Canonical tag for product pages of (eleczo).

I need solution how to add a canonical tag for product pages as domainname.com/category/subcategory/product.html in MAGENTO 1.9.1.1.

Because, the same product page is getting listed with two diff URLs as "1. domainname.com/product.html", "2. domainname.com/category/subcategory/product.html"

Now, I am worried about copied content though there nothing copied or duplicate content.

Yes, I can avoid it by enabling canonical tag for product at the backend. But, this will as canonical as domainname.com/product.html. But, I want full path including category and subcategory. So, how can I achieve it?

  • System > Configuration > Catalog -> Search Engin Optimization -> Select Yes in "Use canonical link meta tag" – Aman Alam Jun 16 '16 at 7:57

To enable canonical meta tag on the product page:

Magento has canonical meta tags build in out of the box. In order to enable them go to:

Admin -> System -> Configuration -> Catalog -> Search Engine Optimization

Refer to the attached screen shot

  • You want product url with category but the problem is if product is assign to multiple category which url should you use. – Aman Alam Jun 16 '16 at 9:10
  • In my case there is nothing like that, I am not assigning a single product in multiple categories. So, now whats the solution? Also, in future if I add single product in multiple category then I would prefer the main category URL, even how to handle this..can u please suggest me? – Irfan Pasha I Jun 16 '16 at 9:20
