    I wanted to get people thoughts on this ... I run multiple ecommerce stores and some of the pages are exactly the same ... I have no-indexed and no-followed those pages, but do you think they will have a negative affect on the rest of the site? I am obviously not trying to rank for those pages, but if they were to affect the home page, perhaps its better if I go through and change them all. An example might be the FAQ page or the privacy policy page.

    Make it do index and follow dude. SEs will know from the format of the site whether it is a ecommerce or not. They treat them differently from normal IM sites. Also for the contact, privacy, FAQ page, I have all of them the same across all my sites without any problem.

    Duplicate content used to get you penalized years ago, but these days Google will just lump them all as if they're one page and you probably won't get them to rank for almost anything... Essentially by duplicating content you're just wasting your time.

    There's a proper BST section here on the forum.

    I think changing them to nofollow will solve the problem. Also make sure no page with duplicate content is present in the Google Search. Its better to be safe.

    Not indexing is something like you are hiding them from search engines, doesnt works this way, try to index them, work on them properly, their meta content may differ or something in backend.
