If I have a page which is related to a product category, and it has two subdirs with different type of content, do I need to use a canonical to the 'main page'?
example.com/watches/ example.com/watches/sell/ example.com/watches/buy/
In this case the main page is the first one, it lists all of the products ordered by the date they were published. However some users want to buy only or sell only, therefore it's better to give them the option to choose.
Since buying and selling are two different (but related) things, I would say the canonical is not needed, because if people search for watches to buy, they are not interested in selling watches.
Or I should forget the
example.com/watches/ and only keep the two different pages for the two different user groups?
I would really appreciate if somebody could tell me what would be the best in this situation.
