Common Shopify SEO Issues

eCommerce CMS systems like Magento, Drupal, BigCommerce and WordPress all have their pros and cons which need to be carefully navigated. Shopify, one of the most popular is no different.

Common Shopify SEO Issues Short Description Impact on Approach to Shopify SEO
Duplicate Content Automatically generated URLs can lead to duplicate content, affecting search engine ranking. Requires extra vigilance to ensure that content is unique, potentially necessitating third-party tools or manual monitoring.
Restricted URL Structure Shopify enforces a specific URL structure that can’t be customized, affecting SEO. Limits flexibility in URL optimization, requiring alignment with Shopify’s structure rather than specific SEO strategies.
No Trailing Slash Redirect Shopify doesn’t allow for a site-wide trailing slash redirect, leading to duplicate content issues. May require manual corrections or additional tools to prevent duplicate content, complicating SEO optimization efforts.
No Control Over robots.txt File Shopify doesn’t allow manual edits to the robots.txt file, affecting SEO customization. Restricts control over how search engines crawl the site, making it necessary to adapt to the platform’s predefined settings.
Canonical URL Issues Problems with canonical URLs can lead to duplicate content and harm SEO. Requires constant monitoring and possible third-party solutions to manage canonicalization properly.
Breadcrumb URL Issues Incorrect breadcrumb URLs can affect user experience and search engine indexing. Necessitates careful management of breadcrumb navigation to ensure alignment with SEO best practices.
Sitemap Issues Shopify generates sitemaps automatically, but sometimes not all pages are indexed. May require manual interventions or specialized tools to ensure that all relevant pages are indexed properly.
Tag Page Limitations Shopify automatically creates new pages for each product tag, which can’t be customized and may lead to duplicate content. Requires strategic tagging and potentially third-party tools to minimize the impact of duplicate content on SEO.

These nuances require advanced strategies tailored to Shopify’s platform. Our specialized solutions have proven successful in numerous Shopify stores, focusing on highly targeted  technical SEO audits and aggressive content strategy ensure optimal organic traffic.
