Google Search Console problem with duplicate pages


(Beatrix Willius) #1

Have been fixing some problems in my website www.mothsoftware.com in the Search Console. A couple of pages haven’t been indexed because they are duplicate. I totally forgot to translate my testimonial page so that flagging this page is clear.

But why does Google think that the following 2 pages are the same?

https://www.mothsoftware.com

@bwil
I looked at both those links and they do bring up different pages so I guess I can’t answer your question about Google thinking they are duplicates. Maybe you just need to resubmit each page for indexing.

They look different, not sure what to say. If you’re sure you’re reading the console report correctly then my only suggestion would be to add a “conical URL meta tag” to each page.

Thanks for checking. Been staring at the urls too long. Problem solved.

The canonical only works if you have 2 pages where you can declare one duplicate. That wouldn’t work in my case.

You are able to declare more than 2 as duplicate.
