Hello John!
I am sorry for the delay with the reply.

In general Ecwid uses the Google's AJAX indexing specification supported by the most popular search engines: Google, Yahoo, Bing, Yandex. You can find more detailed information in the following article:

I inspected your website. In order to make sure Google AJAX indexing works, I checked two options according to the troubleshooting steps given in the following article

1) I opened your store page in a browser and checked its source code. There should be a fragment meta tag in the head section of the document (between the <head> and </head> tags):
<meta name="fragment" content="!" />
I didn’t find this tag in the source code of your site.

2) I opened your website’s URL address with the “?&_escaped_fragment_=” element. The URL address should look like:
I didn’t find the list of categories as well. So it looks like something is installed wrong. Please make sure your setup meets the requirements and you complete all the steps of the instruction.

In general we have ready Google AJAX indexing solution for our Wordpress and Joomla plugins’ users. In this case no additional measures are needed - if you have a paid Ecwid account, your store products will automatically get to search results.

I inspected your website and found that it is created as standalone, i.e. it’s not based on any ready template/CMS. There is a way to set up Google AJAX indexing tool on your site. It is to develop a special script, as the following instruction describes: on your site

So this way requires a programming background. You can do it yourself or, if you need some help with such an installation, you can hire a developer. I suggest that you should contact our friends from Qualiteam ( Send your request to for quote.
