I have attached the project details in a text file, there were too many characters & I could not post it, so here below is just a summary of this project, please see the attached file for Duplicate Conent - Canonical URL Issues with all the project detail. There is another file attached, the htaccess file that has to be fixed.
So I need a seo expert that knows opencart, my site has been around since 1999 & was going great till google came out with their new panda & penguin algorithms & basically killed my site and my business last fall. So anyway maybe late March early April this year I deleted the old site & created a new site from scratch in Opencart version 22.214.171.124 & right now only has 200 prdts in it, I used all of opencarts built in seo methods, friendly urls, and bought a module called seo pack pro. But I do not see any change in the sites traffic, in fact it is worse now, the site is basically dead in the water, so I have been using seo online audit tools & have fixed some things myself but the main problem I see is besides I need more back links & content, (I am saving back links for another project)is the way Opencart is built it is creating multiple urls for categories & products and home page. The url structure has to be changed to stop creating duplicate content, it has a Canonical url problem. If I do a test using this tool http://www.virante.org/seo-tools/duplicate-content for any of my web pages they all come up with duplicate content & google I am assuming has penalized the site because of that, but in my webmaster tools, I have no messages from them about that but this has to be a major problem to be fixed so I have fooled around with a few lines of code in the htaccess file & it looks like I fixed my home page, but it looks sloppy, I need someone to go in their & fix that code & double check I did it right. I also need to make sure that the home page and all the categories have a trailing slash for seo purposes. I do not want the trailing slash after any products. And "height" / "width" attribute is missing in 100% images probably a 1 line fix and just check my robot.txt file to make sure if sitemap url is correct, the url is in the attached file. Lastly when someone places an order on my site it goes to missing orders instead of pending orders, I need that fixed. www vs. non-www, I am going with www . I know this is just a start to help build google page rank also & I know it takes time to see results but these things have to be fixed before I really start adding more products & content to the site.Plus some other minor fixes needed.
The site is http://www.MrToys.com
Me personally, I think it should take a few hours if that, just a few lines of code in htacess & a few lines of code in other opencart pages.
Again please see the attached file for Duplicate Conent - Canonical URL Issues with all the project detail. There is another file attached, the htaccess file that has to be fixed.
