I have 4 types pages:
- Main landing pages that contains part of 3 other types with links to its.
The top 3 types have pagination, but landing pages don't. They a each a single page. I want to rank with the landing pages, not other pages.
Right now many of my companies or products pages have good ranking. I can 301 redirect well ranked companies or products pages to related landing pages and then set new URLs for other pages. For example setting
../x/Product. and then set rel canonical for new URLs of products and companies and services pages.
Is this right way? Is it a good idea? Is the 301 redirect not required?
Second Question: My pages types are not completely duplicated. My main landing pages are just summary and part of other 3 pages types, but I don't want rank those. I want rank just with landing pages.
Should I use rel=canonical?
