Duplicate Content/No Index

Msg#: 4488938 posted 3:22 am on Aug 28, 2012 (gmt 0)

I plan on creating separate landing pages for my PPC campaigns in an effort to track conversions. These pages would be identical to existing pages. In an effort to prevent duplicate content issues is using the "Noindex" tag on these duplicate pages the safest way to go? And since I'm a novice with this stuff can anyone direct me to an example on how best to use the "Noindex" tag for this purpose?

http://developers.google.com/webmasters/control-crawl-index/docs/crawlers [developers.google.com]:
AdsBot-Google (Given the special nature of this crawler, only directives for this user-agent are followed.)

therefore, you can use the meta robots noindex on your landing pages and they will be noindexed in the search engines and the general robots exclusion will be ignored by the AdWords review bot.
