looking through Google's Webmaster Tools today I saw a long list of supposedly duplicate
<meta name=description> /
<title> tag content with all of them showing a duplicate count of 2. A lot of them show as the conflicting URLs something like the following:
The only difference is the case of the first letters of some of the words.
I have to admit I was surprised to see that Google treats these as separate URLs. But now that I know it does - what I can I do to clarify that this is the same website? I don't want to use
301 redirects as it would mean overhead for the user and a tiny bit for the server. I feel like I'll have to make sure all URLs that we put on our pages are lowercase so there won't be any reason for any crawler to crawl the same website twice.
Is there any other trick / thing I can do to get rid of these duplicate warnings?
