While following a link from a thread here a few days ago I ran into the term "excessive pagination" and have also been hearing alot of talk about duplicate content. I'm preparing to ad some content to my site and wanted to make sure that I understand these terms well enough to avoid making any errors.
Excessive pagination: If I have an article with more than one page, if I put a link to the succesive pages in the index with the main link, will this avoid this issue? My index page is only one click from my homepage, this would put even a three page article ony 4 pages deep (from the homepage that is), is this even an issue for me? Is there a depth that is considered too deep, a rule of thumb so to speak?
Duplicat content: Lets say I divide my indexs based on categories of visitors. So for example there might be a seperate index for buyers and sellers. However; the same article, say home insurance, might apply to both, if there is only one page, but two links to that page from two different index pages, this isn't a duplicate content issue is it? Also, if a printer freindly version is made available thought a style sheet, would this be a duplicate content issue?
Thanks for any light you can shed on this,
