Google tools 404 problem

Postby francy587 » Thu Feb 21, 2008 1:42 pm

hi guys,

i have some problem with google for the advanced rewrite mod for phpbb3,

the rewrite mode work really fine, you can see it in www.scommettendo.net/forum but the problem is that google get 404 error in a lot of urls(478 on about 1000urls),i see it on webmaster tools and i don't' know how to resolv this.

for example, google get 404 for this: -http://www.scommettendo.net/forum/-vp10.html?amp;sid=704f0e8ce47eaeabee01b9834e4c6347

but i don't' understand what is -VP10 and where it came from??

another example is:
-http://www.scommettendo.net/forum/presentazioni-vf3.html?amp;sid=1effafaa847607b3e1b9c1231a08cab1

i think that problem is vf3, because i have i my urls just f3!!!

why google see vf3?????

anyway google have indexed a bit of my urls with vf3 and a bit just with f!!



guys can you help me??

i'm waiting from 1 month but nothing happend

how can i resolv?

p.s. sorry for my english!!!i know is not very good!!

Looks like you where using webmedic good old mod rewrite on phpBB2 before you converted.

That's why we warn that some redirecting will be necessary if your forum previously was using another mod rewrite when you install one of ours (or like it seems to be the case for you when you convert to phpBB3).

It may still be time to implement some redirecting, even though if it's been a month like this, chance are very little that you'll get PageRank back from the old links. Links posted with the old url type would then work too.

Please tell me more about your forum, did you really use another mod rewrite before you eventually converted to phpBB3 ?

Since your forum isn't old, it's no big deal, but you should still redirect the older url.

To do so, you need to add couple of rewriterules in your phpBB3's .htaccess, please post here both your new and old .htaccess and I'll tell you what to do ;)

By old one, I was meaning the one you previously where using, the one from the mod which was building rewritten urls with -vf, -vt and -vp.

Anyway, since I'm pretty sure about which one is it (webmedics one most likely), you just need to replace all (all occurrences of):

Code: Select all
-f


with

Code: Select all
-v?f


and all :

Code: Select all
-t


with :

Code: Select all
-v?t


in your current .htaccess.

And then add :
Code: Select all
# OLDER STYLE POST
RewriteRule ^[a-z0-9_-]*-vp([0-9]+)\.html$ viewtopic.php?p=$1 [QSA,L,NC]



It should be enough for the zero duplicate to do its job ;)
