One untargetted page or many targetted ones?
Would this sound alarm bells with Google?

Let's say I was selling the ever-popular widget on my website.

Currently, I am selling red, green, yellow and blue widgets on my site. Now, if I created separate pages for red widgets, green widgets, yellow widgets and blue widgets, but sold them all on the same website, does Google discriminate *at all* these pages in the SERP? If you searched for 'Green Widgets', would Google display the Green Widget page without seeing the Blue Widget page etc. as a negative in the results?

This is the kind of thing I mean:

We sell niche jewewlry products, most of which come in 3-5 different stone colors. We have had no problems as each of these color-variations of each product has it's own page.

And are the pages named in a similar way to the example above?

No, they simply end in a product number (i.e. prod32.html, prod33.html etc.)

So, could naming pages in this manner be detrimental, in any way?

I doubt that the page naming will hurt it. You just want to be sure to have unique content in each page to keep from getting a duplicate content penalty.

Exactly, You know you can only rank good for so many things on your home page, what if you sell widgets from a-z then aa-zz and so on.

Personally My home page is going for about 8 big ones, the rest of the keywords Im going for I make a seperate page and optimize and make unique content.

As for my widgets a-z I have different brands of widgets so each brand gets it own page.

Then your actual product page(each product is a page)should be different by default, Widget-A Widget-B.

So by all means make tons of page to rank for those red-green-blue widgets, you cant possibly try and do it all on the front page if you have a broad variety.
