I recently updated an old site with Blocs and uploaded the default sitemap, which looked fine, but I typically use Integrity Plus, that produces more detailed sitemaps, including image names and PDF files etc. From past experience Google seems to like this.
In the sitemap produced by Integrity Plus it lists both example.com/ and example.com/index.php as separate pages. I understand that both are technically correct, but in this instance I wonder if it’s causing confusion or undermining my SEO?
That being the case, should we be creating 301 redirect rules via htaccess for sites built with Blocs? With other design apps I’ve not encountered this problem, but I usually employ a different URL structure so that each web page is uploaded as an index.php file within a folder, so you end up with something like example.com/about/ rather than example.com/about.php with Blocs.
