Canonical tags on filtered pages

Hello All,
 
We have one site named http://www.bargains-online.com.au/ & have some categories along with filter option on left side like filter by price & by brand, ect.
 
We have already set rel canonical tags on all filtered pages, but still those all pages showing duplicate page titles and description warning in HTML Improvements section in Google Webmaster Tool.
 
For Example:
http://www.bargains-online.com.au/pressure-cleaners.html
 
We`ve set rel canonical tag on below pages.
http://www.bargains-online.com.au/pressure-cleaners/l/manufacturer:black-eagle.html
http://www.bargains-online.com.au/pressure-cleaners/l/price:2, 100.html
http://www.bargains-online.com.au/pressure-cleaners/l/price:3, 100.html
 
Kindly request if anybody has any solutions for the same, please share with us.
 
Thanks,
Dave

  • Jon Tromans: How long ago did you make the canonical changes? ;
  • Atit Dave:  ; the canonical changes was done before 4-5 months ago.
  • Tony �Tiggerito� McCreath: On your second example I checked the cache and it contained a self referencing canonical:

    <link rel="canonical" href="" />

    So it seems Google has not recrawled those pages since you changed how you do those canonicals.
  • Tim Capper: Canonical's  ;were not properly implemented and need to be recrawled

    Looking at ;/l/price:3,100.html.  ; it was last cached 12 May, with an incorrect Canonical ;

    Patience : )
