Question

SEO Ecwid & Wordpress


I integrated ECWID into my Wordpress just by copying and pasting the "code".
Then I customized the design through css

Now I'm trying to understand how to get rid of the ugly uls which are in the form
hxxp://mydomain.xy/shop/#!/~/product/category=3809682&id=16422838
instead of
hxxp://mydomain.xy/shop/category/product

I also installed the Wordpress plugin but what is it for:
- to customize the Layout?
- to integrate ecwid through single login and stuff?
I see apparently no improvements in SEO

Thank you,
Andrea

Hi,

If you have a Wordpress site, I highly recommend using our WP plugin and its automatically generated store page with shortcodes (like [ecwid_script], [ecwid_search] etc) instead of copying/pasting the integration code from your Dashboard page. You will be able to get the advantages of the plugin, and particularly SEO, only when the store is implemented with the plugin.

In a nutshell, the plugin offers:
- Easy store integration and advanced layout settings
- Built-in single sign-on integration
- SEO features

Regarding the SEO features, please refer to this thread:

As to URL schema, the so-called hashbang part of URL (#!...) is necessary for supporting Google AJAX crawling protocol which allows search engines to natively index your store. More details:

Default Wordpress SEO

Sorry if this is a dupe, but I've searched all over and can't find the answer... maybe I am not searching correctly.

Anyhow, I've been using Ecwid (paid) for sometime and am looking to improve my SEO

I started by creating a page and inserting the code from the dashboard. The store works fine, but products don't seem to be indexing. I then found out about the wordpress plugin for ECWID, but am not sure if I actually need it or not. Can someone please advise?

Should I use the plugin as opposed to the way I did it?

my website store is http://outdoorselfreliance.com/survival-products/

thanks in advance

Hi,

With Wordpress, we'd highly recommend using the plugin rather than the integration codes placed by hand. Please refer to this post for the details:

Makfruit, thanks!

Can you please elaborate a bit more as to why or how it is better for SEO? I read the other thread, but it didn't really say why the plugin is the preferred method. Regardless, I downloaded the plugin and don't really see much difference, other than options can be checkbox, rather than changing in the code... Not sure how that affects SEO

It's not that I don't believe you, it's just I want to be educated is all

thanks

Hi,

Sure. This article explains how to make Ecwid store indexable by search engines and, in particular, mentions how it's done in our Joomla and Worpdress plugins:

Should you have any question, please let us know.
