I was wondering im not done with adding all of my products in my store and I still have to add some more categories...do you think I should submit my site once I get done with everything or should I do it now?? because isnt it good that the search engines see new content being added??? Any Thoughts???

when your website is ready to serve the customers & all contributions are working without any issues.

Please read this line: Do you want to find all the answers to your questions? click here. As for contribution database it's located here!

8 people out of 10 don't bother to read installation manuals. I can recommend: if you can't read the installation manual, don't bother to install any contribution yourself.

Before installing contribution or editing/updating/deleting any files, do the full backup, it will save to you & everyone here on the forum time to fix your issues.

Any issues with oscommerce, I am here to help you.

Don't look now, but your site is already showing up on Google and Yahoo! search engines.

B)

If I suggest you edit any file(s) make a backup first - I'm not perfect and neither are you.

Hi, I have noticed this...but how is that possible when I haven't even submitted it to any search engines yet???? How did you find my site by typing in my url???

Google crawls this site 24/7 I think.

 

Whatever search engines it shows up on probably got it from your posts here.

I don't think meta-tags is done correctly.

:blush:

 

Looking at the HTML source on the "Infections" page I see:

 

<title>Natural Herbs - Herbal Medicine - Alternative Medicine</title>

<meta name="Description" content="We provide natural herbs, herbal medicine, and alternative medicine" />

<meta name="Keywords" content="natural herbs, herbal medicine, alternative medicine, herbs, dr.goss, herbal solutions, herbal laxative, cleansing herbs, detox herbs, buy herbs online, healing herbs, herb store, herbal cleansing, online herb store, new body herbs, herbal weight loss" />

<meta name="googlebot" content="all" />

<meta http-equiv="Content-Language" content="en-US" />

<meta name="robots" content="noodp" />

<meta name="slurp" content="noydir" />

<meta name="robots" content="index, follow" />

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />

<!-- EOF: Header Tags SEO Generated Meta Tags -->

<title>Infections - Natural Herbs 4 Natural Living</title>

<META NAME="Description" Content="- Infections from Natural Herbs 4 Natural Living">

<META NAME="Keywords" Content="infections,">

Note how the emphasized lines repeat, but with different content.

 

They should only appear once in the <head> section.

I have installed cdynamic meta tags installed and I dont know what im suppose to input in these sections in the meta tag files, would this be the reason for what you have pointed out?... do I provide what I want it to say after the product and category???? How would the keywords play into all the pages??

 

# For all pages using meta_tags:

define('HEAD_TITLE_TAG_ALL',''); # Title

define('HEAD_DESC_TAG_ALL',''); # Description

define('HEAD_KEY_TAG_ALL',''); # Keywords

 

# For default index page (no products or categories)

define('HEAD_TITLE_TAG_INDEX',''); # Title

define('HEAD_DESC_TAG_INDEX',''); # Description

define('HEAD_KEY_TAG_INDEX',''); # Keywords

?>

The content looks correct.

 

I was only pointing out the fact the the meta tags I emphasized should only appear once.

 

On your pages the tags

 

<title>....</title>

<META NAME="Description" Content=....>

<META NAME="Keywords" Content=...>

appear twice.

If I suggest you edit any file(s) make a backup first - I'm not perfect and neither are you.

Do you know what can be causing this to display this way?? And how is it suppose to appear??

It's probably not installed correctly.

 

The tags I have in red should be at the top replacing the ones in black.

Thank you for helping me out with this....I think it might have something to do with when I modified my index.php file during the installation it said... find this <title><?php echo TITLE; ?></title> and replace with

<?php

# cDynamic Meta Tags

/*<title><?php echo TITLE; ?>*/

require(DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'meta_tags.php');

#

?>

 

but I modified that line in an earlier installation with header tags seo...so I did this...

<!doctype html public "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
<html <?php echo HTML_PARAMS; ?>>
<head>

<?php
/*** Begin Header Tags SEO ***/
if ( file_exists(DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'header_tags.php') ) {
 require(DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'header_tags.php');
} else {
?>
 <?php $category_name_query = tep_db_query("select categories_name from " . TABLE_CATEGORIES_DESCRIPTION . " where categories_id = " . (int)$current_category_id . " and language_id = " . (int)$languages_id); $category_name = tep_db_fetch_array($category_name_query); ?>
<title>
<?php
if ((int)$current_category_id <= 0) {
	echo TITLE;
} else {
	echo '' . $category_name['categories_name'] . '';
}
?>
</title>
<?php
}
/*** End Header Tags SEO ***/
?>
<?php 
# cDynamic Meta Tags
/*<title><?php echo TITLE; ?>*/
require(DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'meta_tags.php');
#
?>

 

 

is it possible to have both of these contributions installed?? is this the reason it is displayed like this??

 

I also did this same modification in my product info.php file...

I think you've hit the nail on the head.

 

You can't have two meta tag contribs. installed at the same time.

 

Choose one and nix the other.
