Tips for avoid =ASC and =DESC in search Google results?

This topic has been marked as resolved.

Dear ThemeBurn support,

I´m trying to adjust the details for the robots.txt file for my Opencart webshop, so it´s working as good as possible together with Google webmaster tools. I still get varnings for double meta descriptions and also double heading tags regarding to following:

?sort=p.model&order=ASC
?sort=rating&order=DESC
?sort=pd.name&order=ASC
?limit=75

My robots.txt details is as following:

user-agent: *
Disallow: /*&limit
Disallow: /*?limit
Disallow: /*?sort
Disallow: /*&sort
Disallow: /*?order
Disallow: /*&order
Disallow: /*?price
Disallow: /*&price
Disallow: /*?brand_tabletpc
Disallow: /*&brand_tabletpc
Disallow: /*?color_default
Disallow: /*&color_default
Disallow: /*?filter_tag
Disallow: /*&filter_tag
Disallow: /*?mode
Disallow: /*&mode
Disallow: /*?cat
Disallow: /*&cat
Disallow: /*?dir
Disallow: /*&dir
Disallow: /*?color
Disallow: /*&color
Disallow: /*?product_id
Disallow: /*&product_id
Disallow: /*?minprice
Disallow: /*&minprice
Disallow: /*?maxprice
Disallow: /*&maxprice
Disallow: /*?route=checkout/
Disallow: /*?route=account/
Disallow: /*?route=product/search
Disallow: /*?page=1
Disallow: /*&create=1
Disallow: /?route=information/contact
Disallow: /*?route=affiliate/
Disallow: /*?keyword
Disallow: /*?av
Disallow: /admin/
Disallow: /system/
Disallow: /catalog/

Do you guys have some tips to avoid the errors? Do I need to complete the robots.txt file with some more details?

Best regards
Thomas

Hi Thomas,

We haven’t made any experiments about disallowing routes in robots.txt. There are a couple of handy topics in the official OpenCart forums that discuss the same problem:

Thanks for your answer!

I have really tried to read about this but without success… Google seems to index all of the different sort results, and that´s what I have “problem” with.

I don´t know how it´s working “behind the scenes” but if feels like the sort function should be disabled. Maybe it´s wrong solution, but what do you think happen if I disable the sort function in my web shop? Is this one option to do?

Best regards Thomas

Hi Thomas,

Please have in mind that once indexed, it may take some time to get these pages out of Google’s database.

We’ve attached the robots file that we use in several projects and works with us. It is not different from what you’ve posted though.

Hello!

I´m going to look at the robots.txt file and compare a little bit with the file I´m using.

Thanks again!

Best regards Thomas
