Back in March we activated the 'mobile' version of our Volusion shop to try to keep google happy in time for its April Mobile Search Update.
All seemed well but today i noticed in Webmaster Tools that two pages have been flagged as having duplicate page titles.
it's the same category but one is a stripped down version for mobile users, and the other is the category as it appears on desktops and tablets.
On the one hand we're getting a thumbs up from Google for having a mobile friendly version of our pages, but on the other, Google is telling me I've got duplicate page titles.
Since we're using a closed source shopping platform, I'm limited in what i can edit. I've got an HTML and CSS templates for the main site, but only CSS for the mobile version.
I'm not sure what to do, and i guess my options are...
- ignore it.
- do some canonical jiggery pokery
- sack the whole main/mobile thing and get a fully responsive template.
Number one is the easiest option, and it could just be that Webmaster Tools is simply reporting a non-issue... but i really don't know.
As for canonical, letting Google know which is the main content and that the mobile pages aren't really duplicates would be ideal, but I'm not sure how to go about this.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
