Duplicated content in rails

I’m having a problem related to duplicated content that I need to solve.

The problem is very simple, this url:

mysite/spain/sevilla/title/171

generates the same content like this one:

mysite/spain-Upssss/sevilla-Upssss/title-Upssss/171

The fact is that I’m finding the real content using:

Article.find_by_id(171)

It means that country/region/title are not being evaluated when
resolving the url, maybe this is good, but the problem is that google
has indexed
mysite/spain-Upssss/sevilla-Upssss/UserGeneratedTitle-Upssss/171
and the right url as well.

1)I know that a canonical tag could be a solution, but how could I
get/define the canonical href with the right url
(mysite/spain/sevilla/title/171)?

2)Do you know about a rails plugin/gem to handle such situations ?

I can not understand your problem But for
SEO purpose,
For customizing url containing Id

You can do

#in model
def to_param
“#{id}-#{permalink}”
end

controller

@product = Article.find(params[:id])
