    Question Mod_Rewrite URLs not indexed by Google

    I decided to change my urls from dynamic over to mod_rewrite URLs.

    Before I did this my URLs looked like this:

    Now with mod_rewrite they look like:

    I used the following code within the .htaccess file in the used folder:

    Options +FollowSymLinks
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteRule view/id/(.*)/ view.php?id=$1
    RewriteRule view/id/(.*) view.php?id=$1
    I've noticed that Google is failing to index the new URLs, not sure why not, any ideas?

    Thanks in advance.

    first thing give it time, how long has it been?

    second things look to do 301 redirect from every old page to every new page

    The block issue maybe duplicate content.

    As mentioned above...

    Definitely make sure your old pages get 301'd to the new locations...check your pages indexed at google and make sure you get those flipped over.

    You need to 301 redirect your old-style URLs to your new ones, and then it is a waiting game (it can be days, it can be weeks).
