Hello Ali.

Starter site is not indexed by search engines in any way so you can be sure that the content on your Wix storefront doesn’t get duplicated in search results by Starter site. Currently Ecwid stores that were added as an app for Wix websites are indexed automatically by search engines just like Ecwid plugins for Joomla and Wordpress sites.

Ecwid is an AJAX application and so are all websites that are made in WIx site builder, therefore these websites use #! in links, which means that they are compatible with the Google AJAX specification. Wix provides unique links for all its applications which request for the needed content.
You can test it yourself by replacing the “#!” with “?_escaped_fragment_=” in the address bar of your browser.
For example:

You can check how your website is indexed by Google using Google webmaster tools.
