Here is my scenario: I have a website where I redirect my users based upon the device they are using. Let's say a user is visiting from an iPad: I take them directly to the page of iPad wallpapers. The user selects iPad version and I them take them to the gallery of wallpapers where they can select and download any wallpaper. Every wallpaper is the required resolution, I have my reasons for doing this.
Now the thing is there are multiple resolution versions of an image appearing on 5 different sections of my website, each having their own view page. There is only one record in the database table for the image, and based on my consistent naming convention of the images, I pick the required image.
This means when 5 different pages are generated in 5 categorized sections of the website, due to a shared database record, the keywords, titles and every single detail of these is the same besides the resolution of the image, and the section specific details that a page has. The pages also have different paths like
wallpapers.com\ipad-1\cars\Ferrari-dino.html wallpapers.com\ipad-2\cars\Ferrari-dino.html wallpapers.com\ipad-3\cars\Ferrari-dino.html wallpapers.com\ipad-4\cars\Ferrari-dino.html wallpapers.com\ipad-5\cars\Ferrari-dino.html
- My question is, how do search engines see it and how do they rank it?
- Is it a good or normal or bad SEO practice? If bad, how dangerous it is for my site's SEO?
