Duplicate Titles and meta descriptions

Postby copels » Wed Oct 15, 2008 11:44 am

Hi there

I checked my Google Webmaster panel and it has registered quite a few duplicate titles and descriptions. I've excluded the ones that reference multiple currencies using the robots.txt file but I think most of them are because the old urls and the new urls have now been indexed - see below:

Welsh Gifts and Welsh Souvenirs from Wales St David's Flag - Flag of St David's Flag (2ft x 3ft or 5
‎/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=29‎
‎/welsh-flags-29/‎

A great selection of Welsh sporting gifts from hats to golf club covers. Go on, wear a bit of Wales
‎/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=22‎‎
/welsh-sporting-gifts-22/‎

I'm worried that Google will start penalizing me!

Please can you help.

Steve

It may take some time to re-index your web site, but all old URLs are redirected to new locations automatically.

NEVER MIND. I figured it out. :D

I'm having a similar problem. Using Zen latest version. Magic was installed by you. The product info pages are showing Titles and Meta Descriptions in duplicate and triplicate and can be seen when viewing the page source. Example:

Magic SEO URL only transforms all old URLs to new SEO formats. The rest of HTML source code remain same.
To prove this, temporary comment out installation line in includes/application_top.php and you will see whether anything change.
