  • can anyone help

    I cant post in seo forum but will try here
    Currently in WMT Google is showing
    mysite.com/page/ and
    mysite.com/page/?no_redirect=true

    How can i prevent this, is it not duplicate content?

    Maybe solved, the mysite.com/page/?no_redirect=true

    Actually if i go to that page it has a link rel="canonical" href="mysite.com/page/
    So wont be seen as duplicate

    Re: can anyone help

    One way you can tell Google multiple URLs that deliver the same page originate from one source is to use Canonical URLs. You can find more information here: https://support.google.com/webmaster...r/139066?hl=en. For example, on https://www.eukhost.com/index.php, our Canonical URL is: <link rel="canonical" href="https://www.eukhost.com/">. This is especially useful for e-commerce stores that may use multiple URL structures to deliver the same page - perhaps during promotions or marketing campaigns. The article I've linked to also discusses URL parameters (example.php?param=value) and how you can handle them, too.

    If your website uses HTML 4.01 or HTML 5, use the following Canonical tag (change the href url)

    Code:
    <link rel="canonical" href="https://www.example.com">
    If your website uses XHTML 1.0/1.1, use the following Canonical tag (change the href url)

    Code:
    <link rel="canonical" href="https://www.example.com" />

        OK, that's good. Is there a date listed in Webmaster Tools as to when Googlebots first noticed the two URLs you mention in your original post?

          Yes i think the 8/12/2014 but i have deleted them so can't be 100% sure, i do have 404 files currently on that date although pages are definitely there. That however may be due to the dedicated ip given. Not sure if all are related or not

          PLEASE NOTE

          If i add ?no_redirect=true to any of my sites though on any server say mysite.com/apage/?no_redirect=true it gives exact copy of that page
          Odd not come across this before?
          Even on html pages not WP sites.
          Strange

          Give it a go

              Hi Paul,

              This is normal behaviour and all websites behave the same. You are still requesting the server to deliver the same page in both scenarios, so that's why it provides you with an exact copy of the same page. https://www.example.com/index.php and https://www.example.com/index.php?param=value are still requesting index.php. The difference is the extra parameters at the end of the second URL which is also sent to the server. A forum, for example, may use the parameters it is given at the end of a URL string to perform certain actions. For example, https://www.example.com/forums/index.php?do=login might show the login page on someone's forum. This is one of the reasons Google treats example.php and example.php?param=value as two separate pages unless a Canonical URL is specified.

              One of the possible reasons the "no_redirect" parameter was found by Google might be a particular client-side or server-side script you use on your website which relies on it to prevent a redirection from taking place in certain circumstances.

                Thanks Ben. I must admit i have never seen this in WMT before but a first for everything i guess.
                Time to go insure i have canonical set on every page
