Problem with URLs and duplicated content

Hi everyone.
I’ve got a problem with the urls of my magento installation.
I don’t understand why but the urls in the site works both with or without the category in the urls, leading to a duplicated content and a penalization by the search engine.

Here is the example, that’s the right url, navigating correcly through the categories menu:
http://www.callemarconi.com/shop/bmx/pegs/khe-bikes-alchemy-10mm.html

but if I navigate just to the category bmx and i select the same product the final url is:
http://www.callemarconi.com/shop/bmx/khe-bikes-alchemy-10mm.html

of course it works even without any category name in the url:
http://www.callemarconi.com/shop/khe-bikes-alchemy-10mm.html

Anyone has a clue?
I’m running Magento 1.3.2.3

Thanks

Hi Federico,

You must install the following extension on your site. It creates one unique URL for each and every product for your entire site.

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 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

Must have extension for any Magento or E-commerce website.

Kind Regards
Scommerce Mage
