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?

http://www.example.com/index.cfm?cookietest=1

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?

Thanks

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.
