I am new to SEO, I have generated sitemap for my website and kept robots file. When we searched my website in Google, it is showing different URLs with my domain name.

For example, my site URL is http://www.example.com/fr/home.

But in Google Search results it is showing: http://www.example.com/1C1lCqlPE6vtJKzq6aLBGntnVT5kk9jkKZ/M=.

I am not understanding how this URL is generated.

  • I doubt this is because of sharethis/Addthis widget, check this drupal.stackexchange.com/questions/84463/… , it happened to me but only in the website, not in Google result. check whether it is because of this widgets. – Bala Apr 25 '14 at 10:41
  • Is the search result URL in your question the complete URL or a rewritten one like this Firefox extension fixes? Also, the second URL should return a 404 not found error then, correct? – Tom Brossman Apr 25 '14 at 12:17
  • @TomBrossman, yes the URL I mentioned is Search Result URL. And if we invoke second URL then website returning 404 page not found. – SrinivasN Apr 25 '14 at 12:40

    It's going to be pretty much impossible to help without the real URLs. – John Mueller Apr 30 '14 at 7:53

Google doesn't generate any URLs for any website for search results. Maybe while developing an dynamic website, your link got generated and it got indexed in Google Search. You can disable this link, if you have Google Webmasters account.

You must have had the URL http://www.example.com/1C1lCqlPE6vtJKzq6aLBGntnVT5kk9jkKZ/M= at one time in the past. This URL got indexed in Google's system, and now you just have to wait until your site is re-indexed and the results will be updated.
