In my site, I use query string for navigate between products.


  • /ProductView.aspx?ProductID=1
  • /ProductView.aspx?ProductID=2
  • /ProductView.aspx?ProductID=3

Am I faced with link duplicates from an SEO perspective when I do this? To solve this problem, should I use the <link rel=”canonical” href=”www.test.com/ProductView.aspx” /> tag?

For this site, you need to pick one question make the title match. You can ask your other questions using the "Ask Question" link. – Stephen Ostermiller Nov 26 '14 at 11:45

Google recognizes your URLs with parameters and as different because the id is different. I suppose that the product pages have not the same content; therefore, there is no duplicate content between your URLs; thus, you don't need to use the rel="canonical" tags between pages.
