Thanks, but the canonical tag will not transfer ranking to the new url. And the old url will remain indexed in the search engines.
The only way to give ranking to new url and get the new one properly indexed is to give the old urls 301’s.
All permalink manager plugins use 301’s after removing product and prouct category slug, why rankmath doesn’t?
For a seo plugin it is a strange to use only the canonical tag for changing the url structure, because 301’s are always advised then. Canonical tags are mainly used to prevent duplicate content, not for change of url structure.
Please read this:
I’m beginning to think that you are missing the point?
Of course when i click on a link of the product in the admin i go directly to the url without prefix. But that is not what i/m talking about.
The point is that there are no 301’s from the old url to the new one.
So if i go to:
the url stays the same, it does not redirect to the new url without product prefix.
So in google search the already indexed url with prefix will not change and will not give ranking to the new url without prefix. Because that is only done with a 301.
I really do not understand your answer. That has got nothing to do with my question.
I hope it is more clear now.
did as you told. disabled all plugins and standard theme. problem still the same.
You can try at the sensitive data i gave and check this url for example:
no redirect to:
You can try everything in the admin, as it is just a clone.

1. i edited the url now in the above message. so works ok now
2. not sure what you mean? removing the product prefix en product category prefix with rankmath does not make any redirect at all from the urls with prefix. So all already indexed in google with /product and /categorie prefix do not 301 to without prefix but only get canonical tag.
