Duplicate title and description in WMT - All dups have "?mobify=0" extension!?...

by 5 comments
WMT shows 90 duplicate description and 70 duplicate title tag. But the problem is that the duplicate are not actually a different page. They all have the .mobify extension which I assume has something to do with enabling a site to be viewed on Mobile phones

Here are few examples:

how-does-facebook-make-money/
/how-does-facebook-make-money/?mobify=0


/10-easy-ways-to-get-more-page-views-for-your-blogwebsite/
/10-easy-ways-to-get-more-page-views-for-your-blogwebsite/?mobify=0


Does anyone know how this can be fixed. I would really appreciate some help. Thanks in advance.

    Can't you just request these pages be de-indexed?

      The problem is that there are so many of them,virtually for every page there is one with that extension.

      And how would I request to index these pages?...

      Thanks.

    2 options:

    1. Robots.txt file
    Disallow */?mobify

    2. Google webmasters tools
    Click parameters and add mobify as the parameter

      Thanks for the suggestions Michael.

      I actually did the second one today. It was already added as a parameter, so I went ahead and marked it as one that doesn't change the content of the page. Do you think that should do it?...

      Thanks again.
