Hi,

In my website, when I type

http://www.mysite.com/article-1
http://www.mysite.com/articleidnumber
http://www.mysite.com/blablabla/articleidnumber

All three links are showing same page, but I don't understand how the third one working even you can write whatever you want insted of blablabla.

Can anyone please help me to understand this issue?

Thanks in advance...

P.S.: http://www.mysite.com/blablabla/ is not working for itself.

Well i don't know the main reason but i think it is happening because you are using right keyword but the style of writing is different so Google has cowled this URL so your page is opening easily.

Hi Persmash,

I have the same issue and have reported in Joomla 3 Administration Box but there still no suggestion. Have you solved your website problem?

Check what your canonical URL is ... perhaps it is all the same, but the actual address is the canonical URL. This way it is not duplicate content and the "actual" URL is the canonical.

I think you will find this is due to this issue that is raised as a ticket in Joomla

http://joomlacode.org/gf/project/joomla ... m_id=29428

I spent a long time with the exact same problem. Also be aware that Google may well index lots of pages that don't exist due to this problem, it did for our site.

Also check your site index produced by joomla as I found all kinds of URLs in there too.

There is no fix for this that I can find at the moment so we are trying a combination of blocking urls in the robots.txt and producing our own site.xml.

There is another thread about this here

http://forum.joomla.org/viewtopic.php?f=618&t=699954

To me this seems a major issue and certainly caused me a lot of problems but also took a long time to find anything out about it.
