I want to make sure my product listing is 10 products per page which are not in a series (link).
They have explained how to use
rel prev for pagination when a long page has been divided into multiple page and the multiple pages becomes a series were as my condition is not that. They are unique listing which are not related to each listing... All the listing links leads to a product profile page.
So lets say my site is all about cars and I have a Used Audi page with 1000 Audi's for sale. There are 10 used audi cars on each page so there's 100 pages in the series. If I start to utilise
rel="next" should I set page 2 onwards as
noindex,follow? The content on Page 2 all the way to 100 only changes ever so slightly as different cars will be for sale on different pages but from a "Panda" point of view the pages are incredibly similar as they'd hold the same meta data as page 1 in the series along with duplicate reviews & news etc.
I want Page 1 in the series as the Main page for Google to send users too and I don't see the point in Google indexing page 2 > 100. What's everyone's view on this?
Lastly with the
rel="canonical" tag should page 2 to 100 all point back to page 1 in the series or the individual page itself? E.G:
