    asoKey parameter


    Hi everyone

    I have the canonical tag in my pages and in the google console I have set up asoKey parameter to tell that it does NOT change the content of the page. The parameter is used to track back filters on rent apartments website.

    The problem that I got it is that google seems not to read the canonical and indexed pages with the asoKey parameter

    How can I tell the spider that URL with the asoKey parameterit is the same URL that the canonical tag?

    Thanks

    It just finally dawned on me your question......

    Google will indeed index the pages that use the parameter. You would have to put no-index on that page to stop Google, but that will not stop Google from crawling it just indexing it . That is probably not the best idea. I would think you do want the page indexed btw, because it probably has value to your "User Base", so the rel=canonical is use to tell Google "Hey, any juice going to this page, send it to the URL in the canonical.

    This is so the page will not cannibalize your keywords and juice... it will all go to the rel canonical page.

    ps... you could use your robots.txt disallow /*?* this would also work, but again, I think you do want the page indexed. I could be wrong...

    Edited to add...
    I forgot to answer your question competely... Google a great tool !!!!

    KnowOneSpecial Exactly I want to get the link juice from the canonical tag but the pages indexed with parameters are many and it come back as 404 so we have a warning that they are too many 404 errors

    Now that makes a difference, if the urls are reporting 404.

    Do to they actually go to a 404 not found page or do you return the status code 404 and display the proper page.???

    Post an example link, do not put http or https or www in the urls you post.
