Duplicate pages
« on: 02-11-2017, 16:17:10 »
Hi everyone, Im a newbie in the seo business, and just started working in a company running a yellow page site, in the format of
A stock of professionals(ie elecricians, technicians..) from all fields, then people who are looking for a certain professional can call a number appears on the page, depends on the city he lives in and the professional he needs.
The problem is, currently the amount of duplicated pages is enormous! Since there 're about 1300 cities and even more, and about 700 professions.. Each page for each topic was written once, and was copied to all cities with only the change of the city name.
From what I ubderstand its a huge penalty by Google.

What do you suugest me to do? Maybe dynamic pages?

Thank you!

I suggest a couple of solutions that could be helpful:

1. Try using a 301 redirect to the correct URL and the original content page.
2. Try the rel=”canonical” attribute – that will tell SERPs that a specific page with all its links and content metrics should be treated as a copy of a specified URL.
3. Try setting up your preferred domain and/or parameter handling tool in Google Search Console, depending on your URL structure.
4. Try using Meta Robots with Noindex/Nofollow values

Yes for a new SEO it's a common problem for such huge sites. You just need to include location and city name in each page of title. But you will also include the physical address of each service provider. You also need to include duplicate urls in robots.txt, those will produce from search filter in your website.
