We have two particular cases of content duplication:
- Product Manuals
- Product Videos
For example a Product Manual needs to be downloadable directly from the Product's page. We also have an Information Page with a collection of Manuals. I am concerned because based on visitor data can tell people are downloading the same manual on both pages, probably expecting something different. Likewise we have videos around the website such as a Product Review video on our Reviews page, then we have a video page to easily access all videos. Because of the thumbnail it hasn't been as frequent as the document, but I have identified people watching the same video.
What strategy can be employed to minimize this? One would be removing duplicate content. But there's gotta be another way that allows for the content to be available on specific pages as well as a compilation page without confusing users.
