Question regarding Magento Layered Navigation & SEO

0 like 0 dislike
I had questions about Magento layered navigation & SEO.
It appears our site is being indexed with URLs that are relevant to attributes, for example, www.abc.com/exampleproduct?brand=69
This is creating tons of issues with duplicate content. Has anyone ever come across something like this and is there any good solution for it. Inchoo wrote a blog about it here: http://inchoo.net/online-marketing/magento-seo-how-to-handle-problems-caused-by-layered-navigation/ but it did not really come to a solid solution.
Thanks in advance, cm.

In the video, there are some solutions like nofollow, Robots.txt and more. You can take a look on the following suggestions too.

1. You can use the canonical of respective product page/category page on all the dynamic/filter pages.

2. If you are facing the issue, Google webmaster is reporting duplicate meta tags because all pages are indexed and they are containing meta tags of the main page. Then you can go for the dynamic meta tags.

But using canonical of the main page is the best option. Hope these suggestions will help you! :)

You should try to put noindex on the search url or parameter url. Or put canonical on every page. This will help bot to get the original page.

These are many extensions also available in the market which will help you to solve the issue of layered navigation.
