    Duplicate contents in seochat.com

    Google indexes both http://forums.seochat.com/ [PR6] and http://forums.seochat.com/index.php [PR3] and this is not considered duplicate by google. Both these pages are found in SERPs for different keywords. How does this happen. We often discuss that google penalizes sites for duplicate contents.
    Does google excludes it just because Google owns seochat ?

    Because the index page is highly dynamic, it shows as different every time it gets spidered. So it'll happen often that googlebot comes in via .../index.php and find a totally different page from forums.seochat.com/
    In googlebot's (limited) view, the pages are not duplicates (at least not when spidered on separate occasions).

    That said, seochat should maybe do something about the split (=spilt) PR thing LOL. I bet one of us could solve that (.htaccess) problem
