How would you best handle this paging issue I have found on a website I am working on.
Let's say you read through an article and in the bottom of this is the paging to access more articles so I select 2, then 3. I then want to back to 1. This is were I find the issue.
When I go back to one the url is not the same so I have 2 urls with the same content.
Even in WebmasterWorld paging if you go to the bottom select and go back to one you will see there are 2 urls with the same content.
I select the SEO area in Google http://www.webmasterworld.com/google/
go to page 2 http://www.webmasterworld.com/google/page1.htm
and return to page 1 or the original page I started at http://www.webmasterworld.com/google/page0.htm
Same content different urls, I have 1-100 in paging articles I now have 100 urls pointing at a duplicate url. I have the original page in the navigation so I have 1000's of links pointing at the URL I want to be displayed.
Is there a solution especially if the 1st landing page doesn't change on a daily basis?
I want the paging to be indexed so adding a nofollow isn't a good option, but maybe my only option.
I am open for suggestions.
