I made a complete rewrite of a webpage. The previous version was made in PHP and the whole URL scheme was like this:
The new webpage is just a couple
.html files (that's a static webpage). This means that any query of form
will render the same
index.html content. This makes Google punish me for content duplication.
I uploaded a sitemap which does not contain these urls before the webpage was indexed but it didn't prevent Google from indexing those old garbage.
I noticed that in the Google webmaster console, in the URL parameters section there is a rule matching
p. Unfortunately, the console gives me no way of deleting it.
What's the best thing I could do in this situation?
