    Site configuration
    Settings
    Paramater handling

    a bunuch of parameters such as
    id
    s
    sort
    cat
    p

    Set all parameters which does have nothing todo with your content on the page to ignore. Example if you have the following url:

    Code:
    index.php?trafficsource=123
    Than you can ignore the parameter, because you dont want to get a lot of pages with the same content indexed.

    cool but what if i have something like the letter "p" if i put that in there will it ignore all links starting with p in the final part? I can understand sort and such...

    do all paramaters start with ? then the url so if it says "p" in the parameters section are we talking
    domainname/somelink?p

    or would it block like domainname/peaches because peaches starts with p haha make sense?
