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

Even user views are supported!

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!

Value for money

Resolving so many problem for that price is a gift !

I used this to: I installed this plugin on a website i just updated from J 2.5 to J3.4 - During this updating, i change some organisation in menu. This plugin helped to resolve 404 as I let the K2 items ID in the URL.

I just bought this yesterday. Installed it and found that it worked perfectly as advertised. Extremely quick to install, extremely lightweight and fast. Inspected the html code and confirmed that it was making all the necessary changes. The navigation links worked perfectly, as per google's recommendations. The canonical links worked beautifully. I then asked the developer whether it was possible to make a slight "improvement' - ie: overriding the category to which all tag urls are canonized. Within minutes, he came up with a new version that not only allows you to manually select the category, but he also put in an option to do a 301 redirect. This is perfect. Good riddance to the crazy k2 duplicate tag problem! Anyone using K2 should have this installed by default! Fantastic extension, and extremely intelligent and helpful developer! 5 stars!


Great extension

After struggling with K2 and the strange URL's it generates I stumbled upon this extension. What a surprise. Not only does it fix the problems with the URL's it certainly has an immediate effect on SEO. Thanks to Marko for extremely great support. If you haven't tried this plug-in yet then do it.


I needed a solution for duplicate content with K2. I decided to use the Canonical Links for K2. It works very good. Marko from ManageCMS done a very good job. He was very supportive of my project. Many thanks.


I had been looking around for a solution for my duplicate K2 content links going out of control!



This extensions is awesome and hints to Google EXACTLY where the correct k2 item link is regardless of how many alternate links there are.

In conclusion making your K2 Site more SEO Friendly!



Marko gives great support and is very willing to help and resolve issues and questions pertaining to the extension.

Well done! If you have a K2 site, this is a MUST-GET extension.



I'm looking forward to seeing more extensions from "ManageCMS":D
