Re: Using 301 redirects for SEO good or bad?

Hey there Craig (or anyone else),

I was just wondering if I might bug you a bit for how to polish off this particular part? I feel like I've almost got it, but for some reason the URL just gets a little screwed up along the way...


Any help appreciated!
Thanks,
Jared

Re: how to add custom TITLE to every product pages ?

Hi,

I've got OC 1.4.9.3. I'm just not sure how to "globally change all controllers"? Sorry for a dumb question :S


Thank you,

Re: Move Google Translate into language / currency bar

Hey everyone,

Was just wondering if anyone has had time to check this out? As I mentioned, I think I'm quite close - I just don't know the HTML / CSS / PHP /... enough to polish it off.


Thank you,
Jared

Re: NEEDED - Q&A Section in Product

Hi! I've just made a modification that gives OpenCart a Q & A section. For further information see the modification at http://www.opencart.com/index.php?route=extension/extension/info&extension_id=1328 B That looks fantastic! How much would you charge for a "Specs" tab? I'd just like to be able to ...

Re: Move Google Translate into language / currency bar

Hey Craig, Thanks for stopping by. Unfortunately, putting this mod in the way it is now makes things look unprofessional and messy, and I therefore have only tested it at around midnight for periods of just a few minutes. I wouldn't want to leave this mod live for real potential customers to see. On...

Re: removing language/currency bar

Hey Craig, You asked that I let you know when I tried making this happen, and I just wanted to post here that I started a new thread for this (not sure if that was needed, but I did :S ). I think I've almost got it figured out, and you can check out the details here: http://forum.opencart.com/viewto...

Move Google Translate into language / currency bar

Hi, I simply want to move the Google Translate "Select Language" selector next to the default currency selector. I have already removed the default language selector. The reason I want to do this is that I have a lot of custom content on my site (which the default OpenCart translate tool would miss)...

Re: Custom Title Tags

Hi, This looks great - but I'd rather be able to input the words for the title tag from a source other than the meta keywords field. I know that they say most of the search engines don't use them at all...but I'm hesitant to completely disregard them :S Is there a simple way to still get custom titl...

Re: Using 301 redirects for SEO good or bad?

Ha, ok - I must admit I got a little confused through there. What I did get was that I can use the different coding for redirects. I have input: redirect 301 /StoreFront/Apple-MacBook-MC024LLA http://domain/StoreFront/Buy-MacBook/Buy-MacBook-MC024LLA What I get: http://domain/StoreFront/Buy-MacBook/...

Re: Using 301 redirects for SEO good or bad?

Craig, Thanks again. I guess I must be even more confused about all of this than I thought. I thought that the above code did indeed perform a 301 redirect, as per the [R=301,L] text at the end? All of my redirects have been done by using the code in my last post. Are those sort of redirects bad for...

Re: Using 301 redirects for SEO good or bad?

I've recently changed all of my product and category URL's (what a NIGHTMARE even for just ten products and four categories). The word "buy" is a very big keyword for my products, so I really needed to integrate that. While I've already removed them from Google and blocked them in robots.txt, I need...

Re: Using 301 redirects for SEO good or bad?

Craig,

Thanks for the info. Wow - I figured it would take a few days at most.

I was also wondering if:
Disallow: /*sort*

Wouldn't be better than:

Disallow: /*?sort
Disallow: /*&sort

?


Thank you,
Jared

Re: Using 301 redirects for SEO good or bad?

Craig, Good points - thanks for the tips. Just came up with yet another question / issue... Google Webmaster Tools was complaining that I had lots of duplicate content, as per having not blocked the sorting of each page. However, I have long since made the following entries in my robots.txt: Disallo...

Re: Using 301 redirects for SEO good or bad?

Craig, Good to know - I'll re-allow my electronics folder. I was also curious to know - how often does Google re-check / update my robots.txt? Every time a sitemap is submitted, or on some other schedule? About the www. or non www., what I was asking was - is it a best practice to have one or the ot...

Re: 301 redirects for the homepage

Hey zugu, I've just been battling this same thing. I had absolutely no luck with cPanel's 301 redirects...found them useless, though I can't say why they had no effect. What I did was went into my .htacess file and set up all of the redirects from there. I have these entries (among others) in my rob...

Re: NEEDED - Q&A Section in Product

That's fantastic! Looks really good, nice work. I'm sure that your customers will be looking at that quite a lot.

Can I ask which files you had to modify? I just want to make a specifications tab, but do not know how.


Thank you,
Jared
