Indexing management
Live demo

This add-on is included in SEO addons (all in one package, 10+ addons) (goes free for SEO package owners) It covers all tasks from SEOs to CS-Cart stores and Multi-Vendor marketplaces

Add-on improves the quality of the search index by excluding technical pages and parameter pages from it

The principles of operation of the "Indexing management" add-on:

Now it will be possible to exclude technical and service pages of the site from indexing (they do not carry a semantic load for the user, but serve only for the service, technical purposes of the store) by adding a tag <meta name="robots" content="noindex, nofollow" /> to the source code.

What benefits you will have from "Indexing management":

  • ability to add the tag <meta name = "robots" content = "noindex, nofollow" /> to the source code of technical pages, thereby preventing search engines from indexing these pages and links from these pages. List of page managers that are technical: 'profiles', 'auth', 'checkout', 'orders', 'wishlist', 'reward_points', ''. Also, such a tag will be added on all pages if there are 'currency', 'sort_by', 'layout', 'subcats', 'items_per_page' parameters in the GET links;
  • ability to add the tag <meta name = "robots" content = "noindex, follow" /> in the source code of category pages without products (optional) and other pages (which the module can close from indexing), thereby prohibiting the indexing of such pages, but allowing the search robot follows the links from these pages;
  • ability to add the tag <meta name = "robots" content = "noindex, follow" /> in the source code of pages with a characteristic for the purpose of “Brand, author, etc.”, thereby prohibiting the indexing of such pages, but allowing the search robot following links from these pages;
  • ability to exclude objects prohibited for indexing from HTML and XML sitemaps, exclude canonicity for pagination pages (optional). exclude tags link rel = "next" and link rel = "prev" for pagination pages (optional);
  • ability to handle 301 redirects for cases with errors in the URL (handling the slash at the end, handling extra slashes, handling the case of characters;
  • possibility of not excluding landing categories from indexing (but only if they have subcategories) with the active setting "Prohibit indexing empty categories";
  • ability to manage indexing and canonical links for promo pages;
  • ability to manage the indexing of review pages;
  • managing the openness for indexing and the canonicity of an object (product and category pages) - for each such page, it is allowed to close from indexing or indicate canonicity to another object (respectively, a product or a category);
  • import/export of Noindex and Canonical attributes of products

Integration with other add-ons:

  • Advanced Sitemap for CS-Cart - objects closed from indexing are automatically excluded from the XML sitemap
  • Landing categories/pages - option Exclude empty categories (without products) from indexing does not exclude landing categories from indexing (if they have subcategories) - even if they are empty
  • Extended promotions - managing indexing and canonical links of promo pages
  • SEO for reviews - reviews page repeats the behavior of the category page
