Search Engine Optimisation, or SEO, is more than just a buzzword; it's a requirement for every website that wants to get noticed on the web. As any online shopping site owner knows, getting people to your store is paramount, but 99% of all shopping carts use dynamic pages. This means using long query strings to tell the page which product to show. Unfortunately mos search engine web crawlers will choke on multiple query string variables and excessively long product numbers.
Now with the new Static Pages SEO Mod from CP Mods you can move into the 1%.
This mod will create Static Page versions of every Product, Category, Extra and Specials page in your CandyPress website effectively eliminating the query string problem from your store.
The Static Pages SEO Mod creates these static files in a folder of your choosing. This will help your store achieve higher rankings on Search Engines by providing vital keywords in the URLs of each and every product. Each Category and Sub Category has their own folders and sub folders which can add even more keyword hits.
This Mod allows you to easily create these static pages either in bulk (all at once) using our own custom page,or individually using the standard CandyPress editing pages. It keeps track of all your changes and modifies the static files accordingly.
So what does all this mean? Basically it takes a page like this:
And turns it into this search engine friendly version.
As added extras we have also included an XML format Sitemap generation tool which can be uploaded to Google, Yahoo and MSN, as well as a site root home page which can be either the
default CandyPress format (Featured Products) or any of your Custom (Extra) pages, which can then be selected from Admin.
Also included is an XML format Sitemap Generator. This Sitemap is compatible with Google, Yahoo and MSN to help make getting your store indexed even easier.As an added bonus we have also included a custom Home Page Mod. This allows you to choose your Home Page, either the standard CandyPress page with Featured Items, or any of your Custom Extra Pages. You can even use an Extra Page that has been hidden from navigation. Now you can make your store look truly unique.
