Duplicated Meta Descriptions on Google Search

Postby iMilazzo » Tue Aug 22, 2017 2:38 pm

Hi guys, sorry my bad english!

I have this site: http://www.mundoimilazzo.com.

At Google Search Console I have the information (attached) that I have some duplicated meta descriptions.
The problem is: I've made the hack to remove the ID from articles and categories to show a more friendly URL for SEO purposes (I don't know why is so important to Joomla to show IDs on URLS on SEO mode).

Well, I have all my website working with this hack, the problem is that Google Search Console insist to show old urls (formed with IDs) and I have no idea where they are coming from. I've searched the entire website trying to find this old urls but I am unable to find them.

I am asking you to help to find where and how this old urls are. How to find them, how to kill them?

Thanks
Ivan

Hi,

What I heard Google Search Console takes time to update the data. Maybe if you give it some time Google will pick up and refresh your website data.
Have you also updated your sitemap and uploaded it?

Thank you @Pharman !!

There is a field at Google Console showing "when" this data was updated and it shows a few days ago.
Everytime I send a sitemap.xml or I re-submit a page I get duplicated pages and I have no idea where this links came.

Thanks
Ivan
