Magento gives you the ability to add the name of categories to path for product URL’s. Because Magento doesn’t support this functionality very well – it creates duplicate content issues – it is a very good idea to disable this.

To do this, go to System => Configuration => Catalog => Catalog => Search Engine Optimization and set "Use categories path for product URL’s" to “no”.

Now it’s time to set the details for each category. Go to Catalog => Manage Categories. The most important fields are:

  • Meta Description: put an attractive description here; Keep in mind that people will see the description in the result listings of search engines.
  • Page Title: keep this empty to use the category name including parents categories. When you customize it, the title will be exactly like your input, without the parent category.
  • URL Key: try to keep a short but keyword rich URL. Removing stop words like “the”, “and”, “for” etc. is usually a good idea. Also note that you can set this only for all store views, for a multi-language store you should keep it language independent.

For each store view you can specify the Name, Description, Page Title and Meta data. For multi-language stores this is really a great feature.
