    My SEO specialist is pointing out duplicate URLs on my blog. I can explain to him that one of them is the preview link. Is there an effective way to hide the preview link from getting indexed?

    Preview link: http://www.sierrainstruments.com/blog/?p=1784

    Does one of the SEO plugins handle this?

    this can be easily solved by adding a 'rel canonical' on the post header code. Google a bit about the subject so you understand better what it does, but basicly it will tell the search engines to ignore that url and consider another one of your choice. You can confirm that with your SEO guy.
    I'm sure there are plugins for that if you search.
