Google Duplicate Pages
« on: April 11, 2009, 02:12:32 PM »

Just launched my oscommerce website which has the sitemap generator on it

Within about a week Google reported duplicate Meta tabs for urls : -


Spent about a week on various forums trying to fix this issue without success.

This morning I suddenly wondered if there was a problem with my sitemap so I checked the .xml file and found

loc>http://localhost/</loc>   and
<loc>http://localhost/</loc>  as 2 seperate urls

What do I need to do to resolve this ?

I wondered if it was as simple as adding the 2nd url to my exclude list but I obviously dont want my home page excluded from Google.

Thanks ... Dennis

in case if that's the same page, you can exclude index.php from sitemap and keep only one.
