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.

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.

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.

This is quite upsetting. 14 pages and still no resolution?

Any update?

 

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.
