Spider-friendly Shopping Card
Posted 30 October 2003 - 02:38 PM
I believe this question has been asked before but let me ask it again:
1. Do you know of any available shopping card solutions, hosted or not, which are search-engine-friendly?
2. Do you know of any book, website, or tutorial, which would guide me through developing a search-engine-friendly shopping card? I prefer ASP or ColdFusion or PHP...
Thanks in advance!

I know there are packages out there (osCommerce) that offer options to write the URLs generated in such a way that they are more spider-friendly (using "/" instead of "&"), but I would like to get more into the how's, why's & what-for's...

i don't have a site yet i am still searching for a well optimized shopping cart
monster cart there version 4.0 there is Someone caption on there forum saying it will have titles a static page generator below is a link
then there is bvsoftware i like there package its very nice (the best is the price and for extra $$ you get the source code vb.net! my favorite computer language)
if you look at there forums (link below) Marks said he will work very hard on SEO
for his next version that means title for each product meta and the layout,
now there are nice sites using bvsoftware like rudystoys but the old version has a problem with the url it has to many parameters he is going to fix this (told me via email)

You don't want or need the actual shopping cart indexed but you do want to get your product pages in there. A few ways to do that would be:
1) Build static pages that link to a shopping cart. (Paypal, Paysystems, etc)
2) Build a spider-friendly content management system that links to a shopping cart.
3) Find an ecommerce application that manages a database of products as well as handling the actual shopping transaction.
I'm guessing you are looking for a solution like #3?

FYI If you are just starting out and need a database based cart you will need to learn how to work with dynamic content. How many pages are you imagining?
Our pages are not dynamic, but are updated weekly and manually. Our store will probably top out at around 60-75 pages when done.
