Any Data Feed (Google Shopping) Experts For Custom Products?

19 June 2019 - 03:43 AM

We have about 13,000 products on our site that are all customizable.  Over the years I have tried to figure out how to get my data feed to work with Google Shopping with these products but no luck.  I know it's possible since I see all kinds of custom items in there that are on Etsy, eBay and even some of my competition's sites but not sure how to do it.  Anyone have a suggestion?

Duplicate Rel-Canonical On Some Pages But Not All

02 June 2019 - 10:26 PM

Google has been doing some strange things to my rankings for some categories lately.  Essentially something I normally rank on the first page for I will get moved to the second or third page (or lower) because Google changes a relevant category page to what they say is a better page that is my home page.  But my home page doesn't really have anything to do with these search terms so it is moved down the rankings.  When I re-submit the proper url Google says it chose my homepage as canonical over what my site says is canonical.  Rankings go back to normal when I do this but with about 1000 categories it is impossible to keep track of what ones are changing and when I need to do a resubmit.  Anyway, I reached out for some SEO help and was told the following:


Well I just took a look at your site. It has an issue and strange at that. Here let me show you what I mean. See the image below. It has a double canonical. The fact that you have a dbl canonical is the issue. You need to fix this. This is a coding error. This double canonical is also present on all pages I check. Also all of your paginated content for comic decals, they all point to the 1st page of product as the canonical. This isn't the most optimal setup btw.

So I checked into what they said and it is true for a LOT of my category pages and even product pages.  Many have duplicate "HTML Rel-Canonical" tags from what this plug in (LinkResearchTools/Link Redirect Trace) is showing me.  Odd that about 1/4 of my page/categories/products are showing the duplicate canonical.


Not sure I totally understand about the comment "they all point to the 1st page of the product as canonical" either.


I do have the SEO ultimage add-on but disabling that doesn't seem to fix anything so that doesn't appear to be causing the issue.


The page I'm referring to is https://fastdecals.c...cartoon-decals/but this is happening all over the site.  Any help or input would be appreciated.
