SEO pages for filters

Let me introduce the most advanced solution for the promotion in SEARCH ENGINES filter and filter combination pages for sites on CS-Cart - addon

This add-on allows you to create open to search engines pages with managed SEO for any filter page (or combination of filters). It simply opens unlimited possibilities to promote your store for any queries, even the most competitive, using only choosen filters pages. Your pages and their attributes will be relevant to search queries. Search engines will index these pages and you will get a flow of visitors for the queries of such type "Category" + "Feature" (For example, "TV LG";"LG 32 inch TV"; "TV LG 32 inch with Smart TV func"). According to statistics, such queries make result in more number of visitors, interested to make purchases, than general inquiries (eg, "TV"), which will provide your store with a large number of orders

Correct using of addon in practice will increase search traffic on 300 - 500% during the first three months after the implementation !!!!!!

The advantages of our solution for SEO promotion of filter pages and their combinations

— Automatic generation of pages by rules

You can create an unlimited number of rules for automatically generating of SEO pages for filters.

What is the rule?
Rule for generation - is stored in a database template for page creation process.It is a set of parameters to generate pages with certain elements of the mask: attributes and meta tags, using which SEO optimized pages will be generated. After creating the rule, you can change it at any time to start regeneration, and all the pages, having the status of "unfixed" to be rebuilt again in accordance with the new rules (template meta tags and others attributes). One-time creating a rule, you can maintain a constant process of creation of new pages in the case if new variants of filters will be added in the category. To do this you need to use cron (the system will give you a ready link to add tasks in cron).

From addon v. 2.0 we can create rules for multiple features

Also o use the filter combinations we have provided a manual mode of creating SEO pages.

— Manual mode of creating SEO pages

In manual mode, you can create a SEO optimized pages for filter their combinations (with several filter variants) without setting rules. To do this, you only need to copy the value of the parameter features_hash in link for formed filter page and use it with desired category.

In manual mode, you can create SEO optimized page, that is open for search engines as well as having all the necessary attributes to be optimized.

— Import - export of SEO pages for filters with all attributes

We have provided the best paradigm to work with SEO pages for filters:

  • Create a rule for pages generation
  • Generate pages according to the rules (get them in the unfixed status)
  • Exporting the resulting pages in Excel
  • Work with the attributes of pages (all the meta tags and seo texts as separate fields in the table), save the file
  • Importing to the system in the fixed status
  • Obtain profit

— 2 statuses of SEO pages

Especially for the best user experience in optimization, we have provided 2 pages statuses:

  • Unfixed – pages, that in time of the next generation will be automatically re-generated in accordance with the rules that you set (this status is used by SEOs as temporary & ndash; to manual inspection and optimization, after which the status of the links can be switched to fixed)
  • Fixed – pages, that can not be affected by automatically regeneration. This pages do not change their meta tags, SEO texts during next generating

Also SEO page status can be used for:

  • Search by SEO links in backend of addon
  • Generate a site map (unfixed pages can be excluded from the site map)

At any time you can change the status of the links in a fixed or unfixed status.

— Full control over the page optimization

For seo filter page (or page, formed from combination of filters) you can override:

  • title;
  • meta description;
  • H1;
  • meta keywords;
  • seo text (with editor);
  • text for Bread Crumbs of SEO page;
  • text for product Bread Crumbs (Bread Crumbs will be shown on associated with this seo filters product pages).

— Meta tags

Full control over the meta tags and elements of page HEADER for filter pages, that are optimized:

  • meta name="robots" content="noindex" – deleted in code for pages that are optimized;
  • element rel="canonical" – leads to a page of seo filter instead of category page;
  • element rel="alternate" – language versions of the page are correctly declared;
  • meta name="description" – full control (including the generation by a mask with autosubstitution of Category name variant name of feature);
  • meta name="keywords" – full control (including the generation by a mask with autosubstitution of Category name variant name of feature);
  • element rel=”next” и rel=”prev” – declares pagination pages for SEO Filter pages, not for categories or for the system (default addresses with parameters);

We have considered all the mistakes of other similar solutions and performed work optimally for search under the control of SEOs and you can be confident in the correctness of this addon!

