Fighting the duplicate content beast

Consumed => “Duplicate Content – How Many Homepages Do You Have?” by Bryan Phelps on SEO.

=> My value add (i.e., left a comment)…

Thanks for the reminder Bryan.

However, isn’t this what canonical is supposed to cure? This is especially true if you’re tagging your inbound links and they’re being shared back out again. Depending on the tagging a given page could have 10s or even 100s of unique URLs, right? And thus the support for canonical, yes?

Granted it’s subjective, but sticking with the www seems dated to me. We no longer see ads with www.SomeSiteName.com. Nor does TV or radio verbalize the www. It’s SomeSiteName.com. No one under 40 expects the www, do they? My belief is, the shorter and less cluttered the URL / link the better. The www doesn’t add any value. It’s time to kiss it good-bye. IMHO, of course.
