Duplicate Content
"cookie test"

I'm trying to figure out why a competitor has 197K pages indexed while I have 26000.. we carry similar products and I see additional content that I know I can create on my clients site. The problem is the URL of the competitor. Would this be duplicate content?


I've disabled cookies and I'm coming through the site using the googlebot agent. The cookie test thing.. appended to the URL.. is that the bain of my existence?

if http://www.example.com/index.cfm?cookietest=1 and http://www.example.com/index.cfm return the same content you have a non-canonical url/duplicate content issue.
