Okay so recently I have noticed that when viewing my web stats in Google Analytics my homepage is being listed twice within reports. Once as simply as / and then as mydomaindotcom/index.html
After looking around the GA help files I found the following article: http://support.google.com/analytics/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=1009675
It states that "You can configure Google Analytics to treat them as the same page by defining the Default page for your profile". It then continues to advise that under Main Website Profile Information "in the Default page text box, enter the default (or index) page for this domain. This is the page that loads when a visitor enters only the domain of your site into their address bar. For example, if www.exampledotcom loads your index.html web page, enter index.html in this text box."
If I type mydomain into the browser the at first page it loads the file index.html but in the address bar it simply reads mydomaindotcom/ it is only when I then go back to the home page that it then changes the address to include index.html. I know this is the case as in my code any links to the homepage are coded as fulldomaindotcom/index.html
It is slightly confusing me and I don't want to mess up my analytic reports or anything. Which value should I set as the default page? (At the moment it is currently empty) Has anyone else how this problem and had did you overcome it?
Thanks in advance.
