Related topics links incorrect

Post by rick »

If you look at the url for the posts that show as related topics, you'll notice they are not formatted correctly. They do not have the proper URL. They do appear to redirect appropriately, but it would probably be better for SEO to have the correct URL and not require a redirect.

Any suggestions on a fix?

Hello
thanks for your reply, you are speaking about which related topic? in here (phpbb-seo.org/community/) or some where else ?

If you go to this thread:

ultimate-seo-friendly-url/discuss-ultim ... e-t11.html

And you look at the relayed topics at the bottom, you will see the first one has the following url:

topic13.html

And it should be:

dynamic-meta-tags/discuss-dynamic-meta- ... e-t13.html

The first url does redirect to the correct url, but that is an unnecessary redirect that isn't the best for SEO.

www.phpbb-seo.org/community/topic13.html

redirects to the correct url:

www.phpbb-seo.org/community/dynamic-met ... e-t13.html

but that is an unnecessary redirect that isn't the best for SEO

Whenever you do a 301 redirect, you lose pagerank, which is critical to Google SEO. The related links at the end of the posts should be the canonical URL, not one that redirects to the canonical URL.
