Something in my page making a dupe page (6 posts)

    Hi All-
    http://bestsyracuselawyer.com/
    I am using a Graphene Theme, on 3.3.1 and the AIO SEO Plug in.
    I also have SEV through my pages host Godaddy, which analyzes my pages and gives SEO Checklist tips: It tells me that "18 pages are using the same title tag" and "18 pages are using the same description tag" Tells me I have a Duplicate Content issue because of it and gives me this list:
    http://bestsyracuselawyer.com/
    http://bestsyracuselawyer.com/?shared=email&msg=fail
    http://bestsyracuselawyer.com/adoption-law/
    http://bestsyracuselawyer.com/adoption-law/?shared=email&msg=fail
    http://bestsyracuselawyer.com/criminal-law/
    http://bestsyracuselawyer.com/criminal-law/?shared=email&msg=fail
    http://bestsyracuselawyer.com/david-zukher/
    http://bestsyracuselawyer.com/david-zukher/?shared=email&msg=fail
    etc.... for 9 of my pages.
    Now I can see the trouble is in that something in my page is identifying itself as its own page. I added a contact box to each page which is the only email I have on the pages, could that be doing it?
    There is no contact box on the David Zukher page, yet it shows another page for that too.
    How do I make these pages no longer pages without losing anything else?
    I cant find the ?shared=email&msg=fail when I Control F in the html.
    Google webmaster tools, tells me all my pages are healthy and have no issues. Thank you for any help you can give. I appreciate it. KA

    I guess that my question is, are you asking this because you want to make sure your site is SEO friendly, or because you are concerned about something else?

    If you are concerned about the SEO, I would suggest that you listen to the Google Webmaster Tools outcome over the Godaddy outcome. After all, it is google search results you are probably wanting the SEO to be tailored for.

    If there is another reason, my might want to look into the Canonical links in the SEO plug in (I have not used this plugin so I don't know if it has the capacity to manage that). Google Canonical URL link to find out more about them.

    Good luck

    Simon

    Simon,
    Thank you for taking the time to respond to my question. I appreciate that. I am asking because I am mostly concerned with duplicate pages. The second reason I am asking is to simply educated myself on why such a thing would a occur, if it is in fact a problem to concern myself with and how to fix it. I will check out your Canonical links suggestion. Thank you again for your response. Karla

    Hi syracuselawyer,

    I'm having the same problem with my blog http://mymindmovies.net

    The "?shared=email&message=fail" part of the url indicates a problem with the email part of the "shared" plugin, which allows people to share your posts on facebook, twitter, etc. If your hover over those icons you can see the URL. I also have duplicate Meta tags shown by the Attracta Meta Tag analyser on Hostagtor cPanel.

    Have you found a solution?

    I'm going to try re-installing shared plugin, or find a different one and see if that works.

    Thanks, Greg

    If you are using Graphene, the easiest and surest way to do this is to grab some code from Addthis.com and add it to Graphene's social sharing option. Works like a charm.

    These dupes seem to be created by sharing buttons. Do you find the duplicates in your sitemap?
