Canonical Links for K2

October 19th, 2013

Do you care about SEO? Are you tired of being penalized by Google for having a duplicate content?

With our plugin you will get real canonical links for your K2 articles/tags/categories. We’ve tried all other solutions, tried Joomla 3 native solution, and found out that they all had issues, as reported on various forums around the web.

We care about SEO, so we decided to develop our own plugin, to have real K2 canonical links.

Don’t worry anymore if you can reach a K2 article with links like:

www.example.com/article
www.example.com/category/article
www.example.com/tag1/article
www.example.com/tag2/article

All of them will have the same canonical link!

Same goes for tags like

www.example.com/tag1
www.example.com/category1/tag/tag1
www.example.com/category2/tag/tag1

or categories

www.example.com/category2
www.example.com/category1/content/category2

etc.

Furthermore, it will detect if an article/tag/category has a direct link in the menu and use it as the canonical version, attention is payed so that the most appropriate link is chosen!

Works for Joomla 2.5 and 3.x!
