Duplicate URL
« on: July 29, 2009, 02:54:16 PM »
Hi,

I created my sitemap with the generator yesterday and then submitted it to google through webmaster tools.

It has been picked up by google but it is now saying that i have duplicate URLs.

It states This URL is a duplicate of another URL in the sitemap. Please remove it and resubmit.

It says the url is www.mydomain.co.uk/index.html.

Is this because I have www.mydomain.co.uk/ and www.mydomain.co.uk/index.html with the same content?

If this is the case does anyone know how I can relove this?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks for your help
OD

Hello,

please try to ceate robots.txt file in domain root with:
Code: [Select]
User-agent: *
Disallow: /index.html

and then recreate sitemap. That will remove duplicate entry from sitemap.
