    index.html indexed in google


    I found that my index.html is indexed in google.
    Well my website.com is indexed and also website.com/index.html
    This is duplicate content?
    Google webmaster tools has not warned me about duplicate..

    What can I do? Redirect index.html to website.com?

    Yes that is an option, and is often used.

    You can also apply the rel=canonical tag so that the primary URL is identified.

    That is an option, but usually when you have index.html it means there is a link in your site pointing to it.
    Delete the link and the index.html should disappear.
