i read on Google SEO REPORT CARD that for search engines this page:
is a different page than this one:
http://www.domain.com/somepath/ (note the final slash '
Well if this is true i have few questions:
A) Is this true also for home page path i.e.
I mean I already redirect 301
http://www.domain.com, but how do I redirect also
http://www.domain.com/ (with final slash) ???
Actually Apache server or my browser client (don't know who is doing this) seem to already do this sort of redirect becasue if I insert
http://www.domain.com in browser bar it always auto adds the final slash making it
So I'm confused, do I need to do anything?
B) Since I still use file extensions, I was not so concerned about redirecting
domain.com/somepath/ because all pages in my sites are in the form of
But I noticed anyway a strange thing that is confusing me. If I enter as URL
somepath/page.htm the server returns the same page of
somepath/page.htm/ (with final slash) instead of an error.
I think it's normal because if you look for http://www.php.net/docs.php it returns the same page of http://www.php.net/docs.php/ (final slash), but are these then considered TWO different pages for search engines???
Do I have then to adjust again .htacess in order to redirect 301 each URL with final slash to the same url without the final slash???
