duplicates URL in virtumart
« on: June 23, 2011, 10:03:29 am »
in my website http://www.odafim-lametayel.co.il i have many duplicate url's
most of them has in the url the indeX2.php ( 900 out of 1950 )
my store has about 200 products so the total url's number in google is wrong .
I tried sh404sef , i blocked the index2.php url's in the robots.txt but google just increas the number of index2.php url's
what can i do ?

You block in robots.txt had not worked. You can use Google webmaster to check it.

--Or--

You have not waited long enough! Google can take a while to reindex those pages and then detect them as blocked by robots.txt.

You can also try my plugin for adding rel-canonical tags to your product pages.

I have the same kind of problem. kevinwood, I tried your plugin but I cannot choose which one is the good url, since it is automatic, it chooses one that I don't want :/

I have many duplicates for content, I am using AceSEF but even though I checked no to Duplicate content I still have many duplicates...


Here is 3 types of same URL:
http://www.mydomain.com/food/31-myproductname.html
http://www.mydomain.com/vegetables/31-myproductname.html
http://www.mydomain.com/city/paris/31-myproductname.html

I think also I might have some other problem:
If I want this last one to be the main URL what can I do whith my Breadcrumb and my "next product" button, I think they might not work...

Thanks in advance for feedback,

Cotp

If you really want to choose which url should be the canonical one you can use an extension like TagMeta to do that.  If you only have a few products it's not so bad, but if you have a lot of products then it just seems like a lot of work doing it manually.
