Url should hide /product-categorie/

  • Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math and sorry for any inconvenience that might have been caused due to that.

    It looks like you had manually entered a canonical URL on the advanced tab of the Rank Math metabox on the affected category which was taking precedence over the global options.

    Deleting the canonical URL allows Rank Math to generate the right canonical as shown below:

    Please remove the manual canonical URLs from this field to fix this. Please note that the Rank Math preview will display the default URL.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.

    Hello,

    Thanks for your reply, which I unfortunately do not fully understand. Maybe I changed something in the past as you say, however…

    actually in the advanced tab the canonical is showing:
    http://www.website.nl/product-categorie/koffiebonen/
    (see printscreen 3)

    This in NOT the cannonical I manually entered and is more importantly NOT what I want.
    It is generated by Rankmath I think because I CANNOT manually delete it.

    I can however change/OVERWRITE cannonical manually to http://www.website.nl/koffiebonen/ which is as you know my goal.

    Is that the best option, to manually overwrite this and the other productcategories? For me it is a little effort, but I do not want to disturb anything for SEO purposes.

    Or should something be changed in global Rankmath settings to achieve correct url?

    Thanks for your expert help in this very important SEO matter.

    Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math today and sorry for the delay.

    It looks like your previous response got stuck in our moderation queue and this is why we could not get back to you sooner.

    Please note that even though the Rank Math metabox displays the canonical as http://www.website.nl/product-categorie/koffiebonen/ on the preview, the correct URL is displayed on the page source. Please refer to the screenshot I shared earlier.

    No additional step is required if you don’t have a manual canonical entered. Please inspect any category by clicking on CTRL+U on Chrome and check the canonical tag.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.
