    Duplicate content = the same content on more than one page of your website

    I have seen tons of e-commerce sites with duplicate content on every page.

    Example: shoesniper dot com

    They earn 10k per month and all there product pages have the same 500 word article just replacing the product name on every page

    You got it wrong ! Duplicate content issue is one of the headache in e-commerce site. To avoid this people are using rel=canonical.

    If they're doing it right they're using rel="canonical" or else setting those pages to not be indexed. But who knows.. That site has essentially no links.
