we're using Magento 2.2.1 with custom theme, which inherits Magento's default Layered navigation filters, which contains tag with filtering attributes, what is not SEO friendly:

enter image description here

is there any solution (module, extension) which can help to solve this problem? or maybe some workaround?

  • There are many module/extensions that ajaxify the LayeredNavigation, which in turn removes the hard anchor-link. Although this isn't easy to do out-of-the-box, as the Category page is listening for the attributes passed through the Query string.

  • Would be the same terminology, "Magento 2 layered navigation extensions". Arguably the most popular is MagePlaza's LayeredNavigation

You may check about using the PRG Pattern to fix link juice and SEO issues caused by the endless number of unique URLs created by Layered Navigation.

Simply said, it's about replacing the GET request to a layered navigation/filter URL with a POST request (which search engine crawlers do not follow) before redirecting the user to the original layered navigation/filter URL.

This works like a charm, i. e. not changing the UX regarding Layered Navigation and 100% reliable in terms of preventing crawlers from wasting crawl budget on useless duplicate content URLs.
