Hi,

I was wondering if someone could help me with a problem.

We are trying to solve a duplicate content issue.

We have a cars site and where you have lots of attributes about the car like

make
model
colour

we plan to include the attributes in the URL for Google to spider the pages

/ford/focus/

There are attributes which we do not want Google to index e.g. colour

we were thinking of using rel=canonical to demonstrate to google the pages are the similiar

/ford/focus/?color=blue

Given the content is only similiar but not the same will Google accept this as the same page?

IE all the cars on /ford/focus/?color=blue will be blue where as /ford/focus/ is not colour specific

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,

Chee.

Yes, you can use the canonical link element that way.
