Hello All
We are haing an isseu with Impulse, as we arealise that evry tyme a filter is select the theme change url addin the name of the filter 

For ecample if we are inside the Shirt collection 
domain/collections/shirts
and we press on a filter , example ( colour Red ) 
the links become 
domain/collections/shirts/red

this for us us a problem as all of those links are indexed from Google and generates thousands of URL

There is a way to solve the issuue?

We were thinking about adding a no index but we don't know how we can apply it only ot the filtered URL

Hi @MarcoMatty

Which tool did you use to check if these URLs are indexable, normally URLs created from filters are already disallowed in robots.txt file.

However, if you want to de-index all filtered URLs, you can edit your robots.txt file, simply add another Disallow protocol for pages having url like domain/collection/shirt/variant

 

Let me know if my answer is of any help with a thumb up or like. Cheers
