I was looking through Google Anlytics information for one of my web sites.
When looking at the "Content Drilldown" section, I see one subdirectory listed two ways:
/imported_widgets/ and /Imported_Widgets/
I am on a Windows server so any URL's containing either the capitalized or all lower case spelling resolve to the exact same page.
When I first started this website I used the "/Imported_Widgets/" format. Later on (about 7 years ago) I switched to the all lower case form. I have to assume (as best as I can determine from Analytics) that the current in coming requests for the miss-capitalized pages are due to links on other websites created before I changed to all lower case.
My question is simply this. Since I am on a Windows server both forms of incoming capitalized/uncapitalized page requests get served the same exact page, so I don't have any "page not found" problems. But is there some way that the GoogleBot evaluates inbound links from other sites like this and as a result feels that it has found some sort of duplicate content issue (two differently capitalized URL's with the same content)?
I was surprised to see that Google Analytics saw these as different pages and it got me wondering if the Google SERP's did too.

[edit reason] switch to "Widgets" instead of real products [/edit]
