Google search results conains results with ip address.

  • 1.  Google search results conains results with ip address.

    Posted 14 days ago
    I'm using xglobe imperva for my website 'www.mysite.co.il'.

    The domain address of my site is 'mysite.co.il',
    From time to time when I search on Google, I see results with the IP address instead of the domain name
    For example
    https://80.111.139.10/Products/GetProduct/12
    instead of
    https://www.mysite.co.il/Products/GetProduct/12
     Can you help me understand why this is happening and how to resolve it?  

    Attached is a dummy screenshot of Google search results, top result is correct, bottom result contains IP instead of domain.

    HI Bracha,

    Unfortunately, we (as webmasters) are at the mercy of the search engines in how and what they choose to index. 

    The first step to influencing this is to claim ownership of your domain with the major search engines. For Google, this is the "Google Search Console". (formerly known as Google Webmaster Tools)

    Regarding Imperva Cloud WAF, it is imperative to restrict access to the Origin to Imperva Cloud ranges. This ensures a client cannot access the Origin directly (bypassing Imperva Cloud WAF) by using the IP. (or modifying a hosts file or DNS record) 

    Imperva Cloud ranges are located within this article: https://support.incapsula.com/hc/en-us/articles/200627570-Whitelist-Incapsula-IP-addresses-Setting-IP-restriction-rules
