I have a doubt that someone more experience might be able to help me.

Google Webmaster Tool has advised me about duplicated tags and contents in the website I work for. However, when I see the pages related to the duplication they actually are the same URL but with inexistent or odd ends like those:

Pages with duplicate meta descriptions

ANTHONY MEN'S FACIAL MOISTURISER, lowest price guaranteed, hassle free returns.

  1. www.xxxxxxxx.com.au/anthony-all-purpose-facial-moisturiser-70g-16573.html
  2. www.xxxxxxxx.com.au/anthony-all-purpose-facial-moisturiser-70g-16591.html
  3. www.xxxxxxxx.com.au/anthony-all-purpose-facial-moisturiser-70g-16595.html
  4. www.xxxxxxxx.com.au/anthony-all-purpose-facial-moisturiser-70g-16615.html

The actual URL is

  1. www.xxxxxxxx.com.au/anthony-all-purpose-facial-moisturiser-70g-1.html

My question is:

  1. Why do those odd number come in the end of the URLs making duplicated content in Google Webmaster Tool?

    Also we have URLs like that www.xxxxxxxx.com.au/home-gifts-c-959/gifts-for-him/0 with "/0" in the end of it that is being reported by WMT. Do you know why this is happening in Magento?

  • Which version of Magento? – benmarks Sep 3 '15 at 5:46
  • basically it started on 1.12 and we still have it on 1.14. Any idea? – RodSic Sep 3 '15 at 5:48

I believe this is due to a patched bug in Magento core. Ref https://magento.stackexchange.com/a/2818/5 and check your product data; I'm assuming this is a product which has a connection with a configurable product or is itself a configurable product? If so, check that https://magento.stackexchange.com/a/34781/5 might resolve your problem.
