Google indexes strange urls from my site

Post by rimvydukas » Fri Aug 03, 2018 11:45 am

Hi,

I need some advice. I have SEO friendly urls enabled in my site configuration. But when I create blog posts Google is somehow able to index post with the following url:

/?view=article&id=28:susipazinkite-su-sapiegu-parko-rekonstrukcijos-maketu

What am I doing wrong and how can I fix this?

And most strange thing is that I don't see that google bot tried to access such an url:/

Try to recheck your permalinks structure enabled in your configuration

Is there any specific way to recheck this? Could you be more specific?

This article, which is in blog layout has alias. Is is accessible via the following link:

/renginiai-antakalnyje/susipazinkite-su-sapiegu-parko-rekonstrukcijos-maketu

but it is also accessible via the link I mentioned earlier:

/?view=article&id=28:susipazinkite-su-sapiegu-parko-rekonstrukcijos-maketu

It is shown slightly different, without published date and category and I have no clue how google was able to find such a link:/

That looks like a preview page URL? It might be worth editing your robots.txt to exclude pages featuring "view=article" from being indexed by Google.
