This Webflow-enhancement is now part of a rapidly-evolving service collection we call Hyperflow.
Do you need Webflow's CMS paths to be more fluid?
Whether you're an SEO expert, or just trying to craft a logical organization for you website content, semantic paths are a central part of your site's design.
Semantic paths are paths that convey meaning and context to your pages by their location.
Unfortunately, Webflow's CMS has very rigid path rules, which effectively prevent you from building CMS-driven content hierarchies the way you want.
We can fix that.
In fact, this is one of the most-requested features we build for clients.
The way is to do this on a Webflow-hosted site is to design a reverse proxy that can resolve your desired paths to Webflow's collection page paths.
We custom build these to your requirements, and allow you to map your desired paths to the correct page content, any way you like.
We call this technique remapping.
There are four parts to remapping your site for top-quality SEO;
Using these 4 techniques together works beautifully with Webflow hosting.
The core Webflow architecture remains unchanged, and everything continues to work as designed - all of your original paths and redirects are fully functional.
And, this can be done on a live site with no disruption to your existing SEO investments. Slick, eh? We think so too.
There are several components to this solution but the most complex part of this build is typically the path map.
We can design yours specific to your needs, to keep your paths as flexible as you want, and your administration as convenient as possible.
Here are some of our key approaches, loosely ordered from simplest to most complex.
In general, approach #5 is most popular with SEO experts who want the flexibility to map paths arbitrarily, however it's also the most complex build. In most cases that's not needed.
We also support multi-level maps, which describes situations in which different levels of your path should be remapped differently, e.g.
/course/(course-slug) maps to a course page
/course/(course-slug)/(chapter-slug) maps to a chapter page
/course/(course-slug)/(chapter-slug)/(lesson-slug) maps to a lesson page
