URL parameters - Webmaster Tools Help Google’s goal is to crawl your site as efficiently as possible. Crawling and indexing pages with identical content is an inefficient use of our resources. It can limit the number of pages we can crawl on your site, and duplicate content in our index can hinder your pages' performance in our search results.

Two Examples of How One Line of Code Could Kill Your SEO [Case Studies] With all of the buzz about Social Media Marketing, I think too many companies overlook the importance of having a rock solid technical structure (SEO-wise).
