    I have one doubt, i have 2 similar pages with one url /jee-main and other one is /jee-main-2018. Content is totally different sentence is totally different, but means same. Now i want to rank both the pages in google. Now the problem is only 1 page is ranking in google for any keyword, either jee main or jee main 2018 or other keywords. The ranking url is /jee-main. The other url is no where in 200 search results. What should i do? What might be the problem.
