NoIndex Any URL


We've recently added a new feature that gives you the ability to NoIndex pretty much any URL. So if you can't find what you're looking for in the app i.e a custom URL with filters etc you can save this URL in the app and we will NoIndex it for you!

NoIndex URLs that contain certain words


You can set rules up so you can NoIndex URLs that contain certain words, for example if you want to NoIndex any URL that contain the word 'test-product' you can do so within the app!

NoIndex duplicate product URLs


Shopify generates numerous URLs for the same main product page, for example:
example.com/products/my-product-name (main product page)

Other URLs are generated that go to the same product page and causes duplicate content e.g.
example.com/collections/my-collection-name/products/my-product-name (duplicate URL that goes to the same product page)

So example.com/my-collection-name/frontpage/products/my-product-name will get NoIndexed and the main product page will remain indexed.

What options do I have?


Sitemap + NoIndex + NoFollow + Search:
- This will remove the object from your Shopify generated XML sitemap, apply NoIndex, NoFollow.
- This will make sure it will not get indexed by search engines.
- This will also make sure objects are not searchable through your stores internal search.

NoIndex + NoFollow:
- This will apply NoIndex and NoFollow.
- This will make sure it will not get indexed by search engines.
- Objects will still be searchable through your stores internal search.

NoIndex + Follow:
- This will just apply NoIndex but allow links to be followed.
- Objects will still be searchable through your stores internal search.

How will this app benefit my store?


Managing your sitemap is very important for SEO reasons. A sitemap is a document full of links to pages, products, blog articles and other content that helps search engines crawl your store and index it into its search results. It helps with search engine optimisation by making it easier for search engines to organise and find content on your store.

You may not want all pages being indexed because there can be many different versions of the same page which causes duplicate content issues. Your store can be penalised and have its ranking lowered as a result of duplicate content. By using our app you can exclude pages from your sitemap and apply NoIndex, NoFollow to them so search engines stay away, safeguarding your stores rankings.

This app will also benefit your store if you want to hide certain products from being searchable via your stores internal search, for example if you have a product that you only want to advertise elsewhere and not searchable through your store, you have that option!

Fix Duplicate Content Issues


This app will also help you fix duplicate content issues your store maybe facing, resulting in lower rankings and being penalised by Google.


Tackling this issue will ensure your store keep its rankings which will result in customers finding your store higher up in the search results. More customers = more revenue.

Bulk Edit


The dashboard is very easy to use, with bulk editing features that allow you to edit multiple objects in one go to make the process pain free.

Filtering


To make your life easy when using the app you can filter products by its title and collection and filter collections by its title.

This app took my noindex headache away (cheaper than a bottle of excedrin)! It can be very difficult to do this yourself and the app made it super easy. Get it!

Great app and the support was really helpful!

BEEN TRYING TO "NO INDEX" pages in shopify for almost a month now! All our special offer pages were indexed by google so anyone could access our special offers which we definitely didn't want. Also when you use apps like zipify pages or OCU you have to make multiples of the same product in your store but this causes tones of duplicate content issues in google! I TALKED TO SHOPIFY SUPPORT AND THEME SUPPORT AND ALL SUGGESTION WERE CRAP!!! THEN I FOUND THIS APP WOWOWOWOW! Did everything I needed and I was all set up in less than 30 minutes! INSANE!!!!

Very useful and great service. Thank you!

Awesome app, just works straight out of the box in a minute setup time.

Not being able to edit robots.txt is one of the small handicaps Shopify has. I just wish I discovered this app a lot sooner.

A must have and a life saver! really you need this to help with all shopify's duplicate content headache. Absolute reliving, absolutely amazing. If I could give 10 stars I would.

Raving endorsement! Orbis Labs flat delivers.

We are currently using the noindex plugin to pare down on the ridiculous amount of pages that Shopify gets indexed by default, massively diluting the site's Google index. You can slice and dice to your heart's content.

But here's the kicker. Support. We contacted support with a feature suggestion that the URLs in the app be hyperlinked to the page in a new window for quick checking of the contents of the page. Orbis had it live in under an hour! No joke!!

Never before have we seen anything like that.

As for technical questions, Orbis also answered them fast and thoroughly. In minutes typically.

Next up we are trying the rich snippets plugin.

Thank you Orbis Labs! Plugins or apps the way they should be!!

Highly recommended. Do not hesitate to use this app plugin.
