engine friendly. I'm wondering though if my new URL's will be
considered "duplicate URL's", in that the new URL will point to old
Old URL - This page is the old type of URL:
New URL - for IR translation:
IR would extract the 25 from the URL, and pass into /library/
So, the Old URL still exists, and can be accessed via Old URL
directly, but the new URL also works.
Is this considered "duplicate links" being they go to the same
content? I don't see any other way to start using IR, but I don't
want to be penalized by search engines.
likely boost your page rank. Using pretty permalinks is a very common
To avoid duplicate links and reduce the risk of getting penalized, you
must use only pretty URL links in your website. Do not use both types
of links for the same webpage. That is, for your example page, use
only the new URL, not both.
Also, if you finally decide to want to use a URL rewrite tool for IIS,
I strongly recommend IIS Mod-Rewrite (
). It's a much more solid solution, and it is compatible with apache
mod_rewrite. It has a lot of other fancy features and you might need
to take a look.
