    So i created a site and when i search for my full domain name in google, it shows several results.

    Now the first one is like it should look, proper title and everything, and then there are 3 more results of simple index file which ends like /index.html?SD (Some random 2 character where SD is) and title is also "Index of/"


    Does anyone know why this happens and how can i fix this?
    Picture for better explanation;

    If you dont have an index.html(or .php) then the server will do a files listing, SD is the sorting pattern. You need to upload an .html so the webserver dont disclosure your files anymore.

    Edit: It might be just cached, wait for the pages to disapear from search.

    Could it be due to sitemap? it has result like this

    <url>
    <loc>mylinkhere/</loc>
    <lastmod>2016-01-09T18:50:24+00:00</lastmod>
    </url>

    it's mylinkhere/ instead of like mylinkhere/index.html

    don't panic, you don't need to do anything, it was just indexing issue if you didn't misconfig the server
