noppid,

I noticed that the first page (results 1-10) of my letter "a" page has the same Title and Description as the second page (results 11-20) when I view source. See examples:

http://northatlanta-homes.com/georgiabooks/index.php?key=a
http://northatlanta-homes.com/georgiabooks/index.php?key=a&p=2

Might the addition of say "page 2, results 11-20" in the Title and Description increase the chances of search engines indexing the second page (and third, fourth, fifth, and so on) since it would be seen as different?

Just a thought.

Lets look at my "letter a" main page (results 1-10):

http://northatlanta-homes.com/georgiabooks/index.php?key=a

When I view the source code, I see the following:

<meta name="description" content="Georgia Books beginning with the letter a from North Atlanta Homes.">
<meta name="keywords" content="Georgia,book">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
<TITLE>
Georgia Books beginning with the letter a from North Atlanta Homes</TITLE>

Looking at the 2nd page (results 11-20), I see:

http://northatlanta-homes.com/georgiabooks/index.php?key=a&p=2 (http://northatlanta-homes.com/georgiabooks/index.php?key=a&p=2)

It has the exact same description and title as the main page:

<meta name="description" content="Georgia Books beginning with the letter a from North Atlanta Homes.">
<meta name="keywords" content="Georgia,book">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
<TITLE>
Georgia Books beginning with the letter a from North Atlanta Homes</TITLE>

Could search engines view this as duplicate content since the heading information is the same?

Hope this is clear.

Yeah I get it. The templates leave alot of room for SEO.

Use the available variables to improve it. If there is more ya need, holler.
