    Duplicate Page Title warnings & Canonical Tags


    Hey guys,

    Just signed up for an SEOmoz account and I am getting Duplicate Page Title warnings on links that are duplicate, rewritten for SEO, but have a canonical href tag.

    I have two sets of links in my store:

    SEO friendly:

    http://www.mysite.com/item/iphone-case

    Operational link:

    http://www.mysite.com/shop/product.php?pid=10


    This operational link however has a href canonical tag pointing to the SEO friendly link as being the primary link:

    <link rel="canonical" href="http://www.mysite.com/item/iphone-case">

    My question is: Do I need to worry about this Duplicate Page Title Warning if I am using a canonical tag on the Operational link pointing to the SEO friendly link?



    Thanks!

    Why are not even your own links all consistent?

    There's already a second thread on this, I think you can nuke this one.
    we could get tagged for duplicate content.
