SEO Virante test failures on 3.1.1 site

Post by gallagtj » Mon Jul 22, 2013 7:46 pm

My site fails one of the Virante testing tool http://www.virante.org/seo-tools/duplicate-content

I am using the standard Joomla .htaccess with one modification to fix a www/non www test failure which I found on teh internet.

rewritecond %{http_host} ^ring4me.co.uk [nc]
rewriterule ^(.*)$ http://www.ring4me.co.uk/$1 [r=301,nc]

I still have a default page check failure
You have not standardized your default pages meaning the following versions of your url return a 200/OK Header, which may cause duplicate content issues. The following extensions work:
http://www.ring4me.co.uk/index.php
http://www.ring4me.co.uk/

I do not know what to add or change in the joomla .htaccess to get this test to pass.

I have the same problem on other sites as well so I would like to know what to put in the .htaccess file to fix.

Can anybody please explain what to add change or delete from the standard Joomla file.

Thanks
Gally :(
