On my website, there is a category special offers. The way I fill this category is by just assigning the product to both, the standard category and the special offers one. Of course this leads to duplicate content for Google.

The question: Which is the best way of avoiding duplicate content for articles which are assigned to more than one category, for example by canonicalizing the special offers category? Is there a feature for it? Do I need to build this myself?


Magento has the inbuild functionlity of Canonical.Just go to System > Configuration > Catalog > Search Engine Optimizations.their Select Yes for Use Canonical Link Meta Tag For Categories and Use Canonical Link Meta Tag For Products and save and clear the cache.

  • I don't think this is the solution. both categories will have own canonical urls but same product(s). Google will still consider this duplicate content. – murtza gondal Dec 7 '16 at 14:04
  • @murtzagondal I agree to you as I am facing the issue you mentioned, is there any solution to handle this? – Anurag Khandelwal Apr 10 '17 at 13:53
