Say I have a fledgling e-commerce (affiliate) site that sells "blue shirts". My pages/categories are broken down into blue t-shirts, blue long-sleeves, blue sweatshirts... and then further down into light blue t-shirts, light blue long-sleeves, etc.
What can I do to avoid duplicate content (Panda) penalties? Particularly, what's mentioned in:
What I've done temporarily is follow all pages, index the categories (highest search vol), noindex subcats (seems to be pretty standard to not have much content in subcats), and index and try to get more content on product pages.
It just doesn't seem fitting to have a lot of content on subcategory pages as they're usually just for drilling down.
