    I have a website that I am putting a procedure on. Depending on your circumstances, the procedure is generally the same for three sets of circumstances. There are little changes to the procedure for each circumstance, but the pages will have about 80% exact duplicate content because the procedure is essentially the same and only small tweaks are make from page to page reflecting the procedure change for that circumstance.

    These pages are reached by internal linking, not to each other, but from the nav menu.

    My questions:

    Will I get hit for duplicate content by doing this?

    If so, should I use robots to disallow two of the three pages so Google will not count them? My customers will still be able to reach them from the nav menu even if they are not indexed by Google if they need to.

    As always, thanks for your help!!

    Yeah if this was me I would block the pages via the source code using the robots 'noindex' 'follow' meta tag in the page head.
