    Duplicate issues


    Hi there

    My site is hosted n joomla and whenever i check WMT,i get notifications for duplicate titles and MDs. Actually these pages are auto created and the URLs are also not valid. How can in block these URLS using robots?.

    this is an example : applicom.net/shoretel/23-products/224-webs

    in which upto "shoretel" the url is valid and remaining, i don't know from where it came. please help

    You could exclude them using robots.txt or robots metatags. However, why not address the root cause? Auto created duplicate pages seems like something you shouldn't want (and sounds kind of scary:-)). Can't you fix that first?

    hi thanks for the reply..

    when i look for the particular URL in Joomla admin,.it won't show. actually, these URLs come with a mix of contents-like meta of one url,content of another,title of a different one.so there lies the problem.
