    Using rel canonical and redirect between 3 pages! How Google responds?


    Hi all,

    We have 3 pages with similar topics. Let's say A, B and C. A and B pages have more similar content but C is little away. We would like to use rel canonical to avoid ranking these 3 pages in search results. As per the scenario, we must use rel canonical between A & B; but I want to highlight page C. So I am planning to rel canonical from A to C and redirect B to C. If B is left still, rel canonical might be ignored by Google. Is this correct way to proceed with?

    Thanks

    Not convinced it will work.

    By using Canoncial you are suggesting to Google that this is the 'offical' page, but its up to Google what it does.

    I might be missing something but...

    noindex for it not to show or 301 to tell google the page has moved, the rest is really fluff.

    If these pages don't have any link juice then simply remove it you don't require 301 redirects of if the can't remove due some technical issue then add "noindex,follow" in these pages
    You do your business I do mine because you are you and I am I If we meet it is nice.
