While using the SEO Friendly URLs, I had invalid urls indexing as a valid page in Google Search Console.
My products.php is rewritten to /stone-products/
and my categories.php is rewritten to /stone-category/

The url /stone-products/[any string of text] would resolve to my "all products" - this resulted in thousands of pages being indexed because we had 25 pages of products. So the end result would be that the url /stone-products/[any string of text]?pg=1-25 was being indexed for any string of text.

I ended up testing for a numeric $GLOBALS['catid'] or an empty value to display the incproducts.php and if not, display an error message and throw a 404 error.

Here's the code for the products page:

[code]<?php
if ((is_numeric($GLOBALS['catid'])) || (($GLOBALS['catid'])=='')){
include "[storedir]/inc/incproducts.php";
}
else {
header("HTTP/1.0 404 Not Found");
echo '<p><em>'.$GLOBALS['xxSryNA'];
echo '<p>';
$crosssellaction='bestsellers';
include "[storedir]/inc/inccrosssell.php";
echo '</p>';
}
?>[/code]

This is category page:

[code]if ((is_numeric($GLOBALS['catid'])) || (($GLOBALS['catid'])=='')){
include "vsadmin/inc/inccategories.php";
}
else {
header("HTTP/1.0 404 Not Found");
echo '<p><em>'.$GLOBALS['xxSryNA'];
echo ' Need something else?</em></p>
echo '<p>'
.'New Inventory';
$recommendedcategories=TRUE;
include 'vsadmin/inc/inccategories.php';
echo '</p>';
}[/code]

Includes
[code]
$GLOBALS['detlinkspacechar']='-';
$GLOBALS['seodetailurls']=TRUE;
$GLOBALS['seocategoryurls']=TRUE;
$GLOBALS['seocaturlpattern']='/stone-category/%s';
$GLOBALS['seoprodurlpattern']='/stone-products/%s';
$GLOBALS['seourlsthrow301']=TRUE;
[/code]

.htaccess
[code]
RewriteOptions inherit

RewriteEngine On

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>

RewriteBase /

RewriteRule ^stone-category/([^/.]*)?$ /categories.php?cat=$1 [QSA,nc,L,B]
RewriteRule ^stone-products/([^/.]*)?$ /products.php?cat=$1 [QSA,nc,L,B]
#RewriteRule ^manufacturer/([^/.]*)/?$ /products.php?man=$1 [QSA,nc,L,B]
RewriteCond $1 !\.(png|gif|jpg|ico|pdf|css|js|php|xml|html|htm)$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^([^/.]+)$ proddetail.php?prod=$1 [QSA,nc,L,B]
</IfModule>
[/code]

Hope this solution helps someone else!

Thank you,
Lynne

Hi Lynne br / Am I understanding correctly that the $_SERVER[ REQUEST_URI value isn't what you think it should be? If that's the case, have you tried printing out the value to see if it agrees with what you think it should be? Or even, display all the server variables with for instance...

<?php
$allserver=$_SERVER;
ksort($allserver);
foreach($allserver as $key => $value){
print '<div style="width:300px;text-align:right;float:left">' . $key . ' : </div><div> ' . $value . "</div>";
}
?>

Does that help at all? Or am I not getting the right idea?

Vince
