    Duplicate Titles


    I'm getting duplicate title errors on these pages:
    carburetor-parts.com/Pontiac_ep_247.html
    The other page is: carburetor-parts.com/Pontiac_ep_247.html

    They both go to the same page. The 2nd one is simply linking to the 1st one.

    I'm trying to give my customers more than one way to find a page.

    What is the best way to get rid of this error. Is robots.txt the best way?

    Thanks
    Mike

    unless I am going blind the url's you have provided are the same urls
    carburetor-parts.com/Pontiac_ep_247.html
    carburetor-parts.com/Pontiac_ep_247.html


    Oh and by the way you should not really use capitals in a URL. Although it can work fine depending on the server setup the following can happen
    carburetor-parts.com/Pontiac_ep_247.html returns OK
    carburetor-parts.com/pontiac_ep_247.html returns 404
    else
    If both return OK then google can see it as duplicate content as they are different address's

    I thought it was my eyes too. Glad I'm not the only one.
