Note that one of the links appears to be for Talk:, the urls for Talk: and non Talk: should have the same spelling. Ideally we'd also fix the page titles such that Google clearly indicates one of them is a talk page.

Luke: Any idea why we have two versions of that page? It doesn't seem that one is redirecting to the other.

Using rel="canonical" in circumstances might make sense from an SEO point of view, but only if this is likely to happen again on Kuma.

The 2nd link is a Talk: page - we could either use rel="canonical" on Talk: pages or at least put 'Talk:' in the title for search result listings.

Ah. I thought the issue here was different. I noticed that the following pages both exist.

I thought this might be a problem, but I see that we rel-canonical from the second to the first. This covers the issue mentioned in comment 0.

With regard to comment 4, it looks like it would not be a good idea to rel-canonical from Talk pages to actual articles. Quoting Google documentation...

Marking as fixed and resolving the needinfo, but please correct me if I'm wrong.
