Change product Url and product description for every product variant

Hi there,

 

We run a Shopify website that sells yak cheese and I'm looking for advice on how to optimize my product pages for both user experience and SEO.

 

From an user experience perspective, having a single product page is convenient for customers to browse and compare different product variants. However, from an SEO perspective, having separate pages for each product variant can help improve search engine rankings and make it easier for customers to find my products.

 

I would like to know how I can change the URL of my product page for every product variant seamlessly so that I can have both the benefits of a single product page and separate pages for each variant.

 

I've heard about dynamic URL generation and how it can be used to create unique URLs for each product variant, but I'm not sure how to implement it on my Shopify website.

 

Can anyone recommend a third-party app or provide guidance on how to implement dynamic URL generation to update the URL and product details on the page when a variant is selected?

 

Any help would be deeply appreciated. Thank you in advance!

  • Heavily customize product pages to load specific variant content throughout the page based on current selection with variant deep-linking and the section rendering api 
  • Make landing pages.
  • Or make individual products with advanced customizations to present as 1 product with variants.
  • Or invest in a full custom stack using the storefront api.

Individual products can also be thought of as a product-family customization , or flat product model. I have some writings on in the forums about this advanced customization.

The downside/upside of individual products is unique listings are now also available for every channel.

 

If you need that customization explored or consulted on then can contact me directly for services.
Please provide context: store url, theme name, post url(s) and any further detail.

 If you've only heard about some technology but have no idea of the implementation details that is a red-flag a merchant is gonna burn money on a self prescribed fix with no guarantee of outcomes.

And often indicates either an XY problem or some other goal hoping technology X is the cure.

 

Dynamic url generation is more about search, or filtering such as on collection pages.

The closest for product pages is variant deep-linking .

Competent theme's should already be changing the url with the variant parameter; i.e. /products/red-shirt?variant=1234567

 

However, from an SEO perspective, having separate pages for each product variant can help improve search engine rankings and make it easier for customers to find my products


That's generally only true if there's relevant content or intrinsic facts that are very different between products; such as ingredients, FAQ ,manufacturer, etc but not if it's some thing like one prices is $20 and another is $80.

Which is not the same as difference between variants , if variants have drastic differences they probably should just be different products.

 

Good Hunting.
