Google Duplicate Content Manager
Version 1.0 alpha

What is it for?

Google webmaster tools is currently showing duplicate title/descriptions caused by basic oscommerce functions. This script intends to both remove the duplicates then prevent reoccurance.
The URL I want indexed ..


Duplicates: -





ad infinitum.

There are two modes available:

$IhaveDuplicateContent = true; Exists to remove duplicate titles and descriptions from Google by adding relevant text to the front of title/description/keywords creating a unique page.

$IhaveDuplicateContent = false; Exists to prevent duplicates occuring in the first instance.

NOTE: This service does not cater for duplicate links caused by the creation of duplicate cPaths by adding a category to multiple parents. This is a point for future discussion.

Other Settings:

Turn service On/Off

Array of $_GET variables to react to.


Very simple to install:

Upload one class file.

Add a line to the bottom of application_top.php

add 1 line above the code that prints your meta in index.php (and potentially other files)

add 2 lines below the code that prints your meta in index.php.


Test Before You Add/Change any Files:

Included is a standalone test file that you can simply upload to your server .. call it directly and it will give instructions on how to test.
