    Duplicate Content Issues with Single Product on Multiple Categories


    I am working on eCommerce website. [Spider Office Chairs] There are many products which are distributed in multiple categories. Due to this multiple URLs are available on website with same content.

    http://www.spiderofficechairs.com/23_261/executive-high-back-espresso-eco-leather-office-chair-with-locking-tilt-control-and-cocoa-metal-base.html

    http://www.spiderofficechairs.com/23_29_261/executive-high-back-espresso-eco-leather-office-chair-with-locking-tilt-control-and-cocoa-metal-base.html

    I read article regarding duplicate content: Theories in Duplicate Content Penalties

    On my website, there are many URLs with same content so, will it make impression on my current ranking? I am searching best solution for it so, I can create very unique pages on website.

    Thanks

    KernelPanic has a very simple and valid suggestion. Canonical Tags. Use that.
    If you do not want to list products in different places its your decision. yes it will take care of duplication issues too. But its not a smart way of doing things. In the worst case if not done properly it will leave deadlinks around the site and the web as well. So decide what you want and if you gonna take Kernel's advice.

    I am going to create static product URL like below.
    http://www.xyz.com/manufacturer-name-manufacturer-part-no-unique-product-sku.html

    If I will distribute above single product on various categories so, URL will be same on various categories.

    Thanks for your valuable advice.

    Right now, I am surviving with long URLs like follow.

    http://www.spiderofficechairs.com/23_35_99/professional-air-grid-back-office-chair-with-fabric-seat.html

    Above product manufacturer name is OfficeStar & part no is 5500.

    So, my new URL will be like follow.

    http://www.spiderofficechairs.com/OfficeStar-5500-28017.html

    I will distribute above URL over multiple categories.

    Will you think short URL help me during long trail keyword search over search engines?
