I have a site that has seen large organic growth over the year. But in Moz, there's one major issue: the site is creating duplicate content. Because there are several versions of the homepage (targeted at certain countries):
- example.com (default)
- example.com/en (English)
Now in robots.txt these country extensions are blocked, but Google is indexing them anyway.
So what happens is that some of our high ranking keywords are pointing to
example.com/blogpost and for other keywords we are ranking with
So as canonical urls will (probably?) resolve the duplicate content issue, I'm worried that we will lose any rankings that involve urls with the country extension.
How to tackle this?
