Hello everyone. I want to make my store`s URLs shorter and more understandable for Google.

Right now it looks like that: domain/collections/category/products/product

I want to remove "collections" and "products" steps from URL to make it just domain/category/product.

Is this possible?

Hey there,

 

Unfortunately this is not easy to do. 

 

Some stores do a complete overhaul of their website by building custom UI/UX that is not dependent on the Shopify out of the box storefront framework. You can build your own routing if you do that, but in the context of the more traditional Shopify store you are restricted to the url structure Shopify provides.

Same here, as per https://neilpatel.com/blog/seo-urls, he says to restrict the url to 2 folders and try to have a url around 50 characters to improve SEO ranking.  Because of the shopify url structure I have up to 3 folders and reach 56 characters before even typing my product handle.
