How can I avoid duplicate page issues affecting my SEO rankings?

Hi All,

 

I am ranking in 10th position for the term "Hypnobirthing Candle".

 

I have a Hypnobirthing Candle landing page (https://aysiya.com/collections/hypnobirthing-candle, however, Google is picking up this page > https://aysiya.com/collections/hypnobirthing-candle/pastel-candles. The content on the page is an entire duplicate of the Hypnobirthing Candle page.

 

The organic text ad looks like this:

I'm not sure where or how I have Tagged "pastel candles" . Or, how, or why, it would be creating duplicate pages on the site. 

 

Any help on this would be most appreciated! 

 

Many thanks,

 

Lauren

Hello @Aysiya ,

 

Tagged "pastel candles" in SERP is coming due to this page: https://aysiya.com/collections/hypnobirthing-candle/pastel-candles

Now, this page is coming because of "filter" variable which you are using.

Now, if you see this page, after clicking on anyone in the filter list, your store is creating a separate page for it. This is the reason, why Google is showing Tagged term in SERP. 

 

Now, why Google is picking this URL https://aysiya.com/collections/hypnobirthing-candle/pastel-candles over this: https://aysiya.com/collections/hypnobirthing-candle just because of the URL.
