Stephan Spencer at of NetConcepts on bot herding:
- herd bots to permalink URLs
- Include sig line and headshot photo at bottom of post. Link to original permalink URL.
Ecommerce site duplication:
- Selectively append tracking code for humans
- Probably herd bots to “View All” pages but you will need to test how many products and page number links to include on the pages as mileage will vary
- You have to use the NoFollow to block PageRank leakage
- Do it but use 301 redirects
- Use the right characters when pattern matching as you can make easy mistakes.
A lot more tech info that I will post later. Stephan has a lot of great advice.
