Some viewlets to do SEO work in Plone sites

Project description


This product adds some viewlet to improve SEO in Plone sites:

  • Meta tag to tell robots “noindex, follow” the batch pages

  • Canonical url link for all pages. We have followed these rules for canonical urls:

    • For normal content, the url is the object’s url without the trailing ‘/’:

      • ->

    • Default page (and its trailing ‘/’) is removed from the canonical url:

      • -> (aggregator is the default page of news)

      • -> (aggregator is the default page of news)

    • View or template name is preserved in the canonical url:

      • ->

      • ->

  • Customized batching template to create batching base urls based on canonical urls.

Tested with Plone 4.2.x. It should work all previous Plone 4 versions, but it’s untested.

In Plone 4.3.x the changes in batching template will not be available, because of the use of plone.batching product and this product provides replacement just for template.
