Duplicate k2 category listing was created by Goble002
Hello,

I have a menu item for a k2 category. So items will be listed in : domain.com/menu-alias/

However Google indexed the following :
domain.com/menu-alias/content/cat-alias/?start=210
domain.com/menu-alias/content/cat-alias/?start=105
and so on (quite a lot of them with each link with different page numbers).

I wasn't aware that these links existed before Google indexed them (though these were not submitted for indexing). I have asked for a temporary removal but I will need to remove the links from the site somehow. 

Any idea ?

Do you have Advanced SEF enabled in K2?

Switch "Enable custom SEF settings for K2 URLs" to "No".

Hi and thanks,

however this will add :
/item/ in my k2 items URL
/itemlist/tag/ in my k2 tags

I cannot afford to create menu items for these 500+ k2 items and Google has already index them.

May be a small trick in htaccess or somewhere else ?

Try replacing the file /components/com_k2/router.php with this one jmp.sh/CZ2oMKG from K2 v2.10.2. Clear your caches and check again.

For the record, for the next update of K2 there will be 4 URL router options: the default one, the one up to K2 v2.10.2, the one used in v2.10.3 and a new one which is both performant as the default one yet can be smartly optimized for improved URL structures.

Hello and thanks Fotis,

I compared this file with my actual one. It is exactly the same. I guess, it was recommended I use this newer version of router.php to solve a previous issue (but I can't find the post).

Anyway I can wait for next version of K2 and see if it solve my issue.
