noindex tag based on count of the products in a loop

Guest shared this feature

December 27, 2018

It would be nice to have an option in FWW plugin to add noindex tag if product loop has less products than: x.

    This will be added in next update. To flesh this out a bit:

    1) Nofollow tags will be added to hyperlinks if they have < X products - will only apply to attributes - i.e. follow will always happen for product categories 2) Noindex meta will be added to pages with < X products

      Please remember: Don’t mix noindex & rel=canonical on same page

        FWW 2.07
        1) Broken category links:
        2) Mixed ordering of categories and subcategories. Duplicate URLs with the same content. – works ok – doesn’t work

        Why did you change this? It was better before update.

          Hi – sorry – this has been fixed. I’ll release another update once this ordering of taxonomy values has been fixed properly. I changed it so that URLs like /filter/green/blue/ would always be in the correct order, i.e. /filter/blue/green/

            But please DO NOT change the default order of the category/subcategory url structure like before (to subcategory/category in some cases). Apply this to the attributes only or as an option.

            The current structure like ‘filter/maincategory/subcategory’ is better because WE CAN AUTOMATICALLY (if we set the same woo category and ffw slug – btw. it eliminates the duplicates):
            1) create a list of categories with links using wordpress ‘wp_list_categories()’ function
            2) add categories to sitemap
            3) add categories to menu
            4) use in theme functions/shortcodes

    By seo description I mean custom text on the top or bottom of the page just like the description of a category, but showed only with the certain combination of filters:


    if url is ‘/shoes/nike/black’ or active filters are ‘shoes and nike and black’ show ‘description 1’

    if url is ‘/shoes/adidas/white’ or active filters are ‘shoes and adidas and white’ show ‘description 2’

    We wrote about it earlier:

    “I’ll add the ability to edit meta-description, seo description, and even to add/inject product category descriptions to the top or bottom of your shop to create better landing pages.”

    Could you please restore the old url structure?


    and remove the current one:


    Why? It creates duplicate content and the new url structre duplicates the default woocommerce category pages which are automatically added to the sitemap, so we don’t have to add the new links manually again.

      Hi – this was fixed back then. Sorry about the temporary bug.

    This has been implemented in 2.22 due out shortly.

    There’s also a KB about it now:
