I moved my site from Shopify to WordPress

11 replies
Hi, hello everyone, a while ago I built a website on Shopify, a few days after I built it I decided to move to WordPress, so I transferred all the products there and after a while I closed Shopify, at the moment I have many pages that were from Shopify that appear on Google and when I click on them I see A blank page on my site, it's been a few weeks since I deleted the site on Shopify but they still show up in google search, what am I supposed to do with all these pages?

    You can request to have the pages removed if they are outdated. You can send a removal request to Google by clicking on the dotted icon next to the search result, and select the proper option to remove the result.

      Hi, I don't see this option, and also how can I find all the Shopify pages that are on Google?

    It means your site pages are indexed. Did you set the no-index tag while developing it on Shopify? Also, what about Google Search Console?

    I had to chime in as I've recently learned from my teacher that Shopify has exploded in popularity with visitors.

    I know Wordpress has been around longer but now i'm reluctant to ever use my wordpress site again with this news.

    I'm eagerly awaiting my teacher's research results on the best way to use Shopify.

    The pages are still probably indexed. You can use web master to un-index these pages and then they would not show on Google search. I faced the same issue when I moved to WordPress+Cloudways and had to go through the pain of un-indexing my pages from Google.

    In my opinion, shifting the website from Shopify to WordPress is not the solution. There is a possibility that you may phase the same issue in WordPress also.

    At the present time, customers are more centric towards mobile app technology rather than web-based shopping. The reason is that mobile apps provide more convenience to customers as they are fast and more secure. Customers can enjoy a fast checkout process and apps also provide you with multiple payment options.
    So your should turn your Shopify store into mobile app.

    Those blank pages are called 404 pages. If you want to redirect all the visitors including google crawlers to be redirected to homepage, use this plugin - All 404 Redirect to Homepage.


    If you want each 404 page to redirect to some specific page, then you need to use some other plugin, just search for 301 redirect plugin in the plugin database.


    Also, do 301, as that means permanent and it will pass the link authority to what ever the pages you redirect to.

  • If the blank URLs are not used in your new website and doesn't serve any purpose than you will add it in Google Search Console removal section, but if they were old pages and are raked in Google then you will go with redirects.
