url question

My customer wants duplicates of the home/landing page with a letter added at the end. So I duplicated the page and retitled with the letter. Example is letter v.
So this link does not work.

This one does.

Any suggestions or ideas?
Thanks John

Is this to differentiate results from various different ads or links placed in different locations on the Web? You can get the same effect without the Google getting mad at you for duplicate content by adding a querystring to your URL:

http://example.com?source=v
http://example.com?source=h

Those will both load the index.html page, but they will show up differently in your server logs so you can tell where the clicks came from.

It’s generally a really bad idea to have two different URLs load the same content. Google will cut your search engine results between the pages, rather than them both contributing to one pool of results.

You bring up a good point about Google that I had not thought of. Yes it is to measure different ads but print ads not web ads with each address in each ad.
So how would I add the querystring?

Well, it’s going to look ugly, but you just print it in the ad. Example Domain

But almost nobody will type the whole thing in. Another way to approach this (to get them to type the whole thing) is you have a special offer for each ad (or just say it’s special for each ad, it can be the same offer on all of them) and then you make N number of different folders in your site, one per ad, and inside each of those folders, an index page (index.html) that contains the details of that offer and links to the rest of your site. Each one could reference the name of the publication the ad was in (Welcome Vice Readers), since the URLs are different, and your visitors will have a compelling reason to type in more than just the base URL. You get your cool “short” URLs, since your folders have one-letter names: http://example.com/v is really http://example.com/v/index.html when the server expands the default index URL out behind the scenes.

Thanks for your help. Have to think on this a bit.
The query question was in regard to Freeway. But I think you answer that as well.
