We had 110,000 keywords that looked like this:
You will notice it has a space within the keyword part of the URL.
After noticing recently in WMT that Google had started to have problems with the spaces (although it had managed to index 70,000) we changed the format to:
i.e. replacing a space with a %20
Since doing this we have noticed in WMT that in just over 72 hours the indexed URLs has gone from 79,000 to 30,000!
Is Google treating the URLs as being different?
Can anyone help us?
