Dynamic page... is it considered one page or many pages?

 5:39 am on Apr 21, 2011 (gmt 0)

Hi there,

I created a dynamic page to display 10 items. (I have millions of items).

I wish Google only to add the main page for those 10 items, rather that adding (Example) "page.php?id=1"

For bounce rate reasons, I need to display in an image map every item in my inventory. There is no way I can add a nofollow rel tag.

Does google consider page.php as one, or will Google think that page.php?id=7 is another page...? I need to trim my site ASAP. Too many pages, penalized because of it.

My main problem was having all the links displayed on an image. That means image map, and image maps do not accept "nofollow". I also tried making cell into links, but I was not sure about the nofollow.

So, what did I do, since it has been days tinkering about it?

I created an image. Put it as background in a table. Then created ONE "view button" (image) and repeated that button among the items. (Meaning, one button for all items displayed).

Images and their links can have the nofollow tag.

Have you considering noindex-ing pages 2 onwards?

In terms of PageRank flow, the "noindex,follow" robots meta tag is a better choice here than rel="nofollow" on your links to deeper pages.

The amount of PageRank re-flowed might be miniscule for each page, but, if properly recirculated, given enough of these page, it could add up. I haven't done the math.
