Carpe diem on any duplicate content worries: we now support a format that allows you to publicly specify your preferred version of a URL. If your site has identical or vastly similar content that's accessible through multiple URLs, this format provides you with more control over the URL returned in search results. It also helps to make sure that properties such as link popularity are consolidated to your preferred version.

Hey,

It sounds great.

so that means we don't need to rewrite link of any webpage, isn't it?

One bonus, is that this makes getting around duplicate-content penalties with Google a straight forward process no matter whether an Apache, IIS, or some other type of HTTP server is in use.

Not in such a general sense.

Some types of rewrites will still be useful. Ones done for the sole purpose of getting around duplicate content penalties can most likely be stopped though. At least for Google.

Does this seem like something other search engines would pick up on ?
What would happen as far as other search engines are concerned if someone were to implement this, and drop their existing rewrite-based solution ?

This is great I'm glad that added that and it's going to be widely accepted across Google, Yahoo and MSN.

Although I will still be using rewrite for so pages as I agree with joebert there are some other useful things that can be done with it.
