Hi,
We are using the Flickr module http://demo.silverstripe.com/flickr/page/4 to showcase pictures at the bottom of a page of content.
What we notice is happening though is that the content on the page eg:

- Flickr With this module, you can pull images from Flickr...)

is indexed more than once e.g.

http://demo.silverstripe.com/flickr/page/1
http://demo.silverstripe.com/flickr/page/2
http://demo.silverstripe.com/flickr/page/3
http://demo.silverstripe.com/flickr/page/4 etc etc

This penalises the site because of duplicate content.

How are we best to solve this issue? Would specifying the canonical tab be the recommended way? http://googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.com/2009/02/specify-your-canonical.html

Thanks a bunch,

simply you can use an if conditional on the HTML head section, like the following, and add a canonical tag

<% if ClassName == FlickrPage %>
<link rel="canonical" href="$Link" />
<% end_if %>
