Shopify Web Pixels Manager Bug

While doing a site audit this week, noticed a subtle variation of the Shopify Web Pixels Manager bug. Instead of “web-pixels-manager” being shown in the URLs, it’s now “wpm”. These pages are sadly still getting indexed for some it seems.

The Shopify Support team previously suggested that the issue had been sorted.

This issue impacting the indexing results of Web Pixel Sandbox on Google has now been resolved on our end. As Google controls their own indexing, it may take some time to see the result. If you continue to experience any issues, please try clearing your cache, or let us know by posting a new topic with as much detail as possible. Thanks for your understanding and patience!

The Shopify Web Pixels Manager Bug lives on.

Yeap … like others … both variants have been blocked via ROBOTS.TXT however the erroneous URLS continue to show up in Google Search Console as indexed regardless.

It continues to be a nightmare for others according to the Shopify Community pages. Shopify has done a NoIndex & NoFollow and blocked the wpm@ in robot.txt. The problem with that is if Google already indexed a lot of wpm@ pages, the no index will not work if there is also a block Disallow wpm@ in the robot.txt.

All the indexed pages are therefore stuck in the Google caches. The last update is that there working on a fix to unblock it from the robot.txt. This way the no index will work and drop all the wpm@ indexed pages.
