[Plugin W3 Total Cache] - duplicate pages (7 posts)

    When I am looking on webmaster tools from google, it is saying I have pages with duplicate title tags. I went to see which pages and it seems I have two URLs for each page now..

    http://mywebsite.com/post
    and http://mywebsite.com/post/?w3tc_preview=1

    I am worried the dup content will be causing the crawling errors. Im not sure how i can stop this?

    This is the only report I've ever seen of this happening and there's nothing that i can see that allows me to duplicate this issue.

    Frederick - I have the same report in my webmaster tools. About 1400 pages are listed as duplicate title tags.

    I am experiencing the same problem.

    Has anyone resolved the issue, while still using the W3 Total Cache performance plugin?

    Frederick this is the same issue I reported to you back in January. I never found a fix, but have been blocking the duplicate posts via robots.txt with this line Disallow: /*?w3tc_preview=1.

    I did delete the plugin for a few weeks to see if that fixed it, but I still have duplicate posts showing up. Luckily it's down to 4 from over 1,000.

    I've reinstalled the plugin today, so I'll report back if I see new duplicate posts showing up in webmaster tools.

    Considering that 3 of us now have the same issue I'd say there's a bug somewhere in the plugin.

    I have disabled the preview mode within the plugin, deindexed the URL's which had the /?w3tc_preview=1 added to the URL and also used the same disallow line in robots.txt

    Hope it helps.

    Now I have serve resources from a consistent URL in Adsense account.

    I think its because pages are served from 4 different urls
