Two URLs that you can use to hit the homepage


Tag: redirect,seo,sitecore

Having a sitecore website. Situation is for every country, there are two URLs that you can use to hit the homepage. and

We only want one - this is bad for both SEO and analytics. I want to retire and want to only work.

I already worked with embedded URL = always in web.config but didnt worked for me, Please help asap.


If you use LanguageEmbedding.Always in the LinkManager. Links generated with the Sitecore LinkManager have always a language code. But the other urls will also work.

You can use a Canonical see Tip 17 for search engines.

Or you can do a redirect if the url not match with the url you want.

Or block/redirect the url's in you netwerk/loadbalancer/webserver or redirect module or Sitecore <httpRequestBegin>pipeline. (just what you find convenient)

A simple solution is place a peace of code in your master page something like this:

string baseUrl = LinkManager.GetItemUrl(Sitecore.Context.Item);
if (baseUrl != Request.Path)

Also works for url aliases.
