I have been working on SEO for multi store Magento but facing error of duplicate contents especially for product pages.
Client wants to keep the Category Url in product page but this is indeed giving us the duplicate content issues.
Looking at the backend settings for SEO, we have the following key player settings for SEO:
Use Categories Path for Product URLs = Yes Use Canonical Link Meta Tag For Categories = Yes Use Canonical Link Meta Tag For Products = Yes
We are using multi website as per country in sub-directory. For example:
http://mystore.com/uk/ -> for UK http://mystore.com/us/ -> for US http://mystore.com/fr/ -> for FR
And all the websites have the same catalog products. So we will have same product content in all the websites. For example:
http://mystore.com/uk/men/shirt/polo-red.html http://mystore.com/us/men/shirt/polo-red.html http://mystore.com/fr/men/shirt/polo-red.html
Note that we are using the following rel="alternate" meta tags for above product page as:
<link href="http://mystore.com/us/men/shirt/polo-red.html" hreflang="en-us" rel="alternate"/> <link href="http://mystore.com/uk/men/shirt/polo-red.html" hreflang="en" rel="alternate"/> <link href="http://mystore.com/fr/men/shirt/polo-red.html" hreflang="en" rel="alternate"/>
What is the best SEO optimisation technique in order to solve the issue of duplicate content issue for product pages for above cases?
Any help/suggestion is really appreciated.
