duplicate urls - Post ID 273759

I just bought sitemapper and started scanning one of the sites. As it scans the site, it's pulling pages out of database, but instead of one of each, it's taking 2, 3 and sometimes 50 copies of the same URL. I'm using CoffeeCup sitemapper on a new PC with Windows 7. The database is remote from the site and brings in pages from pre-determined searches using php includes. The remote site is also using sessions and including session IDs in the URL. I'd like to get rid of those, too, but it's not a folder. Thanks for any help you can provide.

Hi Scott,

I deleted all the duplicates manually. The site I was crawling was http://www.roserobinson.com. I'm about to do another now. Similar site... all real estate MLS links.

I see you have a lot of dynamic content. You may want to limit some of those folders so it doesn't get caught in any loops.

I can see how some of these duplicates are coming up. The pages are based on search results, so if a particular property shows up in more than one search, the URL will be repeated. But there are only a dozen search pages, so a URL should not show up more than a dozen times at the very most. 50-100 times is completely inexplicable.

Hi Scott,

They're not actually folders. It's more like a predefined search for specific types of properties that are pulled out through a link, then displayed as search results in a php include, which is similar in function to SSI.

I can't really say off hand. I will log it with our developers to see if they see anything. I can't tell if it is just a bug with your site or our software.
