When I check this weblog info on Webmaster tools, I found one duplicate title tag and meta description. I’m surprised to know that it’s coming from the real title of a post and its Feedburner version.
Ousted Kyrgyz President leaves Kyrgyzstan
URL 1: /ousted-kyrgyz-president-leaves-kyrgyzstan/
URL 2: /ousted-kyrgyz-president-leaves-kyrgyzstan/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+fatihsyuhud+(Blogger+Indonesia+A.+Fatih+Syuhud)
1. Feedburner bad URL
The reason for this bad feedburner URL is Google has inserted utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign for Google Analytic tracking purpose. So, if you don’t like the idea, you can turn it off by login to your Feedburner account, Analyze -> uncheck “Track clicks as a traffic source in Google Analytics” and Save.
2. Duplicate Title Tag issue
There are two options to handle this issue. First, and the easiest, is to add rel=”canonical” in each and every post. Blogspot blog automatically has this functionality. For a self-hosted wordpress blog, Platinum SEO Pack and All in One SEO Pack plugins can handle this automatically as well.
- On the Webmaster Tools Dashboard, click the site you want.
- Under Site Configuration, click Settings.
- In the Parameter handling section, click Adjust parameter settings.
- For each parameter, select the option you want. (If no parameters are listed, Google did not find any when crawling your site. You can still add parameters yourself.)
How to setting the Parameter Handling
- At “Parameter” enter whatever parameter you want to ignore. In this case, the feedburner parameter above.
- Set the “Action” to Ignore
- Click Add Parameter. Save. And you’re done.
Which options is best between the two is up to you. What works best for you. As far as Im concerned, I use option #1.
- Disable Google Analytic stat in Feedburner
- Duplicate content issues
- Remove unused utm_source (some interesting comments, especially by Joost de Valk who advises not to remove it. Instead, ask some few codes or plugins to deal with it)
