    Do you mean that you have the same content on two different pages? And, if so, are these pages both on your own site?

    If so, then what's the problem? Either leave things as they are, or remove one of the page.

    You could also do a 301 redirect from one to the other. Or you can use the rel="canonical" tag to tell the search engines which is the more important of the two pages. But in this case there's no real reason to do either of those. If the duplicate content is not causing you any problems, don't worry about it. If it is, remove it.

    You can remove the other page or simply use the redirection method to redirect the duplicate page to the main page. If you remove one page , then possibly you can get the 404 Error. So use of redirection is one of the best option.

    The pages you referenced are not duplicates. They have the same layout as each other, but different content.

    The only possible problem I can see is that, if you use the Next button to go from page 1 to page 2, the URL of page 2 is different than if you go there direct. That's not ideal, but I can't see how that could do you any harm. In any case, you are correctly using rel="canonical" to resolve that issue.

    I don't particularly like the "slider" effect that you get when you click the Next button. It's unnecessary and distracting. But that's just my personal opinion, and does not affect the content in any way.

    Have I answered your question? If not, perhaps you could explain why you think you have a problem.

    Take a look at this thread, it may be of interest and especially about the meta tag - robots='noindex, follow':

    Just give a redirected link from one page to other so you can have one page and maintain the page wwith fresh and unique content which adds more advantage to your website.

    You should need to remove this content otherwise Google will penalize you from serp ranking. I have a also a blog but its posts are duplicate that is why its ranking have been down from 1st page to 35 Google page.

    Below Step may be useful for Avoid Dublicate Content,

    1) If you have a Dublicate Content in 2 URLS then Second Removes
    2) Redirect with 301
    3) Put the Tag Canonical in page so search engine know that this main Page is this
    3) Put robots tag and write noindex, Nofollow so that search robots not crawl that page

    Unfortunately, this thread has become a fluff magnet and I believe the question has been answered so I'm closing the thread.
