GoogleGuy's site may be having canonical URL problems

The way that Google handles canonization has, frankly, angered some in the SEO community for quite some time. I guess we can call it dramatic irony that GoogleGuy's own blog seems to be having some canonical issues.

From a WebmasterWorld supporters thread:

To me it definetly looks like Matts site is on the verge of a Canonical url problem.

Ok - it depends on what datacenter you are accessing but if you do a search and a search Google now has these listed as seperate pages. Also on some DCs the search is now url only......

Also do a -www for Matts site.

We'll all have a good laugh if it gets hijacked. Meanwhile, I can't say this is a bad thing, especially if it prods Google to put more resources into solving this issue once and for all.

Good to see you here Andy... though I'm starting to think you've been cloned - since you're everywhere - lol You know, sometimes I wish that threads like the one above could be posted in a "Place Your Bets, Let's See if Search Engine's Figure This Out On Their Own" private forum.

>though I'm starting to think you've been cloned - since you're everywhere - lol Cloned? I wish!! Then I could make 100 web sites per day, rather than per year!
