So even with the robots.txt I am getting duplicate meta descriptions issues in webmaster tools
My robots.txt looks like this:

Code: Select all

user-agent: *
Disallow: /*&limit
Disallow: /*&sort
Disallow: /*?route=checkout/
Disallow: /*?route=account/
Disallow: /*?route=product/search
Disallow: /*?route=affiliate/


In webmaster tools I see duplicate meta descriptions for

mysite.com/category
mysite.com/category?limit...
mysite.com/category?sort...

....for just about every category

Shouldnt the robots.txt be like :

Code: Select all

user-agent: *
Disallow: /*?limit
Disallow: /*?sort
Disallow: /*?route=checkout/
Disallow: /*?route=account/
Disallow: /*?route=product/search
Disallow: /*?route=affiliate/
with ? for limit and sort instead of & ?

Thank you.

You should place both like follows:

Code: Select all

Disallow: /*&limit
Disallow: /*&sort
Disallow: /*?limit
Disallow: /*?sort
