proud_usa_ca Posted August 20, 2008 Share Posted August 20, 2008 Check Google webmaster tools because Google has started showing duplicate titles/descriptions due to the standard oscommerce sort and paging functions. Example shown with SEO URLs. Product URL http://www.mysite.com/a-great-product-c-32.html Duplicate titles/descriptions http://www.mysite.com/a-great-product-c-32...t=2a&page=2 http://www.mysite.com/a-great-product-c-32...t=2d&page=2 http://www.mysite.com/a-great-product-c-32...t=3a&page=2 http://www.mysite.com/a-great-product-c-32...t=3d&page=2 Then when you consider the number of pages there may be it gets worse from there. I've had an answer from webmaster tools and they seem to recommend the use of rel="nofollow" The following is my initial suggestion but has no testing: - 1) includes/classes/split_page_results.php Find all instances of tep_href_link in each link find .. class="pageResults" change to .. class="pageResults" rel="nofollow" 2) includes/functions/general.php Find function tep_create_sort_heading find in the function .. title=" Change to .. rel="nofollow" title=" 3) includes/boxes/languages.php Find .. language=' . $key, $request_type) . '"> Replace with .. language=' . $key, $request_type) . '" rel="nofollow"> It would be good if others added or changed this over time as we find out how it works and/or which additions are needed. I did follow this instruction. Now, Google did not cache my website anymore. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
