In serps i see many shallow ecoms pages that have only one sentence on it and one picture
If your product is more unique .... ?
What is better noindex the page or Set the canonical Tag to the subcategory page where this item can be selected.
Like most ecom we have the very big problem of similar items (differ only by length, colour, weight a.s.o). We put most similar items on a summary page and canonical hrefs to this one. But now we have 5 similar summary pages for this item only differ by colour. We will put them together and will let the user take control of the item selection by ajax.
Aakk, u know if pictures still in serps while noindexing the page they are on?
I noindex them but google crawls them anyway and i deem that this could be rising a DC or shallow content filter again.Google will crawl pages that are noindexed, it has to in order to see noindex attribute. Noindex directive has nothing to do with crawling, it impacts indexing (that is, showing the page in SERPs).
