The best way, seen from the users and Googles point of view, would be one "main" domain to which all other domains redirect with a permanent 301 redirect. If you absolutely have to have all domains on their own, I would recommend building a small individualized landing page for each "secondary" domain and then link to the "primary" domain.

If you have a straightforward pagination structure, such that page/1 always has the same context as index, then I agree that you should designate one of these duplicate URLs as the canonical one, and either use rel=canonical links to inform Google about this, or simply redirect the non-canonical URL(s) to the canonical one. In fact, the best option would be ...

To begin with, you should link to your pages using a consistent URL. If example.com/index.html and example.com/page/1 contain same content then you should remove one of these links from your website by editing HTML files or PHP code. Next, if google or other search engines have picked up both URLs you can either: Send a 301 Moved Permanently header and ...

No don't use a 302, because it means temporary redirection. Set a canonical link in page 1 to index.html. That is the right way. REM: both pages exist, but Google (and other search engines) will only pick one to display in search results.

Yes you are correct. When searching for content in Google the site at the top of the search results is considered the Authoritative (least in Googles eyes) source of the content. This doesn't necessarily mean the original source, Google sometimes gets it wrong, but the most part is pretty accurate at figuring out the original source. If doing a search for ...

Use CopyScape http://www.copyscape.com/ It will show you what part, and what percent of the text is copied from other sources. Of course no content can be 100% original. Paraphrasing is not an illegal thing and is an integral part of content writing. But it's about the total percent of the text on a specific web page. Note that with the tool above you will ...

But what about duplicate content issues? As mentioned in comments, this should not be a problem for you - you won't get "penalized" for duplicate content. When Google finds two pages the same (duplicate content), Google is likely to only return one of the pages in the SERPs - that is the only problem - the page that doesn't appear is not penalized as ...

If it is only a handful of URLs you are worried about, then use Joomla's redirect manager (components > redirect) to redirect to the page you want. You may also want to list the canonical versions of your pages in a sitemap to give Google some more hints about which should be indexed. The only problem with on-site duplicate content is if Google choose the ...

It depends on how many products you have. But here few basic standard practices. If content is unoriginal and less than 300words; mark for no-index and no-follow. If content is original and less than 3000words; mark for no-index and do-follow If content is original and more than 300words; mark for index and do-follow. Suggestions on improving - Add ...

A while back, I wrote an article about cloaking on the Internet. http://snapwebsites.com/journal/2012/06/snap-seo-what-cloaking-and-why-search-engines-do-not-it Maybe that will shed some light about the technique and what search engines really do not like. Note that the fact that a page is marked as NOINDEX does not mean search engines won't access the ...

You add it to your head <head> <title>Example</title> <link rel="prev" href="prev_page.html" /> <link rel="canonical" href="current_page.html" /> <link rel="next" href="next_page.html" /> </head>

If you are the owner of the URL shortener, then you can do the following things: Use a 301 redirect instead of a 302 redirect. If you host the URLs, serve a rel=noindex in the header of the pages served through the shortened URL. Add a canonical URL tag to the header of the real page. Use rel=nofollowwherever you are using a shortened URL that uses a ...
