Hi, Google shows my URL in search results like this:


If I send new crawling, then some weeks the URL will be shown fine (without /index). But then it shows URL with /index again?

How can I solve that?

/index and your site root page serve the same content, which is not favoured well by most search engines. You probably want to redirect all /index requests to your site root.

Here is the re-write rule:

RewriteEngine On

RewriteRule ^index$ /$1 [R=301,NC,L]

Thank you IntrigU. I used another code, that works:

RedirectMatch /index$ https://xxxxx.xxx

Is yours better for search engines?
