Hi

I've got a stack of 404s on my website links but on http.

My shopify website is https.

What do I need to do to fix this please?

Thanks

What do you mean by your website links?

Those http URLs should redirect to their https equivalent, and then 404 if they no longer exist. If the pages have been moved, or you have a related page, then you can add another redirect to give your visitors a better experience and stop them 404ing.

Hi

This is from Moz. There is 73 of them? I need to redirect them individually?

Do I do that in the shopify store or somewhere in my google console?

It looks like you have no website at the moment?

That looks like a backlink error report from Moz. A first step is to try and fix the linking pages so that they don't go to 404s. If that is not possible, setting up a 301 redirect to their new location is the best move. This is done in the Shopify admin under Online Store->Navigation. There is a blue button to the top right called URL redirects.

Also, in the search console check out the Crawl Errors report. That should show you more 404s that could be resolved via a redirect. Make sure you verifiy all site variations in the search console. With and without https. With and without www. Each will report different errors.

It seems other sites are not set up correctly. You want them all to redirect to your true site. I suspect you need to update their nameservers to point to shopify.

That will be why you are seeing all the 404 error reports, as those sites have no pages and do not redirect.
