    Duplicate Title


    Hi all,

    I recently checked my website using a certain SEO tool, and the result surprised me as it says i did a lot of duplicate title for my pages.
    After i checked the details it shows that the result is due to the fact that I use the same button with the same link to my specified landing page, the configurator.
    The configurator is generating a different url when a certain personalization for example: www.domain.de/leather/?setfav=1&CONFIG[modus]=2&CONFIG[favs]=1 and www.domain.de/leather/?setfav=1&&CONFIG[Modell]=&CONFIG[modus]=2&CONFIG[favs]=6
    I am doing it on purpose with the button and link so the configurator is programmed, and with a click, people will be redirected to a setted configurator, but I dont see the point why it is categorized as duplicate title when it is the same page actually.
    The same result was shown too for www.domain.de/text, www.domain.de/text/. and www.domain.de//text. The tool reported that I use duplicate title 3 times, but the link shows up this way, and when i checked them out, they all work fine, and open up the same page actually.
    What did i do wrong here?
    Another thing is, I have 5 photo albums with the same title, but all canonical to the same landing page, and 2 out of these 5 photo albums show up as duplicate title, while the other 3 are all fine.
    Do any of you by chance know whats the cause too?
    Can anyone suggest a best practise to stop it? I am afraid to be penalized by google because of this.

    Thank you.

    OP probably tried to edit their thread after posting - our automated spam filter is very sensitive, so when it detects a newbie doing this it assumes it's a spam attack and places the thread into a moderation queue where it can't be seen.

    Sorry about that - the thread has been re-approved so the first post should be visible again now.
