WEB1016 - The hyperlink ends in an ampersand

Expression Studio 4.0

A hyperlink should not end in an ampersand character (&) for a page that doesn't have a query string parameter.


If one hyperlink ends in an ampersand character (&), even if it is otherwise identical to other hyperlinks that point to the same page, it will be analyzed by the search engine as pointing to a different page.


The following hyperlink examples link to the same page, but would be analyzed by a search engine as pointing to two separate pages:

  • http://www.proseware.com/&category=109

  • http://www.proseware.com/&category=109&
