So, we`re a service where you can book different hairdressing services from a number of different salons (site being worked on). We`re doing both a male and female version of the site on the same domain which users are can select between on the homepage.
The differences are largely cosmetic (allowing the designers to be more creative and have a bit of fun and to have dedicated male grooming landing pages), but I was wondering about duplicate pages.
While most of the pages on each version of the site will be unique (i.e. male service in location vs female service in location with the female taking precedent when there are duplicates), what should we do about the likes of the "About" page?
Pages like this would both be unique in wording but essentially offer the same information and does it make sense to to index two different "About" pages, even if the titles vary?
My question is whether, for these duplicate pages, you would set the more popular one as the preferred version canonically, leave them both to be indexed or noindex the lesser version entirely?
Hope tis makes sense, thanks!
