    When I go to Google Webmaster Tools I show my blog has over 300 duplicate description pages, because a duplicate dynamic url is generated from one of my plugins (emo-vote), the dup urls are similar to the following:

    1) /dallas-penn-mister-switzerland-sneaker-hunting/
    2) /dallas-penn-mister-switzerland-sneaker-hunting/?emo=0&vote=Not+Feelin+It

    or

    1) /drake-gets-punkd-by-ashton-kutcher-scared-for-real/
    2) /drake-gets-punkd-by-ashton-kutcher-scared-for-real/?emo=2&vote=Feelin+It



    How can I get rid of the duplicate urls? Google removal tool does not allow wildcards. Please share your thoughts.

    You can use robots.txt

    I think what would work for you is:
    Code:
    user-agent: *
    disallow: /*/?
    
    Not 100% sure on this one though.

    Thanks Zapdos. I have put it in robots.txt and will see what happens. I'd expect in a few days I'll know if it worked or not. Thanks again for the great advice.
