That long list of characters is the session ID and should not be listed in the search engine listings. Be sure you have the prevent spiders option set to true in admin->configuration->sessions.

If you are saying that there are search engine listings with a session id, the simple approach is to clear your sessions table which will make the sessions invalid. This assumes you are ony talking about a few links. If you have a thousand links and they all have session id's, then you would want to use a coding solution. But if you have that many, I suspect something is not right in your shop, especially if you have had the prevent spiders setting set since August, at least.

Any change you make will not be immediate. The search engines have to look at that link when spidering your site. It might be tomorrow or two months from now. You can try contacting them and ask that they remove the links. Sometimes they will - sometimes they won't. Otherwise, you just have to wait.

my brother JACK just an important point is that the VSID is not limited just to search engines and sometimes i saw in my browser too !

1) Ensure your configure file is setup correctly. There are example configure files available on the forum.

2) Ensure your spiders.txt file is updated. http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/2455

3) In Admin - Configuration - Sessions, set Prevent Spider Sessions to True, Recreate Session to True.

4) http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/7163 - To remove osCsid URLs from Search engine listings, alternatively if you use Header Tags SEO the canonical code is built in.

For a correctly configured site the session id's should show for the first clicks after arriving on your site and then disappear.

 

Unless you have "Force Cookies" enabled, then they should not show at all.

As long as its correctly set-up and configured and you have set Prevent Spider Sessions to "true" , then there should be no problems with spiders/bots.

 

 

Its also recommended that you update your includes/spiders.txt file , click here>>

I found this thread because I was looking to get rid of the oscid portion of my pages and I just saw this post.

 

That is exactly how my pages are acting. After a click or two the oscid portion disappears.

 

So my question is should I worry about installing either of the two above listed addon's designed to use 301 redirects to get rid of the search engines records of older indexed pages? Btw, I have Header tags SEO installed already too.

I've got another question.

 

Are there pro/cons to having "Force Cookies" enabled?

 

Con: Anyone who have cookies disabled in their browser will not be able to shop at your site. They will be shown a "please turn on cookies to shop" page.
