WooCommerce: Redirect Product Category Pages

Maybe because you have only one product category and therefore search engines would find duplicate content (Shop page = Category page) and penalize your website.

Or maybe because you use advanced product filters and you prefer customers to see the filtered view “by category” (e.g. “example.com/shop/?_product_category=tables“) as opposed to the default category pages ( “example.com/product_category/tables” ).

Either way, it is possible to programmatically redirect all product category pages to a given page or to a relevant URL with parameters – and here’s the fix. Enjoy!

Product categories come with their own page. But sometimes you may want to unindex + redirect these pages for SEO reasons. Here are two solutions to redirect all pages to the Shop page, or to a category-specific URL with parameters

PHP Snippet 1: Redirect All Product Category Pages to Shop Page

/** * @snippet Redirect To Shop @ WooCommerce Category Pages * @how-to Get CustomizeWoo.com FREE * @author Rodolfo Melogli * @compatible WooCommerce 7 * @donate $9 https://businessbloomer.com/bloomer-armada/ */ add_action( ‘wp’, ‘bbloomer_redirect_cats_to_shop’ ); function bbloomer_redirect_cats_to_shop() { if ( is_product_category() ) { wp_safe_redirect( wc_get_page_permalink( ‘shop’ ) ); exit; } }

PHP Snippet 2: Redirect Each Product Category Page to A Relevant URL With Parameters

/** * @snippet Redirect To URL + Parameters @ WooCommerce Category Pages * @how-to Get CustomizeWoo.com FREE * @author Rodolfo Melogli * @compatible WooCommerce 7 * @donate $9 https://businessbloomer.com/bloomer-armada/ */ add_action( ‘wp’, ‘bbloomer_redirect_cat_to_relevant_filter’ ); function bbloomer_redirect_cat_to_relevant_filter() { if ( is_product_category() ) { $term = get_queried_object(); $url = $term && $term->slug ? ‘/shop/?_product_category=’ . $term->slug : wc_get_page_permalink( ‘shop’ ); wp_safe_redirect( $url ); exit; } }

Where to add this snippet?

You can place PHP snippets at the bottom of your child theme functions.php file (delete “?>” if you have it there). CSS, on the other hand, goes in your child theme style.css file. Make sure you know what you are doing when editing such files – if you need more guidance, please take a look at my free video tutorial “Where to Place WooCommerce Customization?”

Does this snippet (still) work?

Please let me know in the comments if everything worked as expected. I would be happy to revise the snippet if you report otherwise (please provide screenshots). I have tested this code with Storefront theme, the WooCommerce version listed above and a WordPress-friendly hosting on PHP 7.3.
