Can No-Indexed Pages With Canonical To New Page Pass Google Signals?

Kenichi Suzuki asked Google’s John Mueller an SEO question that got an interesting response. The question was “I’m curious about this thread. If page A has noindex and rel=canonical pointing to Page B, are the signals of A transferred to B?” John replied, “I don’t think that’s defined.”

Here are those tweets:

You’d think the answer would be something Google has defined? I mean, you’d think a noindex on page A that has a canonical to page B, would not pass signals? I mean, doesn’t Google have to index the page to see the canonical and then it also has to index the page to see the noindex. But still, wouldn’t that cancel out everything?

I guess it depends on other factors. Maybe sometimes google will pass the signals on those pages and sometimes not?

Google Says 60% Of The Internet Is Duplicate

Google Says 60% Of The Internet Is Duplicate

And you think you have a duplicate content problem on your site? Google said, “60% of the internet is duplicate.” Gary Illyes from Google posted this slide at the Google Search Central Live in Singapore the other day.

The slide was taken from a tweet from Kenichi Suzuki who was at the event, here it is:

I do wonder how Google defines “duplicate”? I mean is that 100% exact matches of the content, HTML, near matches, similar topics, etc?

Google has a lot of choices of what it can rank these days for almost any query (minus the 15%) – and this 60% figure really shows how much choice Google has. So that means you need to produce something way more unique and useful than most of what is out on the internet.
