I have a web page that displays 5 items (each with a headline, image and short content like in a microblog).
Item 1 Item 2 ... Item 5
Based on the query parameter in the URL, I will be sorting the items by date, votes, etc.
I in a dilemma to choose from one of the below solutions to avoid duplicate content issues.
- Should I stick with a rel canonical tag to point to the original page from all the pages with query parameters (for sort)?
- Or will it be better to disallow robots when query parameters are present in the URL?
