I want to make sure my product listing is 10 products per page which are not in a series.
They have explained how to use canonical or rel prev for pagination when a long page has been divided into multiple page and the multiple pages becomes a series were as my condition is not that. they are unique listing which are not related to each listing... all the listing links leads to a product profile page.
So lets say my site is all about cars and i have a "Used Audi" page with 1000 Audi's for sale. There are 10 used audi cars on each page so there's 100 pages in the series. If i start to utilise Rel="prev" and rel="next" should i set page 2 onwards as "index,follow" or "noindex,follow"? The content on Page 2 all the way to 100 only changes ever so slightly as different cars will be for sale on different pages but from a "Panda" point of view the pages are incredibly similar as they'd hold the same meta data as page 1 in the series along with duplicate reviews & news etc.
I want Page 1 in the series as the "Main" page for Google to send users too and i don't see the point in Google indexing page 2 > 100. What's everyone's view on this?
Lastly with the rel="canonical" tag should page 2 to 100 all point back to page 1 in the series or the individual page itself? E.G: /used-audi/page-3/
Feedback would be massively appreciated.
