Keyword cannibalization affected by longtail kw? Kanute78 msg:4565225 12:01 pm on Apr 16, 2013 (gmt 0) I have read a lot about keyword cannibalization, and trying to get my head around it in a proper way. If Im writing different pages and are targetting different long tail kws, can that cause keyword cannibalization? Eg. pages for (normally title like below) Product 1 (Main product page) Product 1 side effect Product 1 v Product 2 Product 1 Precautions Any one have any experience if this is likely to cause some problems?

Keyword cannibalization refers to using the same keyword on multiple pages in a manner that the irrelevant page ranks for the keyword. If you're targeting different keywords on different pages, you're unlikely to have a problem. Just make sure the page you want to rank for the keyword is most clearly the relevant page. That doesn't mean you can't use a keyword for one page on other. Sometimes it comes in handy for your internal linking structure (linking one page on your site to another using that keyword). Just don't go overboard.

Thanks for the reply, one of the sites I have set up a long time ago, which im just brushing the dust of these days, got the structure with: domain.com/blog/keyword <- blog section for the keyword domain.com/keyword <- main keyword category domain.com/news/keyword <- news section for keyword I do also have several pages with eg. domain.com/keyword-sideeffects.html (long tail keyword), and domain.com/keyword.html (main keyword page). Will these pages take away juice / rank from each other?
