2 Urls for same image?
« on: December 04, 2013, 02:16:44 am »

hey Folks,

I'm still struggling to solve things with this stupid SEO plugin I installed. This problem I'm seeing may or may not be related to that.

I'm seeing google tell me I have a  lot of pages with duplicate title tags .. some of that is a function of bulk key wording applications, which I can remedy in my own time. But I'm also seeing google tell me these 2 pages have duplicate title tags

the site is http://www.skolaiimages.com/

and so I'm uploading images to galleries and getting both this url

/stock/displayimage-6657-Mature-polar-bear-exits-the-Beaufort-Sea.html

and this url

/stock/displayimage-122-6657-Mature-polar-bear-exits-the-Beaufort-Sea.html

How is google finding an image page displayed without the album # in the url? Is this an architectural thing in cpg? I know that the SEO plugin stupidly doesn't specify exact urls, and hence we could actually change any of those characters in the url after [6657] and it would display the same page ... but how is google finding this without any link to the first url posted above?

I know I can deactivate the plugin, but I've got so many links around my site and my other business site pointing to albums and so on it'd be a major headache to do and I'd lose a lot of google juice.

Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks so much.

Cheers

Carl

Technically Coppermine doesn't need the album parameter. If it's omitted Coppermine displays the picture in its actual album content. The album parameter is needed when viewing meta albums, that's the main reason why it exists.

Just have a look at the HTML source of your example image and you'll find

Hey André

Ahhh .. thanks so much. I see the canonical tag .. I wonder why google would be indicating "duplicate title tags" for that then? I'm seeing it for a number of pages .. For some reason google is saying  I shouldn't have duplicate titles for those pages.

I appreciate that you try to address so many questions on the forum. This is a HUGE improvement over the way cpg forums were a 5-10 years back. Thank you.

This can be marked solved.

Cheers

For future reference, that is something you can do yourself. It is a bit hidden in the bar beneath your posts but there is a button to do just that.

It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potatoes.

hey Phil

Sorry .. I still don't see it. I actually asked this on another thread a while ago, too, and my memory was that someone said I or non-admin folks could not do that? Is that wrong, or did it change? Where's the button to mark it solved?

Thanks
