|A Few Rewrite Questions|
Correcting spaces, duplicates. And initiate big SEO change?
| 11:41 am on Feb 21, 2013 (gmt 0)|
I have two duplicate issues in WMT. One is due to spaces the other due to a single apostrophe.
Space, %20, %25%20, +
The site displays info on sportspersons. URLs for each sportsperson page is like this:
there are duplicates for
Which should I be using, and how can I rewrite it?
SQL injection is often targetted on the FAQ section:
/faq/index.php?id=200' and ' union .....
This is blocked but in the generated sitemap this is recorded:
which will duplicate with the genuine request:
How do I remove the single apostrophe from the end? Note that this only needs to happen in the /faq/ directory.
I appreciate that when setting up the site I could have made it more SEO friendly by not using get vars in the string. Would it now be too late to rewrite these:
In total there are over 100,000 names. Would implimenting this change be too much for
a) the search engines - would 100,000 301s cause a penalty?
b) the server - what is the impact on performance?

The PHP script needs to return 404 status for all requests that were rewritten to it, but for which it cannot issue a redirect.

I implemented the changes couple of weeks ago. So far it is going well.
Not hit a penalty (yet ~~ ) Google crawls have trippled, site visits are up.
There is a surge in duplicate title tags but I presume this will clear as the 301s are filtered through.
Bing is having an issue with a small handful of the pages in that it doesn't find the correct sport but that's not worth bothering with.
Thanks to all who helped me with this.
