What is duplicate content and how can I avoid being penalized for it on my site?
I know that duplicate content needs to be addressed in some ways, but this problem is bugging me for some time I have no clue how to solve it.
I have a page say a product page with URL /product/1234/name-of-product that part of it is displaying a stream of news related to this product with a "more" button at the end, like Facebook stream.
Now I don't know how to tell search engines that this PART of the page is the same as the stream URL. The thing is I don't want the stream URL to rank higher than main product page.
Is it right to put a rel=canonical on the stream page that point to product page? If true the product page is only showing a portion of stream and for more it links back to stream page again.
I'm confused a little here. Thanks in advance and I'll provide further information if required to clear this up.
