In the Google Search Console report "Duplicate without user-selected canonical", how do you find the duplicate URL of a particular URL? Going into "Inspect URL" doesn't seem to identify the location of the other (duplicate) file. I can find the duplicate only when the "Google-selected canonical" selects the other URL, but that doesn't always happen.

To find the source of the duplicate, you could Google a large part of the page content to find out wich page(s) are indexed with this particular content.

For a better result, you should put your query into brackets.

Plz provide more details (url for example) for a more detailed answer.

    I'm removing the comment asking for a tool. Requests for a tool make this question off-topic. Such requests are not allowed here. May 15, 2019 at 9:56
  • disagree. the tool would presumably be related to the topic; therefore, it wouldn't be "off-topic" as you assume.

Clear Answer: There is no way to find its easily.

You can just use external tools for detecting duplicate contents without 100% exact result or you can try it manually.
