Description

I have had this recommendation and need someone to do it:

1. Title: Your website search engine reading
Type: Search Engine Optimisation

Currently, your website is being read by search engines as more than one website.

For example, your site is reading http://www.fivestarbootcamps.co.uk/, http://fivestarbootcamps.co.uk/ and http://www.fivestarbootcamps.co.uk/index.html as 3 different addresses, rather than just one. This is bad for search engine optimisation because your website appears to have duplicate content, when infact it is just 1 page accessed in 3 ways.

How to fix?
This is fixed with something called a “301 Redirect”. It basically redirects all users to one domain. Simply paste this code into your .htaccess file on your server (it is located in your root directory (If you can’t find it, create it).
Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^fivestarbootcamps.co.uk
RewriteRule (.*) http://www.fivestarbootcamps.co.uk/$1 [R=301,L]
RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} ^[A-Z]{3,9}\ /index\.html\ HTTP/
RewriteRule ^index\.html$ http://www.fivestarbootcamps.co.uk [R=301,L
