View Full Version : Duplicate content (listings) issue within Geo Filtering

I have noticed an issue with duplicate listings when using Geo Filtering.

As you can see below, the same listing uses different URLs:


The problem is that Google Panda will give a Penalty to such website with pages full of duplicate content (listings).

The best practice is to place all Listings under separate Directory “/listings/”, as shown on example below:

I think it's better that it only uses geofiltering. If you are using the plugin you are using it for a reason.
Im using it to sort listings based on what state and county the listing are in, i dont really want it to show up as a "normal" link

instead of

The link below are from swedens bigget sell site.

As you can see it have /blekinge/ wich is a state in sweden. This is better for location SEO

So if we use the geo plugin it should automaticly turn of the normal links and only use the geo links.

I have just started on the SEO section of my site as the site is done, i see some SEO problems with the script

I will try to find way to do links depending on listing location and not of current applied location, it will solve the issue and it's the only right way i see to solve it.

Hope it will be done in the next plugin update.

As you can see below, the same categories use different URLs:

Is it possible to block categories with normal links and display only categories with locations (Geo Filtering)?
