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.
