- Google search adds .inf to our url

along with other sites who's links looked normal had our site with an extra .inf
in the url.
Has anybody seen that before? Why is it there?
Re: Google search adds .inf to our url
They have been APpending stuff (including non-exising stuff) to URLs for
the longest time (various queries and parameters) but I've never seen them
PREpending subdomain names to an URL. I would venture a guess that you may
have had some sort of a test subdomain at some point perhaps? Check your
DNS records, you may see that www.inf. subdomain in there or you may also
see it in your Apache virtual hosts section.
Regardless of how it got there, why is it still resolving and returning
content on it? Do you still need it? If not, disable it in .htaccess in
the root Web directory for www.sourceresearch.com
Add this to the .htaccess:
RewriteCond % !^www.sourceresearch.com [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.sourceresearch.com /$1 [R=301,L]
