How to import the same product into multiple categories
Posted by Anton Pachkine on 24 February 2012 03:38 PM

It's not a good idea to have multiple copies of the same product just to show that product in multiple categories. This will create a mess in the store, especially if you manage your inventory levels and your pages will be downgraded by Google for the duplicate content.

Much cleaner and safer way is to assing a product to the multiple categories using "Additional categories" section:

or if you are importing your products, add extra categories under the main one in the import file:
