side Note: View Alls> Challenges  View All pages must be fast  Big sites (esp. ecomm) sometimes dislike them  … but users love them! (if they’re fast)
  • 19. More cool methods! 28
  • 20. Googlebot gets the first ~500 words
  • 21. Recommendations> When you have a great View All  Add rel canonical targets to the View All on all component pages in a series  Ensure the View All contains all the data found on the component pages  Ensure the View All loads quickly 33
  • 22. Recommendations> When View All isn’t an option  Use the rel prev/next method to consolidate signals across the series  Advantage over noindex method  Use self-referencing rel canonical 34
  • 23. Recommendations> Two more options:  Append parameters to the URL with a hash (#)  Progressive rendering as user scrolls 35
  • 24. Faceted Navigation 36

  • 30. Takeaways: • Identify essential and overhead facets • Always force the canonical path regardless of selection order • Build URLs according to queries (how do your users search?) 42
  • 31. Downsides: • Solves nothing for decreasing crawl overheads • Labor intensive and error prone 43
  • 32. Canonical Action! 44
  • 33. These are not the URLs you’re looking for.

  • 38. Takeaways: • Use rel canonical to signal the preferred URL, not as a “shortcut” • Internal link signals should be consistent • Careful with self-referencing rel canonical tags 54
