Ultimate Product Catalogue – WP Plugin–Some SEO issues

So far, the plugin has worked great, and I must say , their support is above and beyond typical wordpress plugin support teams. A couple of minor SEO issues I needed to work around

  • Unfortunately, along with the Product URLs , several ‘Category’ URLs are generated. These may  or may not need to be indexed for your site (in my case, it was more of an annoyance).. To get around this, simply disallow indexing of category URLs – as so (in your robots.txt file):
  • Actually, google’s sitemap submission will provide you with a screen showing your URL parameters. On the google search console itself, you can tell google’s bots to avoid certain URL Params.

disallow */?category=

  • The URL to their SITEMAP, which contains all the products, is:  wp-content/plugins/ultimate-product-catalogue/upcp-site-map.xml   (Submit this as is to Google’s sitemap submission).