Placeholders (variables) support for the automatic construction of the meta attributes and titles

When you create a page generation templates (rules) or manually creating them, you can use the following placeholders:

  • %category% - system category name
  • %custom_category_h1%custom H1 header (if you use the addon
  • %filter% - filter name
  • %variant% - feature variant name (activation of the filter through which leads to the creation of the page)
  • new!!!!!!!!starting from version 2.3 you can change the default names of features variants with the SEO optimized names

Using patterns

For all the attributes you can create and use (by one click) special combinations of words with placeholders (patterns)

— The correct weight transfer for Seo page filter by proper relinking

Search engines will know about the pages of SEO filters by the links from three sources:

  • category page (from filter block) with the support of sequence of choosen filters (if you are already registered filter combination + Samsung 32-inch, then from a page with selected Samsung will maintain a link to the page combination Samsung + 32);
  • product page (in breadcrumbs) - full control of the anchors in the breadcrumbs on the SEO page for filter, we put in the bread crumbs all relating to the product links to filter pages;
  • sitemap.

For filters, which do not participate in the optimization, links will not be created in the filter block.

We have implemented links to the pages of optimized filters to all the places the user expected, these links will be clickable as possible, which will give them more credibility in the eyes of search engines. Your pages will be more competitive in the battle for the search results!

— Anchors management for links to the page of seo filters !!!

Now you can manage the anchors of breadcrumbs links for SEO pages:

  • texts for links in breadcrumbs for page of SEO filter
  • texts for links in breadcrumbs for product pages (Yes... the same how in the largest stores, you can control anchors for product SEO filters pages links

This approach allows to improve users behavior on the product page, to transfer the weight with the right anchor, which will increase the ranking of promoted pages! Use this advantage, your competitors will not have exactly same solution!

— Support for all URLs generation schemes in CS-Cart

  • We have implemented addon in a way, that you will not need to lose your URL generating smodel, the system will be operational for any of the schemes used by CS-Cart by default
  • For cyrillic features variants names automatic transliteration is provided
  • automatic lowercase for URLs generation

Implementation of the module does not require changes in current URLs - the most painless implementation from the existing solutions!

— The most optimal URLs scheme for filter pages

Our solution (unlike another similar solutions) do not create additional levels of nested filters page. For filters or filter combinations we use the next after category level:

sitemame.com/categoryname/filtername/ - the most optimal scheme

Search engines rate too bad pages in a low level, considering them unimportant. In our implementation, we will not have problems with poor rankings of promoted filter pages.

— The order of the selection of filters is not important for result SEO page!

Our addon knew about fact, that from change of places of feauters hash values in URLs - page must not be changed, because it is the same page. Our addon will return the same page regardless of the order in the filter parameter set.

— Fully multilanguage

Our solution for SEO filters is completely multilanguage: we support all possible URLs schemes with multiple languages:

  • individual settings of rules for each language (rules for pages creating)
  • each page (SEO link) can be optimized for each language separately)

Youion can promote queries for all available in your store languages.

— Flexible sitemap:

  • You can choose, which links you need to include to a site map (a specific language or all languages)
  • You can choose, which links: fixed, all unfixed include to a sitemap
  • To generate a site map link is given a unique address. You can add it separately to Google Webmaster Center.

Search engines will quickly see the new pages, ready to promoting. Also, even the deepest by level filter combinations pages are guaranteed to be indexed. Get a better indexing of your pages!

— Speed performance

Our soluthas been tested in the CS-Cart installations with large product catalogs (now the solution works in several stores with the amount of products more than 100 thousand items)

— The development under the control of SEO experts

All the benefits of the addon were obtained in the course of work of a whole group of specialists in the field of e-commerce SEO. We can proudly claim a more thoughtful and comprehensive solutions you will not find. Implementing of similar by deatures solution require more than 200 hours of team work.

— Premium addon support

SEO Module for filters pages was developed as one of the most perspective directions of work of our team. In the future we plan to maintain and develop features for new versions of CS-Cart platform.

We guarantee a rapid response and solve customer problems, which is not available to competing solutions!

— Learning how to work with the addon

After installing the addon, you will see detailed instructions on working with SEO Links for the filters in two modes (automatic and manual creation of pages).


If you have another third party addons, that use the same filter block (filter by color or other modules), you will need to adapt one of them - 1 hour).

After installing the addon it is required to make two changes to the CS-Cart Template files (instructions are available after installation).
