My Comments

My website used to rank very well until the penguin update and i believe it got hit by duplicate content issue, since i have regional airport transfers and i use pages according to which destination they will travel to and depending on the search result change the destination name and use same page it really doesnt make any point to make different unique content pages for every destination. I think its the (madlib spam) i try now to noindex this destinations. But its annoying since this pages makes sense to my customers but obviously not google.

I don't think duplicate content on the regional transfers pages is the issue, because I looked at two of them and they both point to marmaris-transfers.com/transfers/results.php as canonical. So you've already dealt with the fact that the pages for different regions are mostly the same, but I'm not certain you've done so in the best way possible, as the canonical page isn't particularly useful, except as a place from which users can get to the page they really want.

 

I'm not suggesting I know of a better way to deal with this. I'd probably need to spend a lot more time poking around in the site to come up with a better suggestion. I'm just saying that duplicate content on that particular set of pages is most likely not the cause of a Panda issue (and from your description, this would be Panda and not Penguin, I believe).

Thank you for your answer, I forgot to mention that I added the canonical and noindex tags one week ago and will hope that see the effect after the next google refresh.

And I'll chime in with the usual "Your website isn't valid"

Though if you are going to use facebook or G+1 , you have to accept that their invalid bespoke tags will never validate!

I'm the resident idiot but are you targeting those keywords I've bolded as individual keywords?

 

Because a Keyword like Airport, is going to be near on impossible to rank for no matter what.

Yeah good advice i need to this also..

 

My biggest concern is the duplicate content issue which i try resolve with canonical link, but by doing that i have lost regional combination keywords. (i try to avoid madlib spam)
