    Duplicate Meta Descriptions - Ecommerce site


    Hello experts!
    We currently have 580 instances of duplicate meta descriptions on our site that are implemented on nearly 2,000 pages. Most of these are instances where we have multiple versions of very similar items. Such as handguards that we carry in multiple colors, or belts from the same brand that we have multiple sizes for.
    I would like to know if this is something that, if resolved, will help raise our Domain Authority and therefore increase SEO performance for the domain as a whole?

    thanks again.

    Proper categorization is needed for products that fall under a specific group. You may resolve duplicate content with canonization when needed. Resolving duplicate content can help increase your rankings since this is part of onsite optimization. But this is just one ranking factor. You need to review the other factors such as thin content and proper utilization of keywords.

    Hey, If it is the matter of duplicate meta descriptions, you can make a small change to make it different.
    Add the color/Size in the description. Share the URL for deep analysis.

    From my opinion duplicate Meta description- Ecommerce site can effected in good or bad both ways. Because, if you write the description which you are already use in your website main content, then it can be effected badly on your site. But if you want that your website will be on top of the google, then you have to check the website of your competitor and when you check their meta description and you can understand that what it is exactly or what it has to be....so, you can manipulate it according to you.
    And, then you can use that meta description on your website, that it can effect very good and your site will be on top with increasing visitors as well as traffic also.
