I have a few questions as to which method should be used in certain scenarios for a new site. I'm confused because it seems that with this Panda update I should not have shallow content.
1. I have a status page which displays a short status for each event, like twitter. It doesn't display any more information other than what is displayed on the main events page. Should this status page have:
<meta name="robots" content="NOINDEX, FOLLOW" />
Or should I get rid of the individual status page completely? The reason it's there is if someone wants to link to this event specifically.
2. I have a main object page which displays summary information about the object, as well as the latest 3 events related to this object. I also have an associated object activity page(s) which displays all events related to this object which is paginated if over 10 events.
How should I treat these 'activity' pages?
a. for all activity pages: <meta name="robots" content="NOINDEX, FOLLOW" />
b. for all activity pages except page 1: <meta name="robots" content="NOINDEX, FOLLOW" />
c. allow indexing for all activity pages
3. I have a object table details page which can be sorted by column. For example
object.php (default sort)
How should I treat the pages that have a sort variable?
a. <meta name="robots" content="NOINDEX, FOLLOW" />
b. canonical pointing back to object.php
c. allow indexing for all sort variables and add sort parameter to <title> and <desc>
