URLs for products in multiple categories

Very often your store items can be included into 2 or more categories, thereby creating Magento duplicate content which is not favored by search engines. In order to prevent your products from having multiple URLs for proper site indexation by search engines you definitely need an effective solution.

With the Unique Product URL extension it’s possible to easily manage the way to use category in product URLs in Magento by selecting one URL path for each product even if it’s placed in numerous store categories.

How it works

With this tool you’ll be able to choose which URL path to use - either the shortest or the longest one. The path will be automatically applied to all the items having multiple URLs so that search engines will get unique Magento products URL for indexation. For example, if you have a ‘T-shirt’ in 2 categories: ‘Shirts’ and 'Sale', then choosing the Shortest path will mean using: example.com/sale/t-shirt as the main one.

3 Modes:

  • The shortest path
  • The longest path
  • Default settings

What pages are affected

The Magento product URL extension enables you to set the unique URL for each and every section of the store. The unique URL will also work when you come to the product page from the category page or by clicking a direct link.

  • Site map
  • Search results
  • Up sells
  • Cross sells
  • Related products

IMPORTANT: No matter which category path you use, the product will be still accessible from all categories it is added to.

Auto redirect to canonical urls

Google doesn't favor duplicate content. You can remove duplicates by showing Google which URLs it should crawl. They are called canonical URLs. By setting up 301 redirect to canonical urls, you'll show search engines preferable urls to crawl and indicate that the content is not duplicated.

Breadcrumbs generation options

You can choose either to generate breadcrumbs based on current url or last visited category:

  • current url: Home -> Pants -> Classic -> Black pants
  • last visited category: Home -> On sale -> Black pants
  • Such breadcrumbs are highly user friendly, for instance, user may visit Black pants page from On sale category and won't be tangled of the product url path.

    add this and I will love you even more
    The extension saved one of my stores, it helped me to delete duplicate pages and even helped to become higher in Google results. I just chose to use one of the categories as the main one and other URLs have canonicals to it.

    However, my another site needs another approach. I want to disable showing categories at all. But if I do that, I still can access product URLs with category paths directly via address bar. This needs to be changed^ once I choose to display all product addresses without categories in them, URLs with categories should be automatically redirected with a 301 redirect to the right pages. This would be a very useful feature, please consider adding it.

    The results that you can see immediately
    The thoughts about duplicate content never came to my head until I started digging into seo details. Having upgraded my seo skills I started looking for the tools to help my store become more attractive for google.

    The product url module was the first from numerous seo apps I started frantically installing to my store. And to tell the truth, the only one that appeared to work exactly the way I needed. The settings are very intuitive, so I don’t see any issues which could prevent a sane person from properly configuring them.

    In case you have nothing to do with the duplicate content and have never heard about google indexation… this module is also for you! I highly recommend it for any magento store.

    Good way to organize products
    I found this extension when I already had massive stock where products belonged to at least 3 categories. I suspected that this was a wrong way of organizing products but I didn’t have time to think about that. Now all the Panda related talks made me to switch priorities and remove duplicate content from my Store.
    This extension was of great help as now all the products are found only on one URL. But I advise you to make such changes once your store is set up as it’s always easier to do something from the scratch than redo it later.

    Life saver
    I’m not quite into SEO, but this mod happened to help me a lot.
    It was a sad story when I received a newsletter from amasty with a link to an article about duplicate content issues in Magento. Shock. I found I have lots of duplicate content in serps because I have a lot of products that belong to several categories… Naturally, I didn’t know about that before. As a result I installed this mod and managed all the duplicates, and got them deindexed. And this influenced my rankings a lot. Please don’t follow my footsteps and avoid this horrible mistake.
    All in all the mod is super easy to handle, no rocket science settings. Please write more articles on things I still don’t know…

    Quick and nice solution
    I like the mod as it does its job. I needed something easy to fix that particular problem as I have many products belonging to multiple categories. I didn't want a big extension with lots of features where only 30% of them are necessary for me.
    This extension isn't overloaded. with anything and works just like it should. Thanks!
