I have looked at many of your websites recently and see that many you are not taking advantage of the OrderStorm eCommerce integration with the Google XML Sitemaps plugin or using a Sitemap at all. A sitemap is important – it will get your pages and products indexed by the search engines so shoppers can find you.
Google XML Sitemaps Plugin
Use this specific plugin. OrderStorm eCommerce for WordPress has integrated with this plugin to make sure all your categories and products appear on your sitemap. You can get the plugin by typing ‘Google XML Sitemaps’ into the plugin search in your WordPress dashboard or by downloading it from the wordpress.org repository.
Another thing you can do to get your products indexed better is to make sure you are not using canonical URL tags on the product or category pages. If you are
using the All In One SEO pack, make sure this setting is un-checked (the plugin installs with this setting checked by default – uncheck it!). Check your site and
all SEO plugins to make sure canonical URLs on these pages are disabled.
Install the sitemap, turn off canonical URLs and contact us with your questions. We are hear to help you sort out your requirements and get your settings configured
correctly. Our email address is email@example.com.
Happy Holidays! We wish you the best in 2013 and as always, Happy Selling!
