Ecwid product pages not appearing in Google searches


A Google search of site:https://creative-prc.us/store/ returns only the Wordpress /store/ page - and none of the Ecwid product pages. Any ideas why we're not appearing in a site: search?

BTW, we're using Cloudflare to supply ssl for the site. Don't know if that would affect the Ecwid functionality.

Hello Greg!

This is Jenny from Ecwid customer care team.

I checked your store and see, that Google has not yet indexed the pages of your store. To make your site indexed by google, I’d recommend you to do the following:

1) Enable SEO-friendly URLs in your store.

- The new URLs do not contain the hash sign (“#”), which, according to Google, makes your store better indexed by Google.

- Fewer extra characters like “/”, “~” or’!’. There is a number of text characters (such as < > # % { } | \ ^ ~ [ ] `) that become nasty bits of hard-to-read cruft when inserted in the URL string. We got rid of them in new SEO-friendly URLs.

- Other store pages’ URLs also became cleaner, e.g. cart and checkout pages are now easily accessible on “/cart” and “/checkout”.

- Fast-loading store pages. The store pages with new URLs work without page reload, as it’s always worked in Ecwid. So you have your fast-loading store pages with new, SEO-friendly URLs.

To enable the new SEO friendly URLs, you need to follow the instructions from here: https://support.ecwid.com/hc/en-us/a...ewcleanSEOURLs If you are unsure of how to implement such changes for your website, you should contact your site builder/hosting support on this matter.

2) Generate a sitemap with the help of the Sitemap generator app from our App Market - https://www.ecwid.com/apps/featured/...generator-j-26 . Save the sitemap and upload it to your server. If you need some help with this step, please contact the customer service of your hosting provider. To force the indexation of your Ecwid site, you should submit a sitemap of your Ecwid Store to Google Webmaster tools — https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/home

3) You can set custom SEO titles and descriptions for products right in your Ecwid control panel in Catalog > Products > product page > SEO tab. Google uses page title and description (so-called "meta tags") to get information about this page and shows this info as a page description in search results. Now you can open the "SEO" tab in the product details page and add the product meta data to make it perfect for Google. Learn more here: https://support.ecwid.com/hc/en-us/a...EcwidSEOfields

Also, here is the article in our Ecwid blog with useful information of this theme: https://www.ecwid.com/blog/the-e-com...de-to-seo.html I hope it will help you to sort out more in this subject, because there are no prescribed rules on how to become a professional in SEO.

What about Cloudflare SSL certificate, Google gives a better rating to HTTPS websites, so it has only positive effect on Google indexing of sites. So, it has a positive effect on the indexing of your Ecwid store.
