The e-commerce.

session ids still present HELP!


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I have installed chemos dynamic urls, cdynamic meta tags and i am using this contribution (Spider session remover)


i installed these around the end of april, i had one or two older urls show up so i added some 301 rules to redirect these to the new urls in my .htaccess


now it seems however that Google in particualr (via google webmaster tools) has gone through my site and has session ids. I have 136 not found errors because of session ids.


from may 1st to may 7th Google indexed my site and all the urls have oscisid with them... I need help!!


my .htaccess reads

Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine On 
RewriteBase /

# Skip the next two rewriterules if NOT a spider
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} !(msnbot|slurp|googlebot) [NC]
RewriteRule .* - [S=2]
# case: leading and trailing parameters
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^(.+)&osCsid=[0-9a-z]+&(.+)$ [NC]
RewriteRule (.*) $1?%1&%2 [R=301,L]
# case: leading-only, trailing-only or no additional parameters
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^(.+)&osCsid=[0-9a-z]+$|^osCsid=[0-9a-z]+&?(.*)$ [NC]
RewriteRule (.*) $1?%1 [R=301,L]

In my admin, prevent spider sessions is set to true.

I am not using a robots.txt file.
