|Homepage has PageRank, /index has nothing?|
Why does my domain name have a pagerank, but my index page have none?
My homepage has a Google PR4. Currently, the site has a redirect setup from the main domain to /index.aspx. When that redirect takes place, I see my pagerank change from 4 to NA.
Any ideas why this happens?
That happens because there are two different URLs and each URL has it's own PR figure.
Are you sure the redirect is a 301 redirect, and is not a 302 redirect?
The redirect should redirect TO the URL without the index filename in it.
The canonical URL for your root index page should be www.example.com/ only.
Sure, the filename inside the server is index.asp but the URL used 'out on the web' should not include the filename.
Additionally check both www and non-www. Do they both work? Does one redirect? Is it a 301 redirect?
