Duplicated links with com_akeeba path

Postby kostazs » Sun Aug 20, 2017 2:27 pm

Hello community,

I encountered this problem looking for my website in google search results. Apparently all materials are duplicated under links including com_akeeba after index.php.. if it makes any sense.

I'll give an example:
there is a material here service-mk.ru/services/14-восстановление-отверстий
and there is the same material here service-mk.ru/index.php/com_akeeba/services/14-восстановление-отверстий

I suppose the problem has something to do with Akeeba backup extension however searching the web didn't give any results. Any thoughts or recomendations on how to solve this are appreciated.

Mod. Note: Relocated the topic to the SEO Forum.

Akeeba is a backup extension. It shall not be listed in any Search Engine.

I recommend you disallow it in robots.txt.

Add this line to the robots.txt document

Code: Select all

Disallow: /com_akeeba/


and update the robots.txt in Google Search Console
