Backlinks to Amazon Product Page. Are truncated URLs treated the same as long URLs by G?

    Hi,

    If you look at Amazon Product page urls, you'll find that there's several url variations that will land you on the same product page. For example, the below 3 variations all go to the same Amazon Kindle page and notice that all 3 will retain the url in the browser address bar as typed below (ie. no redirect to a "main" url variation)

    (1) http://www.amazon.com/All-New-Kindl...pebp=1446979921392&perid=04QYETRVK4SC1S7HWHND
    (2) http://www.amazon.com/All-New-Kindle-Paperwhite-High-Resolution-Display/dp/B00OQVZDJM/
    (3) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00OQVZDJM/

    If I backlinked using all 3 of the above constructs, will G index as if those are 3 different pages/URLs (with duplicate content) and thus divide the link juice to "3 urls" or is G smart enough somehow to count all the backlinks as going to the same place?

    Maybe a simpler way to ask the question is if you send backlinks using the 3 urls mentioned above, will they show up as 3 separate indexed pages in G?
