Under Google Webmaster Tools > HTML Improvements > Duplicate title tags

I can see 800 duplicates listed. They are not exact duplicates but rather pages as shown below:


How can I fix them and not have them displayed in Google Webmaster Tools as duplicates, since they are different pages?

  • Open the HTML (open link -> view page source) and check what is between <title> and </title>. Is it the same? make sure you change the code to make each different.

It appears from your question (if I edited it correctly) that Google Webmaster Tools is indicating you have duplicate title tags for multiple pages.

If you want to fix these errors, you'd have to supply a different title for each page. See this for more on that: Google Webmaster Tools - Site title.

Alternatively, you can chose to block these pages from being indexed by using the following meta tag in them, as covered here: Google Webmaster Tools - Using meta tags to prevent robots from indexing a page on your site.

<meta name="robots" content="noindex">

Or you can block the entire /questions/ directory from being crawled by adding this to your robots.txt file:

User-agent: *
Disallow: /questions/
