What's Up with /default.asp? 😳

It's important to direct your store's URL to the proper location so that your site is getting full SEO juice. This is done with something called a canonical tag. Without canonical tags, your store's SEO value might be divided between www.yourvolusionstore.com and www.yourvolusionstore.com/default.asp.

Setting up your canonical tag is easy. Head over to Marketing > SEO, and look under the Search Engine Friendly URLs section. Here you'll find the Enable full URL for Home Page Canonical Link (include /default.asp) check box. Select it, and you're good to go!

When /default.asp Displays in Your Store URL

Whether or not you have the canonical link enabled on your Marketing > SEO page, /default.asp may still show up in the URL bar. There are two possible reasons for this:

• If someone accesses your site without typing out "www" first

• Or if you access your site using a link that already includes /default.asp

You can use JavaScript to remove the /default.asp in these instances, but this could mess with your SEO, so we highly advise against it!
