I´m working on a site that needs to show some of the items in its content in more than one category. So, item X is shown in category A but I also need that content in category B. I´m thinking about a good way to solve this in order not to be duplicating content. And I would like your comments on previous experiences with this type of problem. Main issue to solve: 1 The items URL URLs in the site are www.domain.com/A/X If I solve the second URL to be www.domain.com/B/X I´d be duplicating content, so maybe I can unify URLs and solve it like: www.domain.com/items/X ... But how do I show the category name in the body of that page for that URL? How can I tell if the item is in category A or B? 2 Only some of the items need this double categorization will SE´s overlook the duplicate content issue or am I still in trouble?
To complete the scene there´s another problem I have to take care of. The tech department is using this type of tracking in order to measure the effectiveness of the links in the Home page [domain.com...] The content of the home page is allways moving (like a news site)so they use this type of tracking in order to give the homepage administrator info on what content is popular on what section of the HomePage.
