URLs beginning with /index.php? creating duplicate content??

Post by stephm » Mon Jul 15, 2013 5:48 pm

I am VERY confused. SEOmoz is telling me that I have a bunch of duplicate content/duplicate titles. I only ever use URLs that I have created in the menu manager. But I know that other URLs exist such as:

http://www.howlatthemoon.com/component/ ... ?formId=72
http://www.howlatthemoon.com/win-a-party

How can I make these noindex but still have the correct form indexed? Can I remove these long URLs completely?

Also, forms that I've deleted still have URLs:

http://www.howlatthemoon.com/index.php? ... emid=99999
