Strip Tag Base

  • Hello,

    I would like to switch from my current SEO plugin to Rank Math. My question: Can I strip the Tag Base and remove /tag/ from tag archive URLs for changing from example.com/tag/my-tag/ to example.com/my-tag like I can do for Category Base?

    Thank you for your kind help in advance.

    Best regards,
    Mawi

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math today.

    Yes this is possible, you can create a regex redirect to remove any word from the URL or replace it with a new word. Please take a look at the following resource page for more info on this: https://rankmath.com/kb/solving-redirection-issues-using-rank-math-seo/

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.

    I also want this feature a lot. Tags are/were always more attractive to Google for SEO than Categories. Can you please add this option of “Strip Tag Base” in the main app itself? How hard could it be since you have “Strip Category Base” already. Please.

    I am trying regex ^tag/(.*) to $1 as suggested in the above link but gives a not found error.

    Rank Math’s strip category base option works perfectly. So I think Rank Math should add strip tag base option very importantly.

    PS. I tried so many redirect regex codes, functions.php codes, permanlink settings, but nothing work. Finally a 5-year old wp no tag base plugin worked. It is 5-year old so it may stop working anytime. I again request Rank Math to add this “Strip Tag Base” option in its free version please just like the existing “Strip Category Base”.
