Indexed wrong URL
« on: January 07, 2011, 02:01:17 AM »
Hi, I have problem to use the standalone xml sitemaps recently (it were fine before). Our Website has many URLS in this format:

    http://<domain name>/categories.php?category=Bamboo&topcat1=Bamboo&subvar5=WOMEN&subvar5v=1

But they look like below in the sitemap.xml after crawling -- category value disappeared! :

    http://<domain name>/categories.php?category=&topcat1=Bamboo&subvar5=WOMEN&subvar5v=1

Thereby these URLs were not further crawled and number of indexed URLs in sitemap.xml has greatly reduced.

However, these URLs were indexed correctly when I use the online free version.

I appreciate your help and comment

I got "You are not allowed to send personal messages." when I tried to send you PM. I have sent you an email ([external links are visible to admins only]) instead.

Thank you so much

Hello,

you have incorrect canonical meta tags on your pages, for instance on http://www.domain.com/categories.php?category=Dot&topcat4=Dot&subvar5=WOMEN&subvar5v=1 page it's set to:
<link rel="canonical" href="http://www.domain.com/categories.php" />

You should either correct your canocical tags (which is better), or disable canonical urls support in generator configuration.
