Use canonical tag which specifies in the HTML header that the URL in question should be treated as a “copy” and names the canonical URL that all link authority and content metrics should flow back to.
Within the HTML header of the page loading on this URL http://www.vervesearch.com/index.php there would be a parameter like this:
- Code: Select all
<link rel=”canonical” href=”http://www.vervesearch.com/” />
This would “tell” the search engines that they should index the canonical URL specified in this tag and also weigh any link authority from the /index.php URL to the canonical URL.
Another solution for canonicalization problems is using 301 redirects. A 301 redirect is a permanent redirect from one URL to another, using a 301 redirect will carry over any link authority from one URL to another, even from a different domain
