The page contains unnecessary redirects. VS The page contains multiple canonical formats. RRS feed

    You are doing the right thing having the redirect.what the first violation is trying to tell you is that there are 18 pages that are linking directly to the index.html that should in the ideal world link directly to "/" to save your customers and search engines the redirection.

    Then why do I still get 2 violations when using the redirect?

    OK, I am using the redirect correctly but I am still getting one violation.

    The link to "http://www.mysite.com/index.html" has resulted in HTTP redirection to "http://www.mysite.com/".

    What you need to do is figure out why Index.HTML is in the results in the first place. Since your canonical form is / then it shouldn't be there since index.html should be an implementation detail no one extermally needs to know and certainly you do not want to expose. So use a new query to find index.HTML in the results, open the details dialog and see in the Links tab who is linking to it and fix that page to link to /.
