I launch my shop 2 month ago and while checking the SEO in the search console, i discovered that a lot of unwanted url where viewed by google.
After fiew research i saw that they generated by tags attributes so:
(The pattern of those url was : mydomainename.com/collections/categoryname/tags)
1/ I removed the tags navigation
I removed all access to those url from the theme and the widget but they're still manually reachable. So google will continue to come on them
2/remove product tags
I completely removed the tags from the backoffice of my products. I also had to change th collection type from filteted collection to manual collection.
But the url can still be reachable despites the tags aren't viewable in the backend anymore.
3/ I tried to create redirections but because the url exist shopify doesn't execute the redirection.
Can anybody help please ?
