Just wanted to thank the fine folks at fafich.ufmg.br for all the free traffic and link juice. Thanks to their misapplication of my comprehensive canonicalization code, every non-canonical version of their 21,700 indexed pages points directly to my site, Perishable Press. This means that every one of their permalink URLs that is mistyped, lacks the “www” prefix, or contains the superfluous “index.php” file name is directed via permanent redirect directly to the home page of my site.
I have tried contacting the site owner(s) about this situation, but it has been over a week and I have yet to hear anything back. Hopefully, they will take notice soon and correct the issue by properly configuring their htaccess file, but in the meantime, I certainly don’t mind the extra link juice and free traffic! :)
