If i have multiple dynamic URLs of the same page like:

www.mysite.com/landing_page.html

and


www.mysite.com/landing_page.html?value=foo

Both are going to the exactly same page and both links indexed by Google, Is it cloaking? If not is it still allowed to do like this?

It's not cloaking at all and you're certainly allowed.

However, Google will treat both as separate URLs and it splits the link juice between them unless you use a canonical tag and define one URL as the defacto standard to use.

Not to mention that one of those pages may get dropped from the index due to duplicate content, and google may drop the wrong one. So making use of the canonical tag as Bill mentioned would be prudent.

Google will penalize you for having duplicate content. For me I believe this is why I was penalized by Panda... so you really, really need to implement canonical tags ASAP.

It's not a penalty. It's a filter.

If my Google adwords URLs are different than my site default URLs having just an additional parameter as pageurl?x=value which produce slightly different contents for the same page which means both default page url and adwords page URL pageurl?x=value would have slightly difference in the contents of that page. Will i be penalized by Google?

Would it be ok if i make different no follow URLs for Google adwords having bit different contents than my default pages?

The easiest for you would be to use the canonical link element to point to the canonical version of URL.

There are the slightly difference in the contents, will it still be ok to use canonical for adwords url?
