    Duplicate kws,title,descrip


    Hi, if my homepage has a target set of kws+title tag+descrip and if another page on my site also has the same kws+title+descrip is this a bad thing? As will it mean they compete with each other on rankings?

    It's a waste to target the same thing on every page.

    Further to the above, you need to try and ensure each page on your site has its own TITLE and Description, these should reflect the target keywords of those pages.

    In an ideal world each of your main keywords should have their own unique landing page, correctly optimised for those keywords. This not only aids ranking prominence, it will also aid click-through rates and usability.

    Usability is a massive deal. If a visitor goes to your homepage, then to one of your internal pages and is presented with exactly the same TITLE tag and keyword focus, they're going to wonder what's going on and are ultimately less likely to convert...
