Multiple URL's to the same page.

5 replies
Today I was browsing through Google Analytics and noticed that I have 2 different url's for the same page and that one of the urls had traffic which stopped in Jan. Yet the other url started in Jan. So GA makes it look like they are 2 different pages and so they have different stats.
Lets just say that I have a web page url of this url was getting traffic until Jan of this year and then it stopped. Yet the other url with no / on the end started getting traffic in Jan until this day. The funny thing is that they both rank for different keywords.
I'm going to some backlinking as I have neglected it, which url should I use the one with / or the one without? Does it actually matter?

    use dynamic linking and incorporate 301 redirects to make all versions of the page go to the same URL

        use google to find some tutorial about redirecting,
        I am doing this in .htaccess file in the root of my website

        Put something like this:
        RewriteRule old-url new-url [R=301,L]

        after these lines (which should be in the beginning of your .htaccess file):
        RewriteEngine On
        RewriteBase /
