View Full Version : How to specify rel=canonical
May 18th, 2010, 02:28 AM
I renewed my license to download and fix duplicate title problem, as suggested. But I don't find how to specify the tag rel=canonical or avoid duplicate urls for the same photo. May you help me?

The new SEO urls only have one url to a photo like so
a category is accessed like this
Fish Pics - ReefTalk Gallery (http://www.reeftalk.com/gallery/g505-fish-pics.html)
There are no multiple urls as no other variables are passed in a url anymore. options are done with cookies.
You can add that rel=canonical if you wish on the main image tag if you wish in the code but there should be no need.

Thanks. And if I don't use the seo option rewrite urls the url is still unique right?

Thanks, but in GWT I see all theese links and each one show the same page
so I must add a rel=canonical instruction. How can I add this?
Moreover: trying to switch to seo mode, I see blank page: is missing some file?

Thanks for info, now is fixed.
Now I have to disallow through robots.txt all showphoto.php , it's ok this instruction:
It's enough for SEO ?
