Joomla tags with some templates may cause duplicate content, which we all know is a problem for Google and other search engines. Here is an example.
The tags which show up with Artisteer templates under a content item generate an sef like this.
The sef generated by the Joomla tag menu link generates a link like this.
This is core router issue which we didn't have time to resolve at this writing. However, the quick fix is to use a .htaccess rule. Here it is.
RedirectMatch 301 ^/component/tags/tag/(.*)$ /tags/$1
What this does is look for urls with /component/tags/tag/ and rewrites it as /tags/.
This will resolve the duplicate content issue.
*To help Google find your TAGS, be sure to add a menu link somewhere, and be sure to install this TAG extension for xmap.
*A related issue is the menu tag items do not have unique titles. We are looking into that as well.
Recently we did a new install to Joomla 3.4. All was well. After we installed xmap we started getting an error in the admin control panel. It looked like this.
joomla 3.4 _weblinks' doesn't exist
Turns out Joomla 3.4 no longer installs the previously default Weblinks component, which we never used anyway. But, apparently, xmap references it. The easy solution was to install the weblinks component which can be found here. https://github.com/joomla-extensions/weblinks/releases
Just install it, and the error goes away.
