KissMT Dynamic SEO Meta & Canonical Header Tags

Recommended Posts

Update: Ok to add OpenGraph meta tags, I have modified this file :... /includes/modules/kiss_meta_tags/classes/kiss_meta_tags_class.php and managed to output the OpenGraph tags using the existing code there, as follows:

/**

* Output the final meta tags

*/

public function output() {

echo '<title>' . $this->title . '</title>' . PHP_EOL .

'<meta name="description" content="' . $this->description . '"' . $this->html_end . PHP_EOL .

'<meta name="keywords" content="' . $this->keywords . '"' . $this->html_end . PHP_EOL;

$this->canonical();

// Added for OpenGraph

echo '<meta property="og:title" content="' . $this-> title . '"' . $this->html_end . PHP_EOL .

'<meta property="og:site-name" content="' . STORE_NAME . '"' . $this->html_end . PHP_EOL .

'<meta property="og:type" content="product"' . $this->html_end . PHP_EOL .

'<meta property="og:url" content="' . $this->canonical . '"' . $this->html_end . PHP_EOL .

'<meta property="og:description" content="' . $this->description . '"' . $this->html_end . PHP_EOL .

'<meta property="og:image" content="' . DIR_WS_IMAGES . $this->products_image . '"' . $this->html_end . PHP_EOL;

}

 

That works okay..., except the last line (in bold) does not create a valid image link. How do I pass image information to that chunk of code? I did update the database query to include the image name, in this file: .../includes/modules/kiss_meta_tags/modules/product_info.php. But I do not understand how to pass the retrieved image name into the kiss_meta_tags_class.php . What sort of syntax do I use, please? $this->products_image does not seem to work :(

Why not add the Opengraph header_tag module, would take you 1 minute.

From http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/8864

 

And FYI, I have the SEO Reloaded module working perfectly with USU5 Pro.

Thank you, I will look again at the SEO Reloaded "OpenGraph" module. But don't you have to have the entire mod installed and working, before the OpenGraph part will work?

 

In the meantime, I just cobbled together a new chunk called happy_headers.php. lol It has yet another database call in it ... but all the other header modules I looked at do as well :-/ I wish I could combine all those database calls into one, but I simply don't know how.

You can use it without installing the rest of it. The install of just the opengraph module is less than 1 minute.

I'm experiencing the following issue

 

example:

 

/category-name-c-26_143.html = Loads correct category

/category-name-c-2fsgsdfsdf6_143.html = Redirects to correct URL above

/category-name-c-2684286485568536576156_143.html = Loads correct category products but does not 301 redirect to the correct URL, resulting in duplicate content

 

I'd like the 3rd example to properly redirect to the correct URL (or at least specify the correct canonical tag) to avoid potential duplicate content penalties.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Mine seems to be working great except on the home page itself (most important) it creates nonsense tags, like "my, great, wiggets" for keyword tag, etc. Also it doesn't seem to do anything for my "additional" pages like "about_us" etc.
