Google Web Master Tools Shows Lots Of Duplicate Title Tags Because.... Rate Topic   - - - - -

Google Web Master Tools shows lots of duplicate title tags (and duplicate meta descriptions) because there are two versions(?) of every page/link almost - with the only difference being .html at the end of the link.

How do I go about correcting this?

No they've never been changed since the day we started.  However, I do think in the long run, getting rid of these .html links is for the best.

Made a thread on the Google Webmaster Forums as per Johns advice.

How would these pages of been created by CS Cart?  Obviously I've only created one instance manually.  Somewhere, a second page has automatically been created.  It seems to be something CS Cart used to do, but now doesn't as only products created before a certain date (I can't pin the date down exactly) and therefore possibly a certain update?

Example - Earpods have been on the site since inception. 
 

https://www.digitals...k/earpods.html  <---- original page we created.

https://www.digitalsave.co.uk/earpods<------ redirect CS Cart created

-----------------------------------------------------------------

Doro 8040 was added a month or so ago

https://www.digitals...doro-8040.html   <------ Page I created, goes to product page
https://www.digitals...co.uk/doro-8040<---------- .404 

Whats the reason for this?

I'm not sure when it changed but at one time CSC's default used to be .html and now it is just /.

have you tried to insert canonical tag to every main pages ? My website has showed alot of duplicate too, but it put canonical on top of the page and it's gone.
