SEO Toolkit

With the extension, you can bring your Magento store SEO to a new level. Use an extended selection of SEO tools and upgrade your online store according to the latest search engines requirements.

SEO Toolkit Settings

To configure the extension, go to Admin Panel → System → Configuration → SEO Toolkit

301 Redirects to Home Page - Enable the option to remove duplicate content.

Enable Redirect from 404 to Search Results - The feature redirects customers to a search result page instead of 404 page not found. For instance, when customers navigate to exmaple.com/shorts page, which does not exist (404 not found), the extension redirects them to a page with shorts search results.

Add Link Rel=“next/prev” - To improve indexing, links that are components to the series will be grouped. Users will receive the most relevant URL's (the first page of the series: e.g. example.com/extensions.html instead of example.com/extensions.html?p=1).

NOINDEX

To prevent search engines (Google, Bing, Yahoo, etc.) from needlessly indexing Magento catalog search results page(s) and advanced search results page(s) we added the code to app/design/frontend/YOUR_PACKAGE/YOUR_THEME/layout/local.xml.

  • If this file does not yet exist in your custom theme you can create it and Magento will automatically include it.
  • If this file already exists in your custom theme then copy everything except the first line XML declaration and elements into your copy of local.xml.
