On the dev site, rel="canonical" is being used incorrectly.


<link href='https://dev.trueloaded.co.uk/men-s' rel='canonical' />

is not the canonical of:

https://dev.trueloaded.co.uk/men-s?page=2&amp;sort=pd

If this is a module of V4 then it ought not to be configured in the on state.

Google won't accept this choice of canonical, and if it did it will cause product pages to be starved of link equity and drop them out of the index.

Thanks for this comment, will pass this to the development team

Ashley, we have checked the situation with canonical with an SEO / PPC expert and also used SEMRUSH to scan a demo website. Happy to say that no issues or errors were reported. 

Would be happy to discuss this issue with you further, to ensure nothing stops osCommerce websites from achieving top positions in Google

Your SEO expert is wrong on this one. There's no scan you can run that will generate errors.

If you configure like this, Google will reject your choice of canonical, and place instead what it believes to be the canonical. Anyone with access to webmaster tools on a live site will be able to confirm this with the inspection tool.

Hello, For multi-language sites, it is contemplated to write the URL tags in different languages of the same product, category or index:
link rel = "alternate" hreflang = "XX"

<link rel="alternate" hreflang="fr" href="https://www.xxx.com/fr/xxx.html" />      
<link rel="alternate" hreflang="it" href="https://www.xxx.com/it/xxx.html" />  
<link rel="alternate" hreflang="en" href="https://www.xxx.com/en/xxx.html" /> 

Thanks.

I want to ask will there be BCC email section, as trustpilot verified reviews it can only be verified if the we put the link from trustpilot into the BCC section.

Also when are you planning to launch the new version?

I would like the ability to exclude certain content pages/categories/products from the xml sitemap. Maybe add that to the SEO tab (exclude from sitemap)

This is useful when you dont want the search engines to know about specific products or pages
