[osCommerce] URL keywords

Postby Inferi » Mon Apr 21, 2008 10:28 am

Hi,

I'm interested in purchasing the Magic SEO URL for OsCommerce, it seems the best add-on available at the moment. I would like to know first if it's possible to have URLs in the form of:

http: // www . domain . com / category-name-15 / subcategory-name-23 / product-name-81.html

to a more simple one, such as:

http: // www . domain . com /category-name / subcategory-name / product-name.html


That would be perfectly what I'm looking for.
(spaces added to avoid url transformation above)

My question is medium to high importance, with a tendency to the high. I think no conflicts should appear, since the odds of having the exact same product name in the same category name are rather slim.

Let me know please.

Thanks in advance!

Thank you for your interest. This can be done only by customizing MSU, which is expensive for most customers. Anyway, if you are interested, PM or email me for details.

Hi. When you say "This can be done only by customizing MSU", do you mean that we can make this customisation, or does this have to be done by you? Many thanks.

Is there any advantage in terms of page ranking if there are no numbers in the url for the category, sub-category and product?

I don't think so, it only looks better. However, the default MSU 2.0 configuration of products URIs does not include categories so such links looks pretty tiny (this thread has been started year ago).

Does MSU have this functionality now, no numbers in the url?

If not, what do you charge for the customization? (OScommerce 2.2).
We allready own many MSU licences, this would be the greatest improvement.


Thanks!!

Numbers are included in category and product URIs in order to provide a number of smart features such as safe change of URIs, avoid typos which result in HTTP 404 Not Found (i.e. losing customer), URI shortening, duplicate content protection, smart redirects and many more.

During the last 7 years we gathered wide variety of feedback about MSU with IDs included from our customers. It turned out that many of our customers managed to build top ranking web sites with IDs in URIs in very competitive markets. Therefore we kept the design since benefits are significant (features, performance etc.).
