SEO Hack
« on: December 02, 2020, 15:53:57 pm »
Hi.
I deal with seo on the sales page. I use Custom Filter PRO + JoomSEF. I'm creating SEO friedly filtering. I can provide a unique meta title, meta description, sef url, index, follow for the selected filter.

I need to make sure that the filter text is added to the page after the category name. I discussed with the manufacturer and the only option is to find a handy person who will create a plugin for it.

Is there anyone here who can create it for a reasonable price?

I'm just wondering if your wish makes sense from the SEO point of view. Normally Google would just index the canonical category or product url and ignore additional urls pointing to the same page.

I want to do this so that the filtered page will not be canonical. It will be unique. According to the keyword analysis, I will do only those long tail search terms. That's why I want to change the name to make the page more and more unique.

I tried to contact the manufacturer of the filtering component, but it doesn't respond. Probably not interested in listening to feedback and improving. . .

This is what redirecting a non-sef url filter to a sef url in JoomSEF - a plugin for Virtuemart looks like. If someone could add another field like the Filter Title, or even a category description and replace what is in the category with it, it would be great.

So the copywriter invents a unique category name and a unique category description, and as soon as this sef url is displayed, these parameters will overwrite what I have for the category set in Virtuemart. A simple idea. Someone just has to program it. :)

Maybe if someone wants it so much, someone might have to pay a programmer to do it.

If the filtering component people are not interested it gives you a big hint as to their understanding of the benefit to others but yourself

I have a different opinion. People don't know that they should be interested. There are a lot of programmers and designers who know only a basic minimum about SEO. . . thank God :)

@marvays

I already explained in your ticket that what you are trying to do is totally pointless.
Either you are not reading my replies or you don't understand them.

Code: [Select]
I tried to contact the manufacturer of the filtering component, but it doesn't respond. Probably not interested in listening to feedback and improving. . .
Stating that i am not responding or not interested is far from the truth and also defaming for me.
Also seem that you are totally uninformed of SEO, but despite that, you insist that your view is an improvement while mine is a luck of interest.
Well it is not.

I clearly explained that what you are trying to do is a waste of money and time.
Despite my advice, you prefer that way.

1. All the results pages have a canonical tag.

In simple words that means that those pages will never get indexed by Google.
Instead their canonical reference will be indexed.


2. You were aiming at indexing every single results page generated by the filters combination . For that reason you wanted to add more keywords (than the category), in the results header (H1 in your case).

This will create nothing more than several pages with duplicate content and what you think as improvement, will result in penalizing your site by Google.
https://developers.google.com/search/docs/advanced/guidelines/duplicate-content

This is why the canonical tag points always to the category page, no matter the selected filters.
Google suggests adding canonicals when a content is filtered down.
https://support.google.com/merchants/answer/9340054?hl=en

Needless to mention that the generated title can become extremely long and uncomprehending for your users.
There is a tag/breadcurmbs module in our package that shows the selections, for that purpose.

3. The page's title and meta-tags are being updated by Custom Filters, based on the page's search, category, manufacturer.

4. You are using a "SEO" extension that ruins your filtering URLs, overrides SEO features by the installed extensions and worsens your site's performance.


If you want your results pages to get indexed, the best option is to change the canonical to point to com_customfilters instead of com_virtuemart but should still point to the category only url.
