Hi, 

Is there any way to remove /Pages from URL.Currently, my page URL is ".com/pages/about-us" i want to change to ".com/about-us".I tried URL redirect method Navigation settings and edit the code from theme.liquid to like this,

{% if template contains 'collection' and current_tags %}
<meta name="robots" content="noindex" />
<link rel="canonical" href="{{ shop.url }}{{ collection.url }}" />
{% else %}
<link rel="canonical" href="{{ canonical_url }}" />
{% endif %}

Still it did not work. Please help me.Thank you.

Please don't be arrogant and ignore a very common request. At least be transparent about why it's not updated.

Pleaseeeeeeee get rid of the unnecessary url paths. I've got more chance of having my pages show up on the TV than I do Google right now.

It's not possible. However it won't negatively impact your SEO, so don't worry.

Shopify is a billions dollar business, they have everything setup in the best way possible out of the box to make you thrive.

I'm currently testing Shopify and unfortunately I noticed exactly this problem with the URL paths. We are currently using Magento and are on the first page with some content pages. With this problem we would definitely lose places on google and thus also less sales. I would love to switch to Shopify, but please give us the opportunity. Not only shop operators would benefit from it, but Shopify itself too.

Please give us a quick update.

Thank you

Hi,

I'm just one more developer in the sea of everybody who needs this feature.

I have to agree with everyone that the fact that this has been requested since 2015 (on another thread) and is still not implemented is confusing. I'm sure Shopify cares about it, if only for the sake of their own customer satisfaction, which leads me to believe that it must involve an overhaul of their whole framework. However, this doesn't quite make sense, as literally every web framework and webserver has methods to customize url's. I'm a software developer, so I understand that changing these is a significant time cost. But it definitely is possible if you have engineers worth their salt and product managers who know how to prioritize (with this issues having hundreds of people specifically requesting it, the priority should be clear, so it's either the engineers or the roadmap coordinators). As an engineer I also know how hard it is to promise specific timelines for a new feature, but to not have this issue actively being worked on (that has been communicated to us) by this point seems like a clear lack of appropriate prioritization.

I have numerous Shopify sites. But now I'm leaving for other platforms because of this one single issue. It is utter garbage that it doesn't affect your SEO. Ask any professional SEO agency.

I'm not a big van of the /pages /collections, etc., URL paths, but I think a lot of people here are pretty wrong on the impact of it on SEO. I thought when I switched to Shopify it would hurt my SEO due to the URL paths (but mostly I find them annoying), but they actually don't. For a lot of my main keywords I'm sitting #1 or #2, and others still on the first page. Maybe you should consider your SEO and copy is bad  and that's why you're unsuccessful. Although I do wish they would get rid of it, I'm not convinced it hurts your SEO.

Shopify!!!! Where are you?

No explanation, nothing.

Let us change the robots, the url system all that.

Hi @Andre_Borges,

The development team is aware of this feature request and each piece of relevant or new feedback from this thread has been added to the request. I have made sure to add it as it is mentioned to keep the team informed. 

There is still no update and I still can't offer any timeline on this. As soon as there is information to give, I will be sure to update this thread.

Also from the Netherlands the explicit request to remedy this problem. I enjoy using Shopify but this problem also bothers me a lot...

Agreed with the other 13 pages. This feature is completely necessary and makes Shopify websites feel incomplete.

"There is still no update and I still can't offer any timeline on this."

@Nick This is exactly the problem here.

Nothing from Shopify besides some wishful sentences that one day maybe...

thats not the way to cater to customers that pay 140$ a month honestly, im sure some even pay more depending...

Customers should have a saying in what features are next. There are a lot of topics in this forum with a lot of pages with people asking for features, again and again and we are not listened to.

Does the json work for About or Blog?

 

So weird to have:

mysite.com/Blogs/Blog

mysite.com.au/Pages/About

Guys you can stop commenting...they do not care.  Want to know why Shopify is so successful? It's because they market to the NEWBIES and the suckers just starting out - aka most of the world.  Needing more control of the brand, we took all of our clients elsewhere...If you care about looking professional then I suggest you all do the same.
