    Robot & Canonical Tags


    Hi All

    Just need a little advice. We have a UK domain which is our main site but also a EU domain which is a carbon copy of the UK site but prices are in Euros. At the moment we just had a robot.txt file disallowing all pages to prevent duplicate content issues, and the main traffic source is paid and email. I want to remove the disallow but dont want to cause duplicate content issues. Am I right in thinking if we add a canonical tag on all pages citing the corresponding page on the UK site as the original content this will solve the robot disallow issue without causing duplicate content issues.

    Yes canonical tags will help you if you leave the current site content as is.

    Hreflang tags may be a solution for you. Here is a link from google to start you in the right direction...

    canonical and redirection techniques are best for duplicate pages that have difference of keyword or language or currency.
