URL :: Trailing slash and SEO :: same page treated as duplicated

Posted: July 16, 2019 at 5:00 PM Quote #242562
Hi,

An SEO expert reported me that every NopCommerce pages are tagged as duplicated by Google because :

http://domain.com/product and http://domain.com/product/ are treated as a separate page and don't redirect.

The following post from 2014 does a good summary of the problem and give a solution with a URL rewrite rules.
https://www.nopcommerce.com/boards/t/28746/url-trailing-slash-for-seo-purposes.aspx

I am using NopCommerce 4.10.  Is there a better solution than the URL rewrite to avoid this ?

Thank you

Erik

Hi

It is impossible to consider duplicate content because 2 pages you send will have the same card as:

<link rel=canonical href=//shop3.sogphone.com/software-games>

They have the same canonical tag, so they cannot be considered as two different pages as you can say. And it doesn't affect SEO at all

To add on the point: nopCommerce already make use of Canonical URLs to prevent "duplicated page" issue. So there's no need to worry about it. :)

Hi,

How can I validate it?
I did not see any canonical meta tag in the source code when I open it in a browser.

Make sure your seosettings.canonicalurlsenabled setting is true, then the canonical meta tag will be in every page.
