For users of the TourCMS tour operator ecommerce platform
I just launched a second web site based on TourCMS. All is fine and I'm happy :-)
But now I have a question: how to manage all the content so it could be SEO friendly.
Let's say my web site A is primary and web site B is secondary. Some of tours are displayed on both websites.
As far as I understand I should use canonical tags to inform spiders that the content is not a plagiarism, e.g.:
<link rel="canonical" href="http://www.website-a.com/product.tour-1"/>
What kind of TourCMS Element Tags should I use for that? Could anybody help me with this?
Many thanks in advance :)
I'm not an expert but I believe that's a good step to take, actually that's what we do on our demo website TourSift.
Are you using CMS templates or API to power your secondary (B) website?
I'm using CMS templates. I think I would need a tag returning the url of the page of the main web site (web site A in my example), something like
<link rel="canonical" href="<$TourCMStour output="t_tour_url"$>">. But I need to input also a TourCMS channel of the web site A, right?
Yes, that's it. You can easily pull information out from other channels/websites, just need to get the Channel ID for that website (from "Channel Manager") in TourCMS. Then, you would have something like:
<link rel="canonical" href="<$TourCMStour output="t_tour_url" website_id="WEBSITE_ID_HERE"$>">
Thank you very much Paul. This is exactly what I needed. I tried this code on my web site. All is fine now!
