Name

BounceRobotSessionURL — remove explicit mv_session_id in RobotUA request if provided

SYNOPSIS

No | Yes

DESCRIPTION

When BounceRobotSessionURL is enabled, GET requests from RobotUAs to URLs with mv_session_id provided are redirected to the same URL minus the session_id

This keeps search engines that respect redirects from storing the session_id-salted URLs in their indexes, and helps them focus on the real resource with a single URL instead of a multitude of salted links.

DIRECTIVE TYPE AND DEFAULT VALUE

Catalog directive

EXAMPLES

Example: Enabling BounceRobotSessionURL

BounceRobotSessionURL yes
