Here, we will dive into how to change the page URLs of products, pages, blog articles that you have made through Shopify. When you get used to Shopify admin screen, it's quite easy to change URLs of those pages. However, when you have just started your store at Shopify, it is quite difficult to know where you can change URLs of products(or other articles or pages).
So in this article we will show you how to change the URL of product page, fixed page, blog article.
Change the URL of Shopify product page
So first and most importantly the product page URL.
Product is the most important part of your store, so don't hesitate to take time to decide what kind of URL that you should set on each products.
Admin screen→Products→choose the product that you want to change it's URL.
After you have moved to certain product page from admin screen, scroll to the bottom and you can see "preview search result".
When you open this "Edit SEO of the website", it will enable you to edit product page URL.
Last section, "URL and handle" is the exact part that you can change it's URL! And not only product URL but also you can change the text that are shown in search engines, so as it is better to make SEO friendly store, consider to edit that part as well.（But as it is, I haven't taken the time to edit that part either, so prioritize to edit URL and handle first.）
And when you are still considering what kind of URL to use, please refer to below examples.
