Shopify App : Canonical Tag

Add Canonical URL for your Products

Instructions for the app

Why do we need this application

Currently, Shopify doesn't allow you to add a canonical tag from their admin panel and we know how important that is when working with SEO.

You create a collection of products that use the same content. Google crawler is going to flag it. To avoid this, the canonical tag allows telling the crawler that they all belong to the same URL (maybe your collection page).

How to use it

  1. Install the app
  2. The first time you open the app, it will ask you to update your theme to add a block.
  3. Click on "Update Theme". This will take you to your store theme settings with the app block enabled. Save the theme on the opened page.
  4. Refresh the app
  5. Choose a product you want to add a canonical tag for.
  6. Add the URL and save.
  7. You can check your product page to have an updated canonical tag (You can use online canonical URL checkers)

Having troubles

Don't see changes after theme update?

Shopify ends up removing app block when upgrading some themes. Don't worry, your data will persist since app doesn't save anything data outside, it's all in your Shopify data, safe. To make it work after upgrade, reinstall the app.

How to reset?

To remove canonical tag from some products, set the actual product URL as canonical tag in the app. That's what default value in Shopify is for canonical tag, your product URL.

To remove all product changes? Just uninstall the app. Drop us a feedback email what we're missing.
