Shopify tags create new URLs. Lots of duplicate content and 404 errors. HELP

I took a look at Google Search console and noticed that I have over four hundred 404 errors.  Most of these were caused by the new URL that Shopify automatically creates when I use a product tag.  

I found this article.

https://eastsideco.com/shopify-product-tags-bad-for-seo/#

Is this the best fix or should I should I delete all my tags?  

If I delete all my tags, how do I get rid of this Shopify created URLs?


I also believe that Shopify's internal search button pretty much eliminates the need for tags. Is there still a good use for tags?

Any advice or comments appreciated.  Thanks in advance.
