Highly likely it will be resolved from google webmaster tools, There might be a setting in regard with that there.

@vjcyber1: yes, @Webdongle asks a good question. Why, indeed, does this seem to matter to you?

Also, in another topic that you created (which became instant spam bait for all those "SEO experts" who have nothing better than to waste everyone's time), you asked this question:

If i submit with www and without www and with http and with https will it duplicate my content or not?
In response to this question, I asked you "What do you think? Please give us your reasons."

After asking this question we never saw any further input from you to that discussion. Instead you have created a new topic that is, essentially, a continuation of your earlier topic. Perhaps you might like to ask the moderators to close your other topic because you seem to have lost interest in it. ???

And, I imagine that this topic will simply be another repeat of what happened earlier resulting in us having to report all that useless, meaningless "SEO expert" rubbish that spammers will flood it with. Thanks for nothing! >:(

I already given answer to this post on the same topic what i think .

Two questions are very different. First question was for submitting the website to google search console and impact of submitting with https:// and with http:// and its impact on SEO and to know weather it will impact SEO by duplicating the content or not?

This question is more related to joomla that why for one link google is crawling three links for same content and search console is showing clear duplicate description and title tag duplication.


I have never seen any setting in search console regarding solution of this problem only possibility is remove the link and cache but after some time it re crawl same link so permanent solution is required.



Any ways i found the solution by limiting the crawler to onlysite map created by Jsitemap pro and then changes in robot.txt


User-agent: *
Allow: *Your sitemap URL*
Disallow: /administrator/
Disallow: /bin/
Disallow: /cache/
Disallow: /cli/
Disallow: /component/k2/itemlist/tag/
Disallow: /component/
Disallow: /images/
Disallow: /component/tags*
Disallow: /components/
Disallow: /includes/
Disallow: /installation/
Disallow: /language/
Disallow: /layouts/
Disallow: /libraries/
Disallow: /logs/
Disallow: /tmp/
Disallow: /*%
Disallow: /?start
Disallow: /?
Disallow: /index.php?
Disallow: /*?
Disallow: /index.php*?
Disallow: /item
Disallow: /item/



I started using joomla forum when joomla was 1.5 and this forum was helpful for creating solutions but now seems like moderators are wasting time in search of spammers and asking strange questions. If i know answers why i post here? So better moderators give time on solutions for problem if they can!

Why is seo important to you? Is your site likely to be on the first result page with various common searches?

Because your answer will hilight that search engine rankings are snake oil. e.g. When people search for trainers there are an infinite number of phrases they can use and all will bring up different results. People usually only click the links to well known names. Time is far better spent building up the brand name rather than competing (against well known brand names) for top search results.
