Cafe Conmerce Links

Hey

Working with new SEO company. as far as links to our site, we have thousands of links from outdated mycafecommerce.com pages. Any idea why these are not being dropped? Any way to shut down the mycafecommerce.com URL?

Thx

From Goolge Console:

Who links the most

mycafecommerce.com 3,428

What page is being linked to? I'll see if I can find where it is coming from. Do you have an exact url that is linking to it?

Those are the side navigation links. I added a 301 header to redirects from mycafecommerce.com to your custom domain, so hopefully that will stop the indexing by google.

Those pages are already redirecting to a 404 page after that, which adds a 404 header, so I think that will keep google from indexing the 404 page... it also has a noindex meta tag.

Let's see if that makes a difference over the next couple of weeks when google indexes the site again.

Hello

Excuse my ignorance. What are the "Side navigation links". Are you referring to what Cafecommerce is linking to? Also, if the mycafecommerce urls are re-directed, could that be why they are not "gone" or deleted"? Also, if they are noindex, that will not stop them from linking to my site?

I am just confused. Finally, is the ginelectronics.mycafecommerce.com part of the structure of our site and thus can't be deleted?

It can't be accessed, so it is effectively gone. The side navigation links are the category links on the sidebar that you have on every page. The mycafecommerce were redirecting without a header before you posted. I added a 301 header to the redirects so that they should be recognized as moved to the main domain and won't be indexed separately.

If they aren't indexed then links from them should not be recognized.

Just a heads up. About 30 of the 3000 CafeCommerce links dropped.

I have noticed that categories pages, not product, that are re-directed on both the cafecommerce site and our regular URL are not being dropped by Google. Is that what you fixed? Are they not being dropped because the re-direct? There are thousands of internal links also from category pages that should have been dropped...

Can you send me an example of a link that isn't being dropped? I'll look into it again.

Hello

From cafecomnerce or reg.? Below is just a segment of thousands that Google has as still being active internal links to our site. Instead of re-directing the category pages, can you just 404 them like the products pages. Between Cafe Commerce links and internal links, we have well over 5000 links from old pages , this from a 300 page site. Google views this as a "poor" user experience...

I've updated it to use a 404 redirect instead of going to the parent category or previous page in the same category like it was doing before.
