The e-commerce.

Is this normal?


Recommended Posts

Hey All,

Maybe I'm being paranoid or impatient, but here goes.

We recently installed the SEF URL mod to our store which was suprisingly ranking pretty well without that mod. I thought it would be a good investment to add this mod to further improve our rankings.


Now I noticed a huge amount of bots the other day on the site, it put it to a crawl and we have our own server. I know noticed on google that our pages are being ranked lower than it was previously and in some cases not there at all.


My questions are


1. Will I or am I being penalized because the bots are going to the older URL's and see that it is being redirected to the new URL? Does it think it is a duplicated page?


2. Am I being re-indexed thus the reason for my results not showing up?


Thanks :)

You can expect a drop in the rankings whenever you make such a change. It should recover within a few weeks if your site was placed well.
