The canonical bug in Joomla 3.0 is a disaster

Post by alagazam » Thu Jan 10, 2013 12:41 pm

The fact that Joomla 3.0 has a canonical link that points to the category and not that single article it should point to is a SEO disaster.

The bug has been known for months. Sadly it still exists.

Does anyone know when - and if - this bug will be sorted out?

I upgraded my site to 3.0 and now my SEO rankings will be totally nuked by this bug. :-(

Seems like there is already a bug report on this. I've already posted confirmation of the bug myself, perhaps you can do as well? ... m_id=29319 - Start improving your conversion rate with an expert review
