At some level there seems to be a change in google (or our) settings that
are doing this everywhere. I've also been seeing a lot of links indexed and
appearing in google as the primary domain too
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boston, seen it on Wikivoyage as well and I assume
the others). At some level we're probably going to want to figure out
what's happening because at some point down the road 'something' changed
just not sure on what side.
