Question

SEO For a custom-build site


Using the SEO kb-article to add Google AJAX indexing to my custom ecwid site. Seems to be working for the categories, but can not get the title to display (under advanced options in the article). Any idea what might be wrong. Here is the site: http://www.best-inverters.com/

Thanks,
John D.

As far as I can see, it perfectly works - just check the title of this product details page: http://www.best-inverters.com/?_esca...ct/id=23475016

Thanks. I understand now that the _escaped_fragment tells indexing code what to build. Using the Google Web Master tools I view the page as a Google Bot but did not see the additional html. So when Google indexes a site it adds in the _escaped_fragment to the url?

Thanks,
John D.

Yes, according to Google's documentation on AJAX indexing, when a bot encounters a URL with #! in it (the kind of URLs Ecwid currently uses) or sees the <meta name="fragment"> in the page source, it makes the hash (or meta value) into the _escaped_fragment_ GET parameter and queries that URL for the crawlable snippet. This applies both to categories and products in Ecwid's. If you are going to check how your store is visible to the search bots, you need to act like a search bot, so using the above technique carefully you can see the Ecwid's pages as the Google bot would see them.
