How To Hide Blog Post On Shopify
Last modified: April 8, 2023
Blogging is a vital component of online marketing. The more content you publish, the more traffic, inbound links and sales you will make. Not to mention that you will also likely have a higher rank on Google and other search engines.
Sometimes, however, you don’t want to have your blog post visible. This could be because of events that are outside of your control are making your post inappropriate at the time. Another might be because you only want your blog post to be displayed during seasonal periods, like holidays or during sales when there are monetization options.
Hiding a blog post is simple to do and easy to achieve. Follow these instructions to make it happen on your Shopify store. If you want to remove the blog post permanently, then you might want to consider deleting the blog post from your Shopify blog.
Step 1 – Login
Login to your Shopify site using your Shopify login credentials.
Step 2 – Blog Posts
Now from your main dashboard, go to the ‘Online Store’ and then ‘Blog Posts’ option. This will take you to the list of blog posts that you’ve published on your store.
Step 3 – Choose The Blog Post
From the list of blog posts that you’re presented with, choose the blog post you wish to hide and then click on the title. This will take you into the Blog Post edit screen.
Step 4 – Hide Blog Post
In the top right corner of the screen there should be a visibility field. This will have two options, visible and hidden. Select the ‘Hidden’ option. Now you can save the blog post and the blog post won’t appear again.
If you’re looking to make a blog post visible again after making it hidden, you can follow the steps and then instead of choosing the option ‘Hidden’ choose the option ‘Visible’. This will make the blog post visible. It will be inserted into the same order as it was originally published in. Therefore, if it was published over a year ago, it will be inserted back into that position.
If you’re looking to have it come more to the forefront of the blog, as if it were a new blog post, then you might want to change the publish date to something more visible.
Final Word: How To Hide A Blog Post On Shopify
When it comes to your blog, you need to carefully manage it. Trying to create 15 blog posts a month is hard, but not all of those blog posts are going to be evergreen. At times you might want to hide a blog post or two from the public. Follow the steps above to achieve this.
