    • Similar Product Names• Find a way to distinguish the content• Merge the pages to a main page• Maybe rel canonical to the main page @katemorris
    • Geography– City Names, use state also @katemorris
    • Tag/Category Blog Pages– Mainly blog issues, noindex these @katemorris
    • (Sub)domain issues– Use absolute linking @katemorris
    • Homepages• www, non-www, index on both• Pick one version• 301 server side redirect all others• Ensure that the redirect for www or non-www works on all pages @katemorris
    • eCommerce/Session IDs• Rel canonical is your best friend• Reduce the number of parameters• Set Google and Bing to ignore un- necessary parameters• Make pretty URLs if possible• Examples – Sofa.com – DepartmentofGoods.com @katemorris
    • Search Pages• Nofollow links to the results pages• Noindex pages if not necessary• If necessary (think photography and review sites), make popular searches actual pages, 301 redirect @katemorris
    • Remember• Duplicate Content is not typically a penalty …• Crawl Time is Limited• Indexation is at stake @katemorris
    • Track Indexation• Build good sitemaps using sitemap indices• Track once a week/month as to how many are submitted/indexed• Don’t sweat the small stuff @katemorris
