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:
All of them will have the same canonical link!
Same goes for tags like
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 with Joomla 2.5 and 3.x!
+ Added an option to override automatically generated canonical link for an item or a category
* small tweak for 'prev' and 'next' links
+ support for paginated canonical links with rel='prev' and rel='next' for category and tag views
+ support for Additional Categories for K2 plugin
* support for tags with non-latin characters
* tweaked canonical link for subcategorized articles
+ support for tag views
Couldn't ask anymore, no down side from what we have seen and a very reasonably priced piece of software.
We also found the developers to be extra helpful in giving us free advice about our overall seo strategy and free tips for the site. I don't usually do reviews but these guys deserved it.
He was quick to discover that the K2 version we used was old and the "bug" was due to K2 and not his extension.
Furthermore he implemented the rel previous/next feature I told him in just a couple of days.
It's quite hard for a programmer to impress but Marko did it twice in 2 days.
Well done. Highly recommended!
Very straight forward, very easy to install.
In the beginning there was some issues due to another canonical plugin for the regular content of Joomla I installed before, it did not allow the extension to work properly.
I contacted the developers, they answered immediately and solved my issue in no time. Great Tech Support! If you use K2 this is a must have.
