I have been checking the progress of my site indexing in Google, for some bizarre reason best known to itself, there is a very random URL indexed against my domain which doesn't exist.

http://www.example.net/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=35:is-it-possible-to-change-the-types-of-menu-entries&catid=31:general&Itemid=46

Is there a way I can forward the URL and query string to the home page as a 301 in my .htaccess file?

URL that google indexed ,should contain a part that doesn't exist in your site(or parameter in query string) !
Assume there is GGGGGG in that URL(and of course, that's Not in yours), so :

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI}   ^\/(.*)GGGGGG(.*)$
RewriteRule   (.*)   http://www.footballadvisor.net [R=301,L]

  • @Richard G you should replace GGGGGG with something you that's wrong! – undone Aug 10 '11 at 12:44
