    What should I do here?

    My site has about 15 products all with the same pattern. At the same time, each product has many patterns. There are only so many ways I can describe the patterns and products.

    I see no way around having a lot of duplicate content unless I no index which may not be bad, as long as my categories rank. I don't think many would be searching for random patterns. Any ideas?

    Google actually has gone on record many times to state there is no penalty for duplicate content when it is not malicious or deceptive in nature. If your descriptions are at least somewhat unique and they have their own URL, you should be fine. Just make sure you add variations not just to the product page, but also the page title, heading and metas.

    THAT SAID...

    ...The natural result of this is that Google might not know which page to rank in search results. If they are pretty similar - you may end up competing with yourself in rankings. This is an indirect impact, though, and not one of Google coming after you.

    I'm such an idiot. Never really dealt with duplicate content. I completely forgot its not a penalty and they will just disregard.

    Thanks.
