Canonical URLs for products, categories as well as CMS Pages

Canonical URLS help search engines (Google) distinguish between original page from derivatives carrying the same content. By default Magento doesn’t add canonical URLs to CMS pages and other pages as necessary. SEOSPace Maento SEO extension places correct canonical URLS to those pages, helping search engines to properly index those pages for greater reach.

Verification & Tracking Code

Google, Bing & Alexa need to know you own a site before they’ll show you certain information about it or enable you to use our tools. Once you’ve verified your ownership of your site, you’ll be able to do various things in their respective control panels. For an example in Google Webmaster tool you can:

  • See Google data for your site in Webmaster Tools, to diagnose potential problems and improve the quality of your site.
  • Add and manage other site owners
  • Tell Google when your site URL changes
  • Remove sitelinks from Google search results
  • Tell Google how you prefer your site to be indexed

Unfortunately, in order to verify your site you have to update your store page and insert a Meta Key which sometimes becomes difficult for non-tech store owners.
