SEO and Google Analytics and index.php

Post by ptrouw » Mon Oct 24, 2022 9:28 am

Hi,
In the global configuration, I have an SEO-friendly URL and URL rewriting, and no suffix. I have a multi-lingual website so, / is English and I also have /de and /nl.
If I look at the Google Analytics stats it shows me /index.php and / as a result pages. Both are the root folder of the English language.
How can I get rite of this /index.php? Should I redirect this in htaccess?

Hi,

is it already solved?

You have renamed htacces.txt to .htaccess?

And outside of Google, when you go to your site, the index.php isn't there?

Groeten Ron :)

Hi Ron, no not solved. Yes, I have renamed htaccess, and yes normally the index.php is not showing. It is only listed in Google Analytics.

Try to do 301 from all index.php pages to the main one.
