Title and Description Duplicated

Post by gred81 » Sun Aug 12, 2018 10:10 am

Hello to all. Forgive my English. I am writing to you, because I have been searching for a lot of news about it, but I did not find all the information necessary to solve the problem.

I have a site in Joomla, version 3.8. I activated the mod_rewrite and installed "Easy Frontend Seo".

In Search Console, I find many duplicate urls in the "Html enhancements" section.

When I go to open, I find a lot of url starting with /? Id = xx or with / component / content / article /.

If I put in robots.txt Disallow: / component / content / article / * can I feel comfortable? Thank you

I think your links found in Google console were 404 links. The correct way would use .htaccess although you’ll need some apache knowledge to do it that way.

The other way is to build your own custom 404 page and then put inside that page a link a user can click to take them to the home page or you can use some javascript to navigate to the home page after that page renders or you can use PHP's header(‘Location: myhomepage(dot)com‘);

Please check your URL and description on your website and put the right URL and description. And most important to our website please check per week your website URL cache.

It could be the extension you're using. I've used "Tag Meta" in the past to be able to create custom titles and descriptions and have never had URL issues so perhaps look into that one or a similar one.
