301 redirects for shopify running in /folder

I'm working with a client on SEO for their website and shopify site and we'd like them to share a domain ie clientdomain.com has wordpress on it and clientdomain.com/shop has shopify.

Have setup a test harness using the approach described here:

https://www.goodtoseo.com/how-to-run-shopify-on-a-subfolder/#:~:text=As%20Shopify%20is%20a%20self,by....

....to see if we could get it working and it seems to be (shop.salesbazooka.com is the test harness setup, runs in the folder (reverse proxy) on salesbazooka.com/shop) - but to get requests to shop.salesbazooka.com landing on on the /shop page we used a javascript redirect to redirect people from shop.salesbazooka.com to salesbazooka.com/shop (in the theme files on shopify).   

While it all seems to work fine, ideally for better SEO would like to use a 301 redirect from shop.salesbazooka.com --> salesbazooka.com/shop and not a javascript redirect.   The challenge I have is that as shop.salesbazooka.com is controlled by shopify - it seems I need to setup the 301 on shopify but can't seem to do so (the redirect functionality available via shopify / API doesn't appear to support it?).   

Does anyone know if this type of 301 is possible to setup on shopify and if so, how to do it.

Hi

 

Did you manage to figure this out?

I am looking to do something similar

 

I'd like to redirect: Primarydomain.com/language to newdomain.com

so that Primarydomain.com/language/product..  would 301 to the matching newdomain.com/product.. 

 

any help would be appreciated, currently have a full site language duplication that I need to sort out this way..

 

thanks

Hi @pbaddock @SamuelFi 

 

Please follow the following steps

 

1) click on navigation under online store

2) click on view URL redirects

3) Next click on create url redirect

 

That should setup the redirection for your shopify store.

Hi

Thanks for the help

I am looking to redirect entire folder, mydomain.com/redirect-everything-here

and looking for a rule based method where 1 rule would take

 

mydomain.com/redirect-everything-here

mydomain.com/redirect-everything-here/p1

mydomain.com/redirect-everything-here/p2

mydomain.com/redirect-everything-here/p3

mydomain.com/redirect-everything-here/p4

 

and redirect them all to

 

newdomain.com/

newdomain.com//p1

newdomain.com/p2

newdomain.com/p3

newdomain.com/p4

 

or if thats not possible then I'd like to upload a csv and prepare the rules with excel before hand. I sopke with support and they mentioned some import optin but I dont see anything like that

 

Would you happen to know if thats possible?

Thanks

Hi

 

Unfortuantely it turns out you can only redirect urls that are 404.

So I cant use the redirect functionality in the backend GUI  (I applied all redirections and the platform simply does not execute them )

 

so open for ideas.
