What is SEO Link De-deduplicator?
The biggest problem OpenCart sites face is the duplicate/thin pages penalties caused by its default link scheme. By default, every page on the site can be accessed by a multitude of links. OpenCart SEO Link De-duplicator ends the duplicate link madness by standardizing one proper link for each page, and 301 redirecting all of the “ghost” versions to the proper link. Boost your SEO efforts in just minutes!
How It Works
As an example, let’s say you’re running a default OpenCart installation on widgetstore.net. You’re selling Blue Widgets. The regular URL to the Blue Widgets product page would be: http://www.widgetstore.net/blue-widget
However, you’ll soon find this product can be accessed from many, many different URLs, for example:
Secondary category pages:
Partially-seo manufacturer URL:
Partially-seo category URL:
Complete gibberish URL:
and thousands more!
Ugh. You can try the above examples on your own store and you’ll see it illustrated. The problem with having many duplicate pages is that Google will index many of these dubious URLs, making your site appear to have thin and duplicate content, which dilutes your pagerank and hurts your ranking in searches.
OpenCart SEO Link De-duplicator works in two ways:
1) It will change all of your links site-wide to a single canonical version. Each time a product is linked on your site, it will be linked to the same URL.
2) Permanently (301) redirect all the duplicate links to the correct canonical link so you don’t have to worry about losing any Pagerank or “link juice”
This plugin will also redirect variations of the site’s home page:
and your category pages:
and your information pages:
Do away with duplicate/thin content penalties once and for all with this easy plugin!
