    Hi there,

    We have built a site using wp-ecommerce, and have installed Yoast plugin.

    The issue we face are on product pages. When going to the 2nd, 3rd page, the canonical link is the current page e.g. '/page/2/' rather than the original page.

    How can we resolve this?

    Here is an example: http://www.occasion4u.co.uk/store/hindu-wedding-cards/page/2/

    Many thanks

    Yes I would like the ability to do this also. Currently there is no way to link back to the original page, it just links to the current page! An SEO plugin should definitely have this option.

    Unless your paginated pages have the exactly the same content on as your first page you shouldn't use the canonical tag on it. The Canonical tag should be used on pages with identical content as mentioned here:
