Global Redirect

Drupal allows URL aliases for pages on your site. Nevertheless the old path will not be removed by Drupal which means that now there are two urls pointing to the same page. There is a good chance that Search Engines will consider your site to host duplicate content if there is such an occurrence and your site can be sandboxed. The Global Redirect module provides a solution to this scenario by redirecting all the existing URLs to the correct URL before being retrieved.

Most webmasters do not realize this, but a lot of the content on lot of websites can be accessed from multiple URLs. A simple example would be where and leads to the same page. This is a fatal mistake in Search Engine Optimization and search engines penalize you for duplicate content. The correct configuration would be where the above two urls will lead you to the same page but will redirect you to with a 301 (Moved permanently) status which will not result in search engines penalizing the page. It is very easy to configure 301 redirects using Apache .htaccess file and the process is the same for a Drupal installation also.

I'm trying to make show as, and I'm running into difficulties. I'm on Apache 2.0 and using the following lines in my httpd.conf file: RewriteEngine on RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^xxxxxxxxxx\.com$ [NC] RewriteRule ^(.*)$$1 [L,R=301] When I go to, I get (as expected). However, when I go to (it's a Drupal site), I get a 404 thrown and the URL changes to Same thing with Any suggestions? I want to run without Drupal's .htaccess file (instead incorporating these calls into my httpd.conf file). webmaster access_time 14 Jul 2020 - 22:11 In reply to Rewrite including filesystem path by Anonymous (not verified) I think the problem is with the base path which results in the redirection to /var/www/ part. The best approach I would think is to start with drupal htaccess and then strip out parts and move to httpd SNVC (not verified) access_time 14 Jul 2020 - 22:11 This is definitely a good guide.
