there's a session id killer contribution ;)

 

disable session id's for spiders via stock osc (admin panel configuration) and session id's will have no impact on your ranking

 

sesion id's or no session id's - it's not the software that determines your rank, it's the usefulness of your overall website.

it's a LOT of work to get a good ranking if you're selling common items/keywords

what works for others won't necessarily work for you. there's a lot of topics about seo and there's several seo contributions to add to your oscommerce shop:

 

- search engine friendly url's

- meta tags generator

etc, etc.

 

i've had several seo experts look over my own site before, while they deemed it excellent for seo, i come accross tiny problems every now and then, that they overlooked.

 

trial and error is the best way to rank good on the search engines

have turned the session ids off but they still show up any other ideas ?

If your session ids are showing up in the url you've got the setup wrong. Most likely in the configure.php file.

Local: Mac OS X 10.5.8 - Apache 2.2/php 5.3.0/MySQL 5.4.10 • Web Servers: Linux

Tools: BBEdit, Coda, Versions (Subversion), Sequel Pro (db management)

prevent spider sessions - true?

force cookie use - true/false?

use cache - true?

is the cache directory correct?

 

 

i may be missing something, but i pulled these from my admin cp settings
