    Duplicate Title Tag


    In my website i have more than 10 pages of one category, so it is abvious that i should have same title tag for all these 10 pages with Same Page Heading, but google gives "duplicate title Tag" and "duplicate Description" error.
    what can i do
    should i "NoIndex,Follow" other pages rather than first page, if so then my remaining page creating effort is useless.

    E.g

    Url 1: moogle.in/Delhi/Doctors-C44A0P1A0/ ......here it is P1
    Title 1: Doctors In Delhi

    Url 2:moogle.in/Delhi/Doctors-C44A0P2A0/ ......here it is P2
    Title 2: Doctors In Delhi

    Two pages have different content
    Same Heading

    Can't you just (automatically) add page numbers to the title elements?

    Leave the first one as it is...

    Then have:

    Doctors In Delhi (p.2)
    etc.

    what will google show in its results when someone searches "Doctors in Delhi", becoz in your case google will have 10 pages of my site with these title:

    Doctors In Delhi
    Doctors In Delhi (p.1)
    Doctors In Delhi (p.2)
    Doctors In Delhi (p.3)

    You're asking the wrong crowd... what do people in Delhi search for when they desire the location or details of a doctor?

    Not everyone thinks the same way.

    Are there other references for a "doctor" like: dr., doc, practitioner, or a specific type of doctor e.g. Gynecologists, Pediatrician, Orthopedists, Rheumatologists, Neurologists, Neurosurgeons, Chiropractors, Osteopaths, Physiatrists, etc.

    Are there other ways of describing the local area?

    The thing is "we here don't know" and no post-analysis tool will tell you... but if you have 4 pages - cast a wide spread of target terms to see what you get in your logs (analytical data) if nothing over a few month change until you do.

    Ranks... you'll never get 4 pages ranked for the same phrase no matter what you do so it "just a waste".

    Different Pages Have Same Title Tag


    No problem, just change title tag before next crawling, because if you will use same title tag same problem will again occur, just use following pattern for creating different title tag
    keyword | page name(contact us,about us etc) | website name

    like

    Doctor In Delhi | Contact Doctor In Delhi | Website Name
    Doctors In Delhi | About Doctors In Delhi | Website name

    You get no additional ranking score, support or value from repeating words... so all you are doing is looking more like results spam.

    Additionally, search engines stem words so if you have doctors - that's also seen as doctor.

    What is the benefit by doing this?
    what is the problem with "noIndex" other pages?
    means i want google should index first page not other pages of same category.
    all data comes from database if there are 100 records of a category, i show them in 10 pages, each page contains 10 records so there are 10 pages
    i do not know what to do with remaining pages, if i want first page to be indexed.

    Duplicate Title


    If you will use duplicate title tag for all the pages then may be your site will not listed for long time, just try to use different words, synonyms for your title tag.

    I am agree with Psandl, because if we will put no index attribute than how to rank the keywords which is on that pages. because if we will put no index attribute than that page will not crawled by google.

    You must try to make small changes to every page title. Try to avoid conflicts with Google when you can easily do that.

    Don't use noindex on jummy content. If you want to consolidate all the pages to one page in the google index, consider:

    - writing 1 article that is 10* better than 10 articles
    - putting all 10 articles on one page and use javascript to display the individual pages (like putting the articles in tabs)
    - implement a sort order and point all 10 articles to the first article via rel link canonical.

    If you target the same keyword on multiple pages, you highten the chance on a double listing (indented listing) for that keyword.

    I prefer using parts

    Doctors in Delhi | Mysite
    Doctors in Delhi | Part 2 | Mysite

    But you could try to mix it up a bit:

    Delhi Doctors | Mysite
    Emergency Help Delhi | Mysite
    Surgeons in Delhi | Mysite

    Like said I prefer a non-spammy version. Create a clear pagination on the pages, so Google knows it is part of a series.

    If I can rank 10-20 with 10 articles or 1-5 with 1 article, I would chose the latter. Aim to create the best and relevant page for "doctors in delhi", and Google can't help itself listing you highly. Relevance and quality is more important than SEO'd content with lots of links pointing to it (to Google, not to many SEO's).

    Following these recommendations should increase the likelihood that your site will show up consistently in the search results.

    Ow, you are doing listings of doctors. 2 nods in the right direction:

    Increase the numbers of records per page to at least 3* what you have now (so list at least 30 records per page). This will facilitate a smoother crawl.

    If you use pagination, consider writing them out entirely and don't use:
    [1] 2 3 4 5 ... 20

    but

    [1] 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 etc.

    Have a look at the newish Link rel canonical, and point every page to the "first" page.

    So:

    doctors.html
    doctors2.html
    doctors3.html

    or

    doctors.php
    doctors.php?page=2
    doctors.php?page=3

    all have a <link rel="canonical" href="doctors.html" />

    or

    <link rel="canonical" href="doctors.php" />

    This canonical will only put the first page in the index, but will score keywords from other pages. (so if someone searches for a doctors name that is on page 3, they will get offered page 1 in Googles search results.

    http://googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.com/2009/02/specify-your-canonical.html

    Do make sure your listing has some sort of a sort order (last added, price, color) and if relevants standardly sorts by last added ascending.

    plz check my real problem:

    people add their business information in my site:

    like

    1.
    Title: Healthy Way Clinic
    Address: #237 SEO 67 Delhi
    Keywords(to Target the business): Clinic, Orthopedic Doctor, Doctor, Diagnostic Center

    2.
    Title: Thomos Health Point
    Address: #61 CN 89 Delhi
    Keywords(to Target the business): Clinic, Child Specialist Doctor, Doctor

    I create my dynamic urls as:


    1. moogle.in/delhi/Healthy-Way-Clinic-C44/ (title: Health Way Clinic in Delhi)

    this url will list all Business of Delhi whose title is: Healthy Way Clinic

    2. moogle.in/delhi/Clinic-C44/ (title: Clinics in Delhi)
    this url will list all Business of Delhi whose one of the Keyword is "Clinic"

    3. moogle.in/delhi/Orthopedic-Doctor-C44/ (title: Orthopedic Doctors in Delhi)
    this url will list all Business of Delhi whose one of the Keyword is "Orthopedic Doctor"

    4. moogle.in/delhi/Doctor-C44/ (title: Doctors in Delhi)
    this url will list all Business of Delhi whose one of the Keyword is "Doctor"

    5. moogle.in/delhi/Diagnostic-Center-C44/ (title: Diagnostic Centers in Delhi)
    this url will list all Business of Delhi whose one of the Keyword is "Diagnostic Center"

    6. moogle.in/delhi/Thomos-Health-Point-C44/ (title:Thomos Health Point in Delhi)
    this url will list all Business of Delhi whose title is "Thomos Health Point"

    7. moogle.in/delhi/Child-Specialist-Doctor-C44/ (title:Child Specialist Doctor in Delhi)
    this url will list all Business of Delhi whose one of the Keyword is "Child-Specialist-Doctor"



    So what i mean to say here is that:
    i have hundreds of records that match a single keyword, e.g
    a clinic keyword

    so a business information of a person is targets by different keywords

    a doctor is targeted by "doctor","clinic","Specialty"

    what to do in this case when i have many page for a single url?

    I guess you have to try first using canonicalization. Well, credits to Jesus Nofollow for advising the rel="canonical" tag, for I agree with him.

    I had similar kind of problem before 3 months for my eCommerce website. There are many products with same title. I added manufacturer part no at end of each title. Because, manufacturer part no is unique for all products. It gives me facility to make my title unique & resolve my issue.
