    Hi there! I am starting a new site, and I have already posted a few articles (15). The thing is, when I search for my site to see if every thing is indexed (site:my-site.com) I get all my posts, but with the wrong URL. The URL is showing like this: my-site.com â–º Category . And that is the URL for my posts! It should be my-site.com/mypost . I leave you a image to see in more detail: 2014-08-08_1045.png

    So, what do you think it could be the problem? I have already submit my sitemap to Google Webmasters tool, but nothing has changed.

    Thanks in advance!

    Is this a WP site? If so, the structure of your sitemap probably includes the 'Uncategorized' as the category for the posts, hence showing up.

    How is the URL structure of your WP installation? Under settings you can select domain/%postname% (not sure if that's the right variable). I'd double check and make sure the URLs don't include categories and give it some time to recrawl the pages again.

    Hi there, thanks for answering!

    I have already configured de permalinks to /%POSTNAME% and I also deindexed all my categories pages with ALL IN ONE SEO plugin. I dont know what else to try. Any other ideas?

    Yeah, I have already submitted the new sitemap. Is there anything else to do with these tools?

    It's nothing to fret about. The urls of your posts are too long, so Google has shortened them. Changing your permalinks to postname will stop your urls from being displayed that way, but they will still be shortened using periods of ellipsis (...) if they are too long to be displayed in full.
