Duplicate Urls - Availability Calendar
Posted 22 June 2011 - 09:04 AM
The availability calendar would appear on a URL like this:
and get indexed which is fine.
However there are two buttons on the calendar which are "previous" and "next" which send the calendar on or back 3 months.
Problem is, it is displaying the new data on a different URL i.e.
and it goes on infinitely forward and backwards.
it also uses the same title tag and Google webmaster tools is reporting it as having duplicate title tags.
question is, what do I use to stop it indexing the unwanted extra URLS?

For the robot no index meta, I presume I need to set it up so my site automatically adds this tag to every duplicate page. i.e.
And with the canonical, is that the same kinda thing? i think with that i have to add on every page the rel=canonical tag telling the search engine this is the same page as: propertyname/availability/

Use both, it won't "hurt" anything.
