Today I spotted some search engine indexing issue, which after a bit of research, appears to be a canonical WordPress issue. I was checking, if some subpages of my site are in fact indexed, hence the FireFox SEO Doctor tool flagged various pages as non-indexable. I double checked this in google via “site:www.example.com/page/” too and it’s partly true.
I am not sure why, but WordPress somewhat truncates post URLs that go deeper than one level i.e. www .example.com/core-articles/special/thearticle is truncated to www .example.com/core-articles/thearticle. It still works and directs correctly, but if I use the first example of URL with 2 sub directories (so to speak), it gets flagged as non-indexable by google and SEO Doctor. The truncated URL is indexed though.
Any thoughts on that? Does it matter?
Thanks for your help!
