So I have client who has a bit of a canonical loop.
The pages that are indexed are 'site.com/page.html', but on that page there is canonical tag that points to 'site.com/page' (w/o file extension) but then that page 301 backs to the .html version.
Internal links all point to the .html version.
Think this is having a negative impact for rankings? (the pages do rank, but position 2-3) There are about 15K of these pages.....
So I have a client who was clearly hit by the first Panda update on 2011. Their sites has been around since 2004 - with ALOT of original content.
So after some digging turns out that they were invested in the Yahoo answers tactic in 2008 where you would create a persona, and answer/ask questions and use the site as the source for the citation.
The client ended up copying/pasting their articles paragraph-for-paragraph using their site as the citation.
Any ideas how I can fix this? Even though they are the original creators of the content - will killing the content (404) help?
BTW one Panda site I worked on we thought all the scraping was the reason it was hit by Panda. Luckily it was an old authority site so we asked for some help from a "friend" in understanding the problem and scope.... turned out the scraping wasn't the problem at all it was internal structure of the site confusing Google about what pages were about... since scrapers didn't have the confusing content around the scraped content they easily ranked higher. The fix was easy remove off topic internal links programmed into the template.
Semantically, wouldn't a link inside of the page header indicate that it's an important link? But why would a page header want the visitor to navigate to another page immediately?
Is Google going to demote the ranking potential of the page if you do this? Probably not.
