I am trying to fix the URL structure of an e-commerce site that has about 90k pages of parts. The site does not have a URL directory structure. Therefore, all 90k pages are below the root as
I am not an SEO, but I know that this is incorrect and needs to be repaired for development and SEO purposes. Any changes you make should consider SEO first. There are 6 main sections of the site:
1. example.com/parts #defines a basic parts landing page 2. example.com/car-parts #this displays links to cart part category pages 3. example.com/catalogsearch #this searches the product database 4. example.com/some-category-name #this page would display parts specific to the category 5. example.com/part-page #this is a page featuring a single part and it may be a car, truck, or motorcycle part. 6. example.com/vehicle-page #this page has not been added to the site yet, but this page will feature parts that go to a specific vehicle.
Therefore, I am trying to discover what would be the best way to structure URLs in a hierarchy. The example.com/car-parts page is one of our pages with the highest ranking, which causes some difficulty to the structure below.
Put all pages related to parts below
Put the pages related to the category below
It must be this
example.com/parts/categories/my-category-name? What should be done with the
/parts/categoriespage? We have several pages like
example.com/serpentine-beltsThat ranks well, but that only follows the flat URL structure that is very difficult to scale.
Put search below
example.com/parts/search. I would like to use our search facets to link to certain categories or pages of brands.
Put pages of vehicle parts below
What should i do with
example.com/parts/vehicles? Show a vehicle search list? Redirect to any homepage?
Put part pages below
These are just a few ideas that I had, but I'm not sure what the best approach will be. Any help would be appreciated.
