Dears,

what do you think the best in optimizing shopping cart?

I've read that it's all about the URL structure that the website follows. So, what do you think that it is best for an online store shopping cart SEO?

I also have read on a blog post that:
QUOTE
Many shopping carts will place them in a category directory like this:

http://example.com/d...e/product-name/

However, I recommend a a different structure such as:

http://example.com/p...t/product-name/

http://example.com/prod/product-name/

http://example.com/p/product-name/

I don’t recommend using the department because most stores have a one to many relationship between products and departments. In layman’s terms, a product can be categorized in more than one department. For example, a set of plates could be in the “dinnerware,” “tableware,” or “entertaining” categories. It can also be in the “new,” “seasonal,” or “featured” category as well. When the merchandising side decides to change/add/remove departments, the URL is in jeopardy of changing, and that’s something to avoid at all costs.


so, is that right? or you have better advice about this issue?

Thanks.

The URL structure doesn't have anything to do with how it ranks. It's how each page links to other pages that provide a benefit.

Offtopic, but if you're going to quote from another website, you need to provide attribution or else it's copyright infringement.

Thanks Jill,
so, what do you think is the best in the URL structure anyway?

Thanks.

There is no best since it doesn't make any difference to anything.
