Please let us know, if you have migrated site from other platform and preserve SEO. Also what could be strategy we should follow regarding sitemap.xml submission to Google and other search engine.

Hi Hemant!

Kerstin here from the Shopify Guru Team :)

When it comes to SEO, it would depend on your compliance with what Google wants, not necessarily the platform. We have some great articles and guides on our blog and in our Shopify Manual. I also found this video series to be very helpful.

The Shopify Manual will give you an overview of how SEO works on our platform. As for the editing of the SEO meta tags, you could export your product list from Magento via CSV file and then add the SEO tags to each product using these metafields.

Once you have made SEO changes, you can then resbmit your sitemap to Google llike this

I hope I have pointed you in the right direction and if you have any more questions about your store's SEO or general migration questions, just reply to this thread or reach out to our support channels via chat, phone, or email.

All the best,

Kerstin K.
