I run a WordPress eCommerce store powered by WooCommerce. I have a large inventory of products and most of the product descriptions are the same for all products and it's mandatory to include it. It's creating a large amount of duplicate content on the site.
Each category has 6 products. I thought two solutions, can you suggest which one is the best?
no index and follow product page and link it to categories page using canonical tag
index and nofollow product page and link it to categories page using canonical tag
Which is the best solution and is it a good practice to use canonical tag to link to categories page?
