Filter by price pages outranking main pages

I presume this can be fixed by using canonical tags however I am unsure how to go about this.

Problem is filtered by price urls e.g. is showing up in serps instead of which isn't ideal.

I've got the price filter widget in use and the code from the factory is

<li><a href="[server.url type='fullpage' query='price=-50']">Less than 50</a></li>
<li><a href="[server.url type='fullpage' query='price=50-100']">50 ~ 100</a></li>
<li><a href="[server.url type='fullpage' query='price=100-150']">100 ~ 150</a></li>
<li><a href="[server.url type='fullpage' query='price=150-']">More than 150</a></li>

Has anyone got any tips I could try?

Please 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']" />

I tried that and updated the store, disabled caching and refreshed the page. I then loaded one of the price filter pages and checked the source and rel-canonical was not in the source.

To confirm I am using the price filter in the sidebar widget and have added <link rel="canonical" href="[server.url type='page']" /> to My Store > VIEWS > CATEGORY PAGE > Default > View menu > View <head> Elements directly under

<title>[] | </title>
<meta name="description" content="[category.description]" />
<meta name="keywords" content="[category.keywords]" />

Yes, that's correct. What's your store's ID?

Thank you

Your canonical link looks good to me. Even when I filter the category page by price, the canonical link is correct:

HTML Code:

<link rel="canonical" href="http://www.YOURSITE.COM/YOUR-CATEGORY/" />

Maybe my browser was caching the old page. I'll check again tomorrow and thanks for looking for me.
