Will having my urls like this pen me for duplicate content in google or other main search engines?

I have 2 different variations of these pages like below:

http://www.legitjordanshoes.com/Buy-Jor ... 378037-010
Above is the direct product URL, but I realize if I go from the Home page and click the "JORDAN SHOES" category at the top menu bar and then click the product via that page, it actually loads the product under a different URL format seen below:
http://www.legitjordanshoes.com/authent ... 378037-010

As you can see above this one page on my website has 2 different URL Variations. I assume google would flag my website for duplicate content because of this but I'm not sure.

Each of my products and various other pages on my website also have many variations of the URL's.

Can someone let me know?


Bless

The way opencart is designed, you can add SEO tags, META tags, and Key Word descriptions for any page in your shop, so if you enter the information for those correctly on all of your shop pages, then your shop has many chances of being returned in searches such as yahoo and google.

Then the more items you list and sell, the greater the chances are for your online shop to be found in searches.

It looks like you only have one domain name for your shop, so it shouldn't be counted for duplicate content.

When they talk about duplicate content, I think what they are referring to is when you have 50 domain names all point to the same exact domain name. I'm not exactly sure though.

Yup, I think you will be penalised.

Explain the problem, because I don't see one.

If you have duplicate content you will be penalised. The mentioned plugin eradicates this duplicate content issue where it creates more than one URL to the same product
