Hi Guys,

Here is the other module which allows you to have one unique product URL across your web store. This is must have extension for Magento.

http://www.scommerce-mage.co.uk/magento-extensions/magento-seo-catalog-urls.html

Here are the main features of this module-:

- One primary category for products which are there in multiple categories.
- Permanent redirects (301) if you explicitly remove category path from the URL
- Permanent redirects (301) if you explicitly add non-primary category in the URL
- Primary category will be used in the URL for each and every section of the store including cross sells, up sells, relative products, basket link, search, advance search etc.
- It also resolves duplicate content issue problem for your site as search engines will find one unique url for each product instead of multiple urls
-This module can be completely disabled whenever required via system configuration in admin

Kind Regards
Scommerce Mage

Hello,

I’m using “Use categories path for product URLs” to “yes” to have product urls with the name of categories.
But the issue i that now i have 2 URLs for the same product :
- url of the product without category name
- url of the product with category name

So is it possible to disable the URL without category name because now i have duplicate content and Google doesn’t like that.

Thanks and sorry for my bad english.

Hello, if it is still relevant, I want to offer you our new extension: http://amasty.com/magento-unique-product-url.html, that does exactly what you need. The module lets you choose one URL for each product placed in multiple categories and avoid duplicate content.

Please visit the Unique Product URL page to see the live demo and a user guide.

Canonical tag is very much helpful for E commerce website because it has many product variant. So through canonical tag is useful to tell search engines which single page for all the product variant should index and display in SERP.

Magento provides canonical tags as an default functionality.
