ASP 1.0 - Rewriting URL's
Hey, I am Vaishali - software Developer
This problem is for site developed in Asp. let say abc(dot)com
Now prob is: this particular site can be open by 5 different URL's
Now as per search engine rules. It is considered as 5 different sites.
It is hosted in window server, Microsoft-IIS/6.0.
I have to redirect all these URL's into one, "http://www(dot)abc(dot)com"
There is a file web config in windows server where we write rules for redirections or rewriting. These rules are also named as 301 redirects.
This task is not a problem if it is apache server but it is windows server.
Now I need a solution of this problem that how do I redirect all these URL"s into one.
I find some solution, like :
1. there is a code (<httpRedirect enabled="true" destination="http://www(dot)abc(dot)com" httpResponseStatus="Permanent" />), it is used for redirection purpose but It is not working in windows server.
2. there is another code (<link rel="canonical" href="http://www(dot)abc(dot)com>), this particular code can be placed in home page of site. It will not redirect other URl's but search engine will put all links to the defined url in href tag.
3. I also want to know about masking of URl's. It is a technique through which dirty Urls can mask into good url,s
for eg: http://www(dot)abc(dot)com/xyz_network.php?Module=quote is consider as dirty Url because search engine will not consider "?module=quote" etc. Now through masking we can redirect this particular Url into good one like http://www(dot)abc(dot)com/find_quotes, now it is search engine friendly urls which is easily readable.
Please some one help me to sort these issues . I be higly grateful
Waiting for your fast response.
