Collections Internal Links Point To Collection URLs not Canonical Products This post is outdated
I'm seeing the following;
- When navigating to a Product from a Collections page the Product page is displayed as .com/collections/collection-name/products/product-name
- Looking at the Canonical link on that page it points to the true product page - .com/products/product-name
My question is, as our products only belong to one collection, is there a way to make the Product shown in the collection page link directly through the Collection page?
i.e. It looks the same however the products displayed link to - .com/products/product-name rather than .com/collections/collection-name/products/product-name
The reason I ask is that from an SEO point of view the internal linking from the collections pages point to the /collections/ URL which is then canonically redirected to /products/ which adds time to crawling the site as well as loses link equity through the redirect.
Thanks in advance.
