Having multi duplicate description and title tags

Postby tracy14 » Thu Sep 06, 2012 2:00 pm

:geek:
good morning, I was wondering if any could help me on a problem I have with google. In webmaster I keep getting duplicate meta description and duplicate title tags.
It seems to come from a component I put in call freestyle. This is used for customer comments about work my company does.
I contacted the makers of freestyle and they has a look at things and asked if I had a site map running. They figure this could be cause from a site map making these up.
Have a look at the attachment and you will see that the mornal url comes up on the ones I have opened in webmaster but down below those I have ones that have things like:
http://www.h2owest.ca/know-your-water/waste-water-organics.html "normal link or url"
http://www.h2owest.ca/know-your-water/waste-water-organics.html?task=deletecomment&commentid=XXCIDXX&ident=XXXIDXX&published=XXPXX ( these are what keep showing up)
http://www.h2owest.ca/know-your-water/waste-water-organics.html?task=deletecomment&commentid=XXCIDXX (ones like this keep showing up)

Are these cause from site map and how can I fix it if they are.

Thanx a million if someone has an answer.
Cause I am lost.

Hi,

No, that is not because of Xmap or any other sitemap, Google not only index the urls provided by Xmap, but it also work as a spider following any link that it finds on your pages, so, if your commenting system has a link on the page with the url:
http://www.h2owest.ca/know-your-water/waste-water-organics.html?task=deletecomment&commentid=XXCIDXX&ident=XXXIDXX&published=XXPXX

Google will follow and index that page, but Xmap isn't sending that to Google, you can check at your XML sitemap and see what URLs are in there.

Regards,

Guillermo

these come up as duplicate listings in the google html listings. If I leave these in will it affect my search rankings or anything with google.

Thanx a million for getting back to me.

Also is there anything I can do to cure this in my site if it does affect anything to do with google.

Hi, I'm not sure if it will affect your rating and I don't know either how is Google getting to those URLs so I don't know how you can fix that.

If you ask me, I would say that your commenting system is making somehow those URLs available to Google (and probably other spiders) when it shouldn't.
