I received a warning saying that internal and external links are sending traffic to mysite.com and mysite.com/index.php

The advice from Google is this:

 

"In the Default page field, enter the default page for this domain. This is the page that loads when a user enters only the domain of your site into their address bar. For example, if www.example.com loads your index.html web page, enter index.html in this field."

All of my directories are linked to the directory and not the index file, and if you type the domain into a URL Bar my site does NOT show the index.php - so, am I correct in just entering 'index.php'?

Thanks!

I'm not positive, but it seems to me that it should be whatever shows in the address bar, aka www.yourdomain.com presuming you're not redirecting to a different URL.

 

Also, just noticed from your image that it's optional, so probably best to leave it out unless you are showing some other URL than the root.

I think it is better to mention it because that is recommended by Google...

thanks...

If anyone else can chime in that would be appreciated. I'm going to keep the index.php as screenshot and I'll let ya'll know what happens...

"Nanny [Google] knows best eh!

 

Probably some 'well meaning' dipstick has planted a link somewhere and added the 'index.php' just for good measure.

 

You can use .htaccess to get rid of the <cough>'problem'</cough> using %THE_REQUEST% in a conditional (RewriteCond ) rule
