Duplicate Indexing Problems

I'm getting duplicate pages on my site even though I'm using this code in my page template.

[store.if page="on"]
<meta name="robots" content="noindex,follow" />'

Google is indexing the wrong URL and it's completely killed my rankings. Is there something wrong with the code?

Here's an example of the two pages Google is grabbing...


and it's indexing the url with /?ppp=48 on it.

Here's another example of duplicate pages Google is finding....

How can I fix this indexing issues with Google?

The use of the canonical tag will probably help. Try adding the following code here: The Factory > Your Store > VIEWS > CATEGORY PAGE > Default > View menu > View <head> Elements

HTML Code:

<link rel="canonical" href="[server.url type='page']" />

Eric, isn't it a problem to have two canonical tags in the same page source code?

I'm using a report tool and it's reporting two different canonical results based on if it's the home page or a category page. Home page resolves correctly but the category page results in saying that the canonical tag doesn't match this URL.

After I added the code above I reran the report and it didn't resolve the issue but it did add a second references in the code to the canonical tag (one to the specific category url).

Should I leave your code and shut off the canonical tag in AIOSEO so I only have one canonical tag showing?

I didn't realize you were running AIOSEO. Try this: /showthread.php?t=3305

Oh man. I disabled the plugin a month or so ago trying to implement a different plugin and then went back to AIOSEO when the other one wasn't working correctly. I never thought that box would come unchecked so I didn't even think about looking there. It was unchecked and is now fixed. Hopefully things will go back to normal soon. Thanks Eric!
