/s.nl/sc.26/category.321802/.f. url Redirect


I’m actually running under Sitebuilder, and I have a little issue trying to redirect older non Descriptive URLS /s.nl/sc.26/category.321802/.f. to new URLS.

According Netsuite Help:


If you use Site Builder, you must enable the Descriptive URLs feature. You cannot redirect from Site Builder URL parameters such as, /s.nl/sc.26/category.321802/.f. You must use a descriptive URL such as /Product-Catalog/office-accessories.

I have a lot of pages (Around 4.000) indexed by Google with the /s.nl/sc.26/category.321802/.f. urls and I’m trying to redirect them to new Urls. .Htaccess is not working and common redirect via netsuite is not workin neither.

So my question are:

1-Is there any solution to redirect older /s.nl/sc.26/category.321802/.f. urls no new URL?

2-If I activate Descriptive URLs at the older /s.nl/sc.26/category.321802/.f. an say for example that I call it /product-new/ will start indexing automatically instead the /s.nl/sc.26/category.321802/.f. ? I don’t know If I explaining me properly…. I tried to convert the /s.nl/sc.26/category.321802/.f. to /product-new/ descriptive URL and then redirect it to the NEW URL and the redirection between /product-new/ -> New URL works but not from /s.nl/sc.26/category.321802/.f -> New URL and I dont If netsuite will do this by itself.

Thanks for listening…

NetSuite should automatically be redirecting to the Descriptive URL without you having to do anything — just turn it on.

For Google:  are you using the canonical tag in your category template?  With that, Google should start moving those URLs over to the descriptive URLs.

<link rel=”canonical” href=”<%=getCurrentAttribute(‘sitecategory’,’canonicalurl’)%>”>

For item detail template I use:

<link rel=”canonical” href=”<%=getCurrentAttribute(‘item’,’canonicalurl’)%>”>

This way Google should start “seeing” that pages URL properly and the s.nl links will start to disappear.
