Although Google is perhaps on top when it comes to Webmaster tools, you can’t discount Bing. It’s the next most favored google search now and plenty of people use it. The great thing is that you can use tips from both Google and Bing to your Web site to help make your site the most SEO-friendly Web site there exists. Today’s tip originates from Bing on how to remove duplicate links coming from a Web crawler’s path.
The Bing team makes all the claim that the Internet is limitless. While we are aware that the Internet is not literally limitless, new URLs are found everyday. Many of these URLs are duplicates which make the finding of new relevant content challenging since Bing has to dig through these relatively useless links.
One solution that Internet sites put into action to guide search engines around these useless links are canonical tags. Bing states that these tags are not the best answer by using an instance which says canonical source URLs only waste crawling bandwidth. If you are using canonical tags on your Web site, you’re basically setting up your Web site to not be crawled to its most important content.
A far greater solution according to Bing is to use URL Normalization. Employing this tool, you can set up parameters that tell Bing not to crawl certain elements of your Web site.
