Have you ever found like 3 to 4 different versions of your website/blog's homepage URL with the same content on Google?
If you have then that sounds really nasty!
So what can you do to fix this?
Let's jump straight into it,now the first thing that you will want to do is to make changes to your own site in order to rectify the issue.
You will want to take a look at your site and figure out why,this issue has come about in the first place and rectify it.
Now to rectify you would firstly want to take a look at your on page optimization,now of course if you got something silly going on like /homepage or /home which i have seen in the past you will probably want to get away from there and move towards /index.php or /HTML.
Now of course once you have set that problem the next thing that you want to do is set what is known as a 301 Direct within your HT access file.
Now given that your site has been indexed within Google with 4 different URL's what you will want to do is take every single instance of those URL's and set a 301 redirect within your own HT access file as i have just said before and be sure to redirect those instances back to the correct location,that is your preffered URL.
Now a 301 redirect will essentially force anyone that comes in on a different URL on a desired location.
Noe in addition to this you will want to set the preferred domain within the webmaster tools.You will essentially need to add the Dub Dub Dub version and the non dub dub version,set your preferred domain and then finally remove the unwanted domain.
Just be sure that when you do this that the preferred domain is set within webmaster tools is the same domain that you specify within your 301 redirect!
Lastly you will want to test,so given that you have got 4 different URL's of your homepage indexed within Google,what you should do is copy and paste those into the address bar press ENTER and make sure that you are always redirected regardless of what you have type in back to your preferred domain.
Now once you have done this,this will tidy everything up but mot importantly it will prevent any sort of duplicate issues from arising and in addition to that it will also ensure that all of your link equity is pointing to the correct URL which is really important for building the strength of your domain!
Conclusion So this is what you should do get rid of multiple instances of your website in Google! OK guys so that is it for this article thank you so much for reading,take care
