    Which version of Magento are you running? This problem occurs because normally Magento creates a few different URL's for each product.

    For example, your product may be under this URL - http://www.yourdomain.com/product1.html but Magento will also create another URL when you add it into a catergory so it would also become http://www.yourdomain.com/category1/product1.html.

    I think that this can be solved by installing a canonical tag module. I am currently looking into this for my site and will post back here with any more information.

    yeah what mapp2819 said is true.

    The main draw back on the canonical module just to pre warn you is that once you specify a url link, you cannot have it used again for something different. Instead it will place a 3 digit number at the end.

    example if you want http://www.yourdomain.com/offer to be one product, but then next month want it to be related to another product - if you type http://www.yourdomain.com/offer it will redirect to http://www.yourdomain.com/offer-542
