    Arrow Double Content


    I have a site that has two versions of a catalog:
    one for 800x600 and one for 1024x768. The content is database driven and therefore exactly the same, but I am wondering if this is hurting me because google might consider this duplicate conetent.

    Would it be best to just design one site that works for both?
    How do you guys/gals handle this?

    Thanks!

    Well, i work as a web designer, so i've always been used to just designing one site which works in all resolutions/browsers/os.

    If you're gonna go for both, 756px wide should be fine in both of those resolutions, and give you enough space to play with.

    alternatively, just stop bots from seeing one of the versions.

    Good Call.........


    Yeah, the bots idea is a good one!!! that way I won't have to worry about duplicate content. Will it make a difference if the pages are already indexed???

    Thanks again,

    Shouldnt do. If google has been fine with you having duplicate content so far, he shouldnt have a trantrum if you stop him from accessing half.
