Issue With Comments Mgmt - Magazine Theme
I was reviewing Webmaster tools for my blog and I noticed that I had a warning for 25 pages on the site with duplicate meta descriptions and title tags.
Digging a little deeper, I see that the duplicate descriptions and tags relate to 5 posts that have pages and pages of comments and when I look at the pages that Google is reporting as duplicate content, they are ......
http://site.com/post 1/comment page 2
http://site.com/post 1/comment page 3
http://site.com/post 1/comment page 4 etc....
This is the case with several aged, popular posts, and it seems to be affecting the site's performance.
Not sure how to handle it, but there seems to be a correlation between when these warnings were posted in Webmaster tools and a pretty good hit to traffic & rankings....
Can anyone help with some advice on how to handle this?
These subsequent pages use canonical URLs to point to the original page. This is honored by Google indexing but for some reason they ignore it for the webmaster tools.
Since this is resolved I'm going to close this thread.
