[resolved] Only 1 URL per Image/Album for Search Engines?

Right now I have my robots.txt restricting access to my gallery (which is in /photos off of the home page directory).  My images are highly indexed by search engines and before I release them onto it, I want to figure out how to only have 1 index per image.  Likewise I only want 1 index per album.  For example, for the image:

domain/photos/picture/20120520_194631860/category/isla_carmen_bcs_mexico

Ideally I only want it indexed by:

domain/photos/picture/20120520_194631860  (Note I'd accept the above URL)

and the album indexed by:

domain/photos/index/category/isla_carmen_bcs_mexico

The problem is that these images/albums can be indexed via slideshows, favorites, tags, most visited, various sized images, etc.  Does anyone have any suggestions on how to limit this and/or what all of the URL options that I need to restrict are?

Re: [resolved] Only 1 URL per Image/Album for Search Engines?

hello,
this is useless, because Piwigo use the "canonical" meta tag (header.tpl line 43)

if Search Engines are well coded (I assume they are !) they use this canonical url instead of page url when available

Re: [resolved] Only 1 URL per Image/Album for Search Engines?

I'm using Stripped and I see no <link rel="canonical"> tags in my generated HTML, or are you relying on the search engines to normalize the URL?

As far as line 43 in header.tpl, this is what I see starting at line 42

Code:

{if isset($U_PREFETCH)          }<link rel="prefetch" href="{$U_PREFETCH}">{/if}

{if not empty($page_refresh)    }<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="{$page_refresh.TIME};url={$page_refresh.U_REFRESH}">{/if}

{get_combined_scripts load='header'}

What am I looking for?

Re: [resolved] Only 1 URL per Image/Album for Search Engines?

Ah, I just looked at the "default" template and see

Code:

{if isset($U_CANONICAL)}<link rel="canonical" href="{$U_CANONICAL}">{/if}

Why doesn't stripped use this?

I don't know what conical is... And when was this introduced in the templates.

Thanks! 

I inserted

Code:

{if isset($U_CANONICAL)}<link rel="canonical" href="{$U_CANONICAL}">{/if}

into the stripped header and it does exactly what I was asking for.

Re: [resolved] Only 1 URL per Image/Album for Search Engines?

I have the same problem with stripped theme. I have to insert

Code:

{if isset($U_CANONICAL)}<link rel="canonical" href="{$U_CANONICAL}">{/if}

after prefetch?

Thanks
