Ecommerce SEO

Spark Pay online stores are search engine friendly with custom Meta Tags and Page Titles, Custom URLs, and SEO-optimized layouts to Custom HTML blocks, and much more.

SEO Friendly URLs & Custom URLs

Automatic URL Rewriting, provided by our ecommerce optimization features, turns long, dynamic page addresses into static, keyword filled search engine friendly addresses to boost your product pages in the rankings. Most other shopping carts use query string parameters to display every product through one page, such as /Product.aspx?ProductID=2, which can severely limit your SEO rankings. Spark Pay automatically generates SEO friendly URLs that include relevant keyword text, such as "/product.html".

Specify your own custom URL or path to a page for any product, manufacturer, category or content page. Override the default automatically generated Ecommerce SEO optimized URL with your own. Such as "whatever-you-want.html" or "www.yourdomain.com/yourchoice/"

Keyword-Dense HTML Pages

Spark Pay automatically optimizes the page title, meta tags, alt text and URL of every page and items on your pages in your site for optimum search engine placement. It also allows you to override the automatic settings. Additionally it 'removes' unneeded markup typically needed for dynamic automated systems such as long control names in the html markup resulting in higher keyword to markup ratios.

Keep Page Rank When Moving to Spark Pay

Changing all of your URLs when switching shopping cart providers can destroy your sales if you are not careful. Google will drop all of your existing links if they receive 404 File Not Found errors when they check for page updates. Using the global URL Rewriting in Spark Pay SEO Shopping Cart Software you can provide all of your old URLs and point them to your new Spark Pay URLs with 301 Permanent Redirects.
