Duplicate entries for URLs
« on: May 11, 2010, 04:47:26 PM »
My site is in PHP and our web developer just changed my articles section to create search engine friendly URLs that include the article title rather than just the article id value.  I created a new site map after it was done and I am now seeing duplicate entries in the XML for the same article title but with the wrong article id appended.  For example:

<loc>http://www.parentainment.com/article/how-to-screen-a-babysitter-and-protect-your-peace-of-mind-97</loc>  (This is actually the correct URL).

Any ideas where this problem is occurring?  It is because of the code on my site or the way the sitemap is being generated?

Any help would be much appreciated!

it means that somewhere on your site you have links to all these URLs, you should correct that.
