By default, pages added to your website on the LiveEdit platform include /pages in their url convention. For example, if I create a Contact page on mysite.com, its url will be mysite.com/pages/contact. These pages are also served at the url without the /pages. Using the contact page example, note that mysite.com/contact will display the same page.


Similarly, services added to your website on the LiveEdit platform include /service in the url convention. For example, if I add a Blog to mysite.com, its url will be mysite.com/service/blog. This service is also served at the url without the /service. Using the blog example, note that mysite.com/blog will display the same page.


Site owners using tracking software such as Google Analytics have noted that having multiple url versions of the same page may create a duplicate content concern, as these urls can be indexed separately and traffic to them counted independently. The following instructions will allow you to redirect all /pages and /service versions of your site pages to the non-/pages version, merging traffic (and SEO juice) to a single url. 



Redirecting /pages urls: 

1. Log in to your website.

2. Navigate to the Account Settings page by hovering over your name in the top right hand corner of your screen and clicking on Account Settings.



3. Click on the 'Manage Your Redirects' tab.

4. Click on the 'Add Redirect' button.




5. The 'Add Redirect' popup will display.






6. Fill out the redirect form as follows:

  • Beside 'Pattern,' paste ^\/pages\/([^\/]*)$ 
  • Beside 'Redirect To:' paste /$1 
  • Beside 'Type,' choose 'Permanent.'
  • Click 'Add Redirect'

 





7. At the top of your screen, a message will display in a green box which reads: "Account Info Redirect Saved." All pages will now direct to their non-/pages versions.



Redirecting /services urls: 

1. Log in to your website.

2. Navigate to the Account Settings page by hovering over your name in the top right hand corner of your screen and clicking on Account Settings.



3. Click on the 'Manage Your Redirects' tab.

4. Click on the 'Add Redirect' button.




5. The 'Add Redirect' popup will display.
