I am pretty sure there has to be a simple way to solve, but I just cannot find it.

So, by default, there are 2 types of product rules at my store:


The problem is that visitors (and robots) can access both versions and see it as duplicate content.

The solution would be to redirect (better yet remove completely) the first URL: mystore.com/catalog/product/view/id/177

Any help or guidance is much appreciated.


I suggest that You have to disallow /catalog/product/view/ from google crawl

Just add below code at robots.txt:

Disallow: /catalog/product/view/

Redirection over original product URL is a bad Idea.

So, the best solution allows system product URL at crawl.
