Magento's store URL wuery param is really annoying me and I'm not sure of the point of it when there is a store cookie for holding this info, also it only appears when you first visit a site or switch store views.
I would like to remove it as I think it may not work well with SEO & Search Engine Indexing. Also it looks bad!
I tried changing the setting on System > Configuration > Web > URL OPTIONS > Add Store Code to Urls to Yes but this is bad in another way as the default store view code and others are appended to every url. SEO duplicated content.
I don't know. Is there good logic behind how Magento is working that I'm not getting or can I remove this?
I tried the Bubble_HideDefaultStoreCode module to remove store codes but it did not.
I'm thinking maybe I can remove these URLS params with an NGINX re-write but am not sure how I can do this?
