Support » Plugin: WooCommerce » /product-tag/ ? Causing 404 errors.

  • Some how some way, google – yahoo – bing have indexed site links that go like this /product-tag/product-description-bla/

    Problem is I cant figure out why our how these were created in woocommerce.
    I have tried a url redirect to actual product which is /product/product-description-alb/

    How do I redirect these in woocommerce?

    I have around 12 that I have found indexed and need to get these fixed.
    Thanks for any help

    You need to look into using htaccess file if you want to redirect links that are already indexed by google.

    I have here is what I have.. If you know something better PLEASE do let me know
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^kooziehq\.com$ [OR]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www\.kooziehq\.com$
    RewriteRule ^product\-tag\/custom\-koozies\-no\-minimum\/$ “http\:\/\/kooziehq\.com\/koozie\/personalized\-can\-koozies\-for\-weddings\/” [R=301,L]

    For some reason it is not being redirected.. My other links I had from when I moved wp from store to shop redirect perfect.. For some reason These links are no redirecting as needed…

    I am not sure what your issue is because you are stating conflicting issues. One is your permalinks is not redirecting to the correct place. The other is search engines have indexed your “old” urls and now you want to have it point to somewhere else until search engines refreshes your site links…Which is it??

    Ok .. less confusing..

    Here is the link indexed.

    I need it redircted to

    You have seen how I tried to redirect.. Issue is the link is not even available to redirect any more..

    How Do I redirect a link that no longer exist is what I guess I need.

    Thank you for your help Sir… Your knowledge is overwhelming!

    As I said in the first comment, you need to use htaccess file to do so. Try to google it, there are a plenty of docs on how to use that to redirect URLs.

    Here is an article about it –
