My customer has started using an SEO company to improve the rankings of his site and they have flagged-up an issue. I'm not sure if what they are saying is accurate and, if it is, what i can do about it.

Basically, these two urls, which are actually the same page, are being flagged as duplicate content.

www.domain.co.uk/file.php?title-1 

www.domain.co.uk/title/

The seo company has asked me to remove one of them, which i obviously can't do.

Any advice as how how you deal with this scenario would be welcome.

Is there a chance that i have set up the permalinks incorrectly?

Thanks

Jeff

Tim is correct that canonical URLs are the correct solution to this issue. For further reading and more technical specifics, I can recommend Google's documentation on duplicate content/canonical URLs: https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/139066?hl=en
