Remove /blog/ slug?


#1

Is there a setting to remove the “/blog/” slug from blog posts?


Example:

I don’t want the /blog to be in my URL: www.mysite.com/blog/blog-post-here

Instead, it should be www.mysite.com/blog-post-here

My understanding is that for SEO purposes, CTR and other bits and bobs it’s better to have this.
The only method I can think of, is by creating single pages, which defeats the idea of a CMS.

I don’t think this is a feature, and is not possible…

Hi @Aaron_Ward,

I’m sorry but no you can’t change the url structure of collection template pages.
About SEO, actually it’s wrong.

If you want an efficient seo, google needs to understand easily the structure of your website and locate where are the articles, where is the homepage etc.

If you want to improve your seo and get the most of your juice on the homepage you should consider this kind of structure : (edit : link in absolute is better)

Which is not the very best for a user experience (because it means people need to go back to homepage to access to the complete menu) but it’s definitely the best for seo.

Finally even it’s a bad idea you could use 301 redirect (it’s only esthetic, won’t change the structure)

www.mysite.com/blog-post-here -> 301 redirect -> www.mysite.com/blog/blog-post-here

Thanks @zbrah! Appreciate the response.

I’ve dived a bit deeper into URL structuring and looks like it should be fine. As you say, it gives Google an understanding of your site structure.

Yes, the webflow structure is actually the best you can do :wink:
