  • Updated 4 months ago

Premmerce Permalink Manager works well with the popular SEO plugin Yoast SEO.

You can utilize the Yoast ‘primary category’ set for a product to put this in product URLs. Navigate to Premmerce > Permalink Manager > Settings:

After settings this up, the Permalink Manager plugin will use the Yoast SEO primary category to build the product path which would improve the structure of the site, this also make sure that your permalinks and breadcrumbs remain clean.

Any URL changes you make with the Permalink Manager plugin are represented in the XML sitemap generated by Yoast SEO.
