Multiple Domain - Duplicate Content
is redirecting all to 1 the way it should work?

 7:51 pm on Sep 17, 2009 (gmt 0)

I have a few sites with the same items, descriptions and everything; I did it a few years ago when I have had no clue how SE's work, now I noticed that this a duplicate content problem and perhaps other problems,
What is the best way to treat this issue?
As of now I did a 301 redirect per page so each page is redirected to same page in main domain.
Is this a good solution?

you can also try the "rel=canonical" tags

you can only use the rel=canonical meta tags within the domain.
(subdomains are ok)

how do I work it? need to add it to each listing or just 1 time for the entire domain

the rel=canonical meta tag is specified in the <head> section of the html document and only applies to the document in which it is contained.
if you are properly 301 redirecting every non-canonical request to the canonical url then the canonical meta tag is not necessary
