osCommerce

The e-commerce.

Request for site Review


Guest

Recommended Posts

My website is a joint effort with a web design company and myself. They gave me a plain store with a simple installed version of oscommerce, but they did the graphic art and the coding to get it installed.

 

I didn't know a thing about php, so I had to take a crash course to get this store customized, and I thank all of you here who have contributed your time to support this technology. I hope that I will be able to return what I have learned as well when I get to know oscommerce a bit better.

 

My site has been up for several months, but I have been getting my traffic from advertising on web forums. I recently added some SEO contributions and I have been aggresively getting links to help my rankings but I am not moving off of a PR 1.

 

If anyone can look over my site, I would appreciate some friendly reviews and suggestions.

 

The only problem with SEO that I can detect is that I am getting a lot of supplemental listing with google related to popup.php, and I suspect that this might be hurting me althoug not all pages are listed as supplemental.

 

Thanks again for your time.

Thanks for the encouragement and the tip about the address. Even though the address is on the main page and in the footer, I still get people calling me and emailing me for my address.

 

I am not sure whether a template was used or not, as the company I hired was responsible for implementing the graphic desing into the system. I can look and see if there is any evidence of the html template contribution.

You should submit a google site map if you haven't already. + Edit your robots.txt to eliminate unwanted your search results. Check info for webmasters at google.com. + Google analytics is great - I suggest it as well if you aren't already using it. Nice clean site. Eventually, you may want to create spanish copy for your SP section - reach more people.

hi.

error:

when i click http://www.dishjockey.com/lnb-c-25.html

or any other category in the bottom-left corner

 

"could not open XML input".

 

Hello,

Thanks for taking the time to look at my site. I am not seeing that error. Is it possible that it was a temporary issues related to my server?

 

The xml error might imply that the results for the news feed is was not available at the time. I currently am using the news feed contribution, and every page load, it requests the xml results which happen to be a custom query I setup through google to narrrow down the topics.

 

This might be a very inefficient method, and I might have to figure out a way to store the results on my server and have it update once a day.

Thanks for taking the time to review my site and post suggestions.

 

I have already added the site map, and I have had access to webmaster page from google for a couple of weeks now. I went through the list and corrected everything they said to do and I uploaded my site map.

 

My problem is that I was not ranking at all in the top 100 when I added all of my SEO work(header tags and writing good content). A week or so into the SEO work, I started getting ranked on page 5-7 on google for just about all of my product names.

 

I added a bunch of web directories (about 30) a week ago, and since then, I have disappeared from the top 100 on everything except my store name. In fact, I am around the 300s now for SERP.

 

I do have most of my site translated in spanish also, BTW. When I started looking at all of my google results http://www.google.com/search?q=site:www.di...y.com&hl=en , I noticed that all of the spanish pages and all of my product picturers were indexed and listed as the dreaded "supplemental".

 

From what I have been reading about supplemental results, it looks pretty grim for my site, and I don't have a clue where to go from here. Even if I can figure out what went wrong and fix it, it may be next to impossible to get out of the supplemental resutls.

 

Thanks again.
