The search engines are usually not checking out, but what is more important, they cannot index the active contents of the Ecwid shopping widget at all, because they don't evaluate JavaScript, which powers Ecwid. Instead, you can provide the information about your products with help of a few different SEO techniques described here: http://kb.ecwid.com/SEO . The redirect suggested above will not affect any of those techniques, so you may not penalized for using it for Ecwid widgets.
