how to avoid the 'repeat the search with the omitted results...'
on my pages

I have about 200 pages that are script generated, but all of them have distinguishing names (i.e. blue-widget.htm, red-widget2.htm, widget3.htm,etc), yet, all of them still fall within the 'repeat the search with the omitted results included.' when I search for 'allinurl:mysite.com' and aren't listed on the main search per se. I get maybe 4 links on the main search.

How does google know or decide that certain pages are 'similar' or not, and what's most important, does it really matter that pages fall within that category?

if content is very similar Google will think they are duplicates and omit 1 of the pages.

However I came along a very funny thing.

When searching for a company name I got the index.htm file but I didn't got the aboutus.htm file. These 2 files are complete different (except navigation) however they had 1 other thing in common. The meta description. Changed this and they both show up now :).

well, I guess its up for debate what exactly 'similar' means. Every page contains a different widget information, and the meta description and keywords are also different, although they all share the same keyword as well, maybe that's it, but I would doubt?

say for instance I have widget1, widget2, widget3, then my keywords and description tag would be 'buy widget1' for widget1, etc.

No matter what you will only get 2 results per domain per search.

well true for serps, but I am trying to get all the pages when I do a 'allinurl:' search.

Which brings up the question, does the fact that links are placed under the 'ommited results' affect anything at all? in pr or just position in the serps?

Look at the snippet / description Google gives for those pages. Are they more or less the same when you do a allinurl: search?

Go to the address bar and add &filter=0 to the end of the URL there.
