How can I fix "Duplicate Meta Titles' in SEO
Auditing my website www.whatsongreece.com I get 'Duplicate Meta Titles' SEO Errors. I have listings of accommodation archives as 'pagination pages' with same URL but different content. Shall I leave this as is or there a solution to help get rid of this SEO Error?
Search Engines always demands different titles for different pages. So try giving different titles. Your error will be resolved
Google found a page title duplicated when it matches exactly same as other page URL. Adding page ids to each of the paginated pages could resolve this issue. For example, if your page is www.example.com/xyz is the original paginated page. Then you can create each one as www.example.com/xyz?as2345as_page=1 www.example.com/xyz?as2345as_page=2
Here is the thing you can do,
Use Crawlable Anchor Links:-
Your root page URL should be like - example.com/category 2nd page URL Should be like - example.com/category?page2 so on the the remaining URLs
Complement the rel=”next” / “prev” with a self-referencing rel=”canonical” link. So /category?page=4 should rel=”canonical” to /category?page=4. This is appropriate as pagination changes the page content and so is the master copy of that page.
If the URL has additional parameters, include these in the rel=”prev” / “next” links, but don’t include them in the rel=”canonical”.
Doing so will indicate a clear relationship between the pages and prevent the potential of duplicate content.
