Duplicate content.

Hi guys! Here is a duplicate content question. What is the better idea to do with two pages with the same content?

- To redirect page2.html to page1.html

- Or simply just to delete page2.html (and eventually noindex it in GWT)

page2.html is completely the same as page1.html

Thanks!?

  • promoz seo: You can use 301 redirection or rel canonical tag if you have duplicate contents on multiple URLs to redirect or pointout to the actual page or URL.
    Even if you delete any of those duplicate pages, make sure you are using 301 redirects to remove the possible 404 issues.
  • Nebojsa Djukic: Thanks for the reply. Yes, my first idea was to delete them but then I imagined all that 404 issues that would appear in my GWT. ;

    I'll use 301 redirection. Cheers!
