Default Duplicate Titles and CDSEO Help

Can anyone help with a small problem that we have just picked up with Google Webmaster tools.

Google is saying we have duplicate Title tags on thousands of pages because of the following issue.

https://www.website.com/1mm-rose-gold-plated-hinged-segment-ring-18-gauger.html

https://www.website.com/product.php?productid=20475&cat=285&page=2


It sees the urls as two different entries .

We are also getting Duplicate Meta Descriptions warnings because of

https://www.website.com/home.php?cat=298&sort=orderby&sort_direction=0&obj ects_per_page=120
https://www.website.com/home.php?cat=298&sort=orderby&sort_direction=0&obj ects_per_page=150
https://www.website.com/home.php?cat=298&sort=orderby&sort_direction=0&obj ects_per_page=240
https://www.website.com/home.php?cat=298&sort=orderby&sort_direction=0&obj ects_per_page=90
https://www.website.com/piercing-retainers/

Is there a way to suppress this also?


We are using CDSEO if that makes any difference.

Is there a way to suppress the indexing of the product.php entry?

Thanks

I'd use the robots.txt files and disallow the crawling of non-seo friendly urls.

e.g.

Disallow: /product.php*
Disallow: /home.php?cat=*

Best Regards
