Menu indexing only

Post by Neuronaut » Tue Apr 23, 2013 8:51 am

After plenty work i got anything back from google when i search my site.

My site has a total of 60 pages while 3 of them are open public and the rest is with registered access.
I wrote a sitemap.xml, googlebot accepted it, reported that i submit 9 urls (thats correct for 3 pages in 3 languages) and indexed 1 of it ???.

When i search in google i get a lot of urls found which are direkt links to articels with cryptic numbers (articles id). Sure all i want is to index my menu structures urls. Any idea how to reach that ?. My robots.txt is mainly standard joomla 3.

Thanks for any help

These urls are duplicates of other articles right? On my Joomla 2.5 site i'm using a tool to redirect the duplicate urls.
