One of my client runs a ecommerce site and to develop a new concept they want us to show a single product in two different urls. There will be 2 different urls and the product description will be the same for both the urls.
I can add different meta tags for 2 different urls to show the differenc but the product description remains the same.
One will be a product url and to create a campaign they will create another url in which the content remains same. Once the campaign is over the campaign url will be removed and may reappear later or permanently disappear.
Please give some suggestion to solve the duplicate content issue.
Some of the products rank well and others doesn't rank well as they will be new products.
please give any suggestion so that i can solve this issue without getting any duplicate content problems. The requirement is that I should show two different urls compulsorily. What can I do so that the Search Engine feel that the two urls have different content.

Exactly what do you mean by this? Where must the two different urls be "shown"?
How is traffic going to be driven to the "campaign" url? If not by organic SERPs -- which would be difficult for two urls with same content to be indexed -- can you simply disallow it in robots.txt or slap a noindex on it?
