rewrite help needed to remove end of url and explaination.

    Hi,

    I think this is simple, so hopefully someone can help and explain.

    I have several php urls that end in :

    .php?sortby=1&rev=1
    .php?sortby=12&rev=2
    .php?sortby=2&rev=1

    etc.

    This php code is used to sort information on the page.

    I want to remove everything from (and including) ?sortby= so that the url ends in .php.
    SEMrush
    I also want to make sure that the variables will still be available for the php code, so for the first example above, the url will end in .php in the browser yet the sortby and rev variables will still be known within the php code.

    I would also like to know that google/yahoo will no longer see any of the urls as ?sortby=1&rev=1.

    Is it simple? and can you help?

    Thanks.

    it's not complicated, you can't just remove them though.

    A) Try using a canonical URL tag if you don't want search engines indexing your page twice, or

    B) you must put the variable somewhere in the URL, like
    http://www.top-country-videos.com/category/tim-mcgraw rather than ?category=tim-mcgraw

    there is no other way to do it.

    Cheers!
