We have a holiday property rental site that has numerous pages, each showing 10 properties. We have a Page=all page that shows all the properties and that is a canonical link from each of the sub-pages. The properties are ordered the same on the canonical and sub-pages.
To keep the property owners happy we change the order of the properties (randomised) on a daily basis. Currently we have a googlebot specific page that shows all properties in the same order all the time, but I am not happy that this is the best way of getting ranking.
The question is: How will Google treat our ranking if we remove the (cheating) googlebot specific page, and change the display order of the properties on the canonical page on a daily basis? It's not new content, just the same content in a different order!
