Google Duplicate Content Manager
Version 1.0 alpha
What is it for?
Google webmaster tools is currently showing duplicate title/descriptions caused by basic oscommerce functions. This script intends to both remove the duplicates then prevent reoccurance.
The URL I want indexed ..
There are two modes available:
$IhaveDuplicateContent = true; Exists to remove duplicate titles and descriptions from Google by adding relevant text to the front of title/description/keywords creating a unique page.
$IhaveDuplicateContent = false; Exists to prevent duplicates occuring in the first instance.
NOTE: This service does not cater for duplicate links caused by the creation of duplicate cPaths by adding a category to multiple parents. This is a point for future discussion.
Turn service On/Off
Array of $_GET variables to react to.
Very simple to install:
Upload one class file.
Add a line to the bottom of application_top.php
add 1 line above the code that prints your meta in index.php (and potentially other files)
add 2 lines below the code that prints your meta in index.php.
Test Before You Add/Change any Files:
