    Hey guys,

    I have a website I'm doing for a client, their website has a lot of categories and I've found a possible duplicate content issue with the woocommerce categories.

    Because there are sub categories, woocommerce has created two URLs for this category, the issue is, both of these pages are exactly the same and have the exact same content:

    Code:
    http://www.website.com/products/cooking-equipment/kebab-machine/
    http://www.website.com/products/kebab-machine/
    Is this going to cause issues? Will Google see this as duplicate content or is this okay?

    Thanks!

    This will be duplicate content.

    Either add a canonical tag or use a 301 redirect to fix it.
