    I've got a category on a site that re-publishes Amazon product info when deals happen. The content is 100% duplicate, but I'm not trying to rank for it, its all about user experience. Anyways, I've got each page like this marked as
    Code:
    <meta name="robots" content="noindex,nofollow">
    Is that good enough, or should I block it completely? Its still showing up on my XML sitemap which is why I was wondering.

    No index will tell google not to crawl it and to remove it from the index. Therefore, if you have duplicate content you will be ok.
