Hello all,

I do have the same problem. But I do use a multilingual site.
As I'm not a coder I was hoping that you would have a solution :-)

Thanks anyway.

Re: XC SEO v1.1.0 Released
 
4.1.3, get_language.php modification

Find:

Code:

if (
        ($current_area == "C" || $current_area == "B") &&
        !empty($HTTP_GET_VARS["sl"]) &&
        !defined('IS_ROBOT') &&
        !preg_match('/\.html?($|\?)|\/$/s', $l_redirect)
) {
        func_header_location($l_redirect);
}


Replace With:
Code:

if (($current_area == "C" || $current_area == "B") && !empty($HTTP_GET_VARS["sl"]) && !defined('IS_ROBOT')) {

        ############################################################

Re: XC SEO v1.1.0 Released
 
Can i ask if i should consider incorperating this in my newly purchased x-cart.

Viejo 10-29-2006 10:10 AM

Re: XC SEO v1.1.0 Released
 
My opinion: Absolutely. Especially if you don't want to change urls in your cart after they have been indexed by the search engines.

Re: XC SEO v1.1.0 Released
 
Just downloaded this file and unzipped it, uploaded it but the thing is where should it be enabled. I am assuming its in modules but i cannot see it.

So to give a beeter understanding of how i uploaded it:

catalog/.htaccess into = /public_html/mystore/catalog/
modules/XC_SEO = /public_html/mystore/modules/ *
sql/xcseo.sql,xcseo_remove.sql,xcseo_lng_US.sql = /public_html/mystore/sql/
x-cart-seo docs = /public_html/mystore/ *
.htaccess = /public_html/mystore/
robots.txt = /public_html/mystore/
secure.htaccess = /public_html/mystore/

The two with a red * i am unsure if this is correct or whether the files in these folders are to be entered.

As it stands i just put the whole XC_SEO folder into /public_html/mystore/modules/ as i did with the x-cart-seo docs into the /public_html/mystore/


Thanks again if someone can help[me out here

Re: XC SEO v1.1.0 Released
 
ezi, you've uploaded the files properly, now you need to execute the SQL commands as noted in the docs (look in the xcseo docs folder, the install file for your version).

additionally there are a few files you need to edit, as noted in the docs

ezi designs 10-30-2006 02:35 AM

Re: XC SEO v1.1.0 Released
 
I have followed the install instruction to INSTALL 4.1.3 under x-cart-seo docs but when doing so i receive the follow error:

This is what i entered into the 'Apply SQL patch' in admin:

Refer to the following files for SQL commands:
sql/xcseo.sql
sql/xcseo_lng_US.sql


INVALID SQL: 1064: You have an error in your syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MYSQL server version for the right syntax to use near ▒Refer to the following files for SQL commands: sql/xcseo.sql sql/xcseo_lng_US.▓at line 1
SQL QUERY FAILURE: Refer to the following files for SQL commands: sql/xcseo.sql sql/xcseo_lng_US.sql

Any advice will be most welcome,

Thanks

intel352 10-30-2006 06:28 AM

Re: XC SEO v1.1.0 Released
 
Wow, 2nd person to do this in this thread...

you need to open the following files for SQL commands:
sql/xcseo.sql
sql/xcseo_lng_US.sql

Awesome mod ! this is truly THE best mod for xcart out. Can't wait for the catagory rewrites that will make this mod even greater :)

Keep up the good work intel :)

Heres the site im working on: http://www.consoleasia.com . Great Design, works great with clean urls :)

Re: XC SEO v1.1.0 Released
 
intel, I'm having a different problem with Froogle export now. Per you suggestion, I replaced my Froogle.php with a clean one from 4.0.19 and then inserted your udpated code. The export file truncates the link to my store root. If I remove the XC_SEO code from froogle.php it exports the link correctly. I think I remember there being a fix to this somewhere, but I can't remember or find it.

BTW, my froogle problem with invalid characters might be a Google Base issue with the bulk upload feature.

I know i sound thich but can you explain what you mean by;

you need to open the following files for SQL commands:
sql/xcseo.sql

Real sorry for asking again intel

Thanks

ShishaPipeUK 10-30-2006 03:55 PM

Re: XC SEO v1.1.0 Released
 
You need to open the file xcseo.sql and copy it to your admin patch section, and then apply the patch.

So for the first one xcseo.sql, select the sql patch text inside the file (by highlighting all the text, and pressing "Ctrl + C") and then log into your admin section, select the "Patch/Upgrade" under the Administration section, then look for the Apply SQL patch box which is the last box, and in the SQL query(ies): box paste the code inside it (by pressing "Ctrl + V") from the file xcseo.sql.

Once this is done then click on the Apply button to apply this to your MySql database.

Hope the above makes sense.

intel352 10-30-2006 04:56 PM

Re: XC SEO v1.1.0 Released
 
Thanks for taking the time to explain that to him Shisha, I didn't have any time at work today :-\

ezi: you can apply a SQL patch by going to the admin patch area of X-Cart, scrolling down to the SQL area. there are 2 options, 1 is to upload a file from your harddrive, the other is to paste in the SQL commands directly. you can do either. you have to upload (or paste the contents) of both:
sql/xcseo.sql
sql/xcseo_lng_US.sql

into the X-Cart patch admin.

Hopefully the following link from the X-Cart manual will explain this better.

Scott, if you'd like, I can take a look at your Froogle file for you. PM me the details to your installation, I'll check it tonight or tomorrow. Otherwise, I'd suggest trying the process with a fresh file one more time, paying careful attention to what you copy/paste/insert.

ezi, it's hard to read your code as posted, please post it within CODE blocks

additionally, a T_IF means you modified the code incorrectly. best troubleshooting method is to replace your get_language file with the original file, and try applying the modifications from scratch

there were 2 files included in the XC SEO download. 1 is ".htaccess", the other is "secure.htaccess". It appears you copied the text from the "secure" file, but neglected the text from the regular htaccess. The regular htaccess has what you need

Hi,

Will this mod only work with Apache because of the rewrite rules, will it work in IIS.

Regards,

intel352 11-03-2006 01:14 PM

Re: XC SEO v1.1.0 Released
 
if your installation of IIS has a type of mod rewrite installed, this product might work for you. the problem is, rewrite for IIS is usually an addon that has to be purchased, altho there are 1 or 2 free versions.

Thanks, I appreciate it :-D

This work was started for the sake of my previous employer (didn't want to have to pay for an SEO solution), and the code was released as GNU GPL to hopefully generate a community around the module, so that there would be a good community for testing and improving the code. Additionally, since there wasn't a free SEO solution available, figured this would be a good free addition to x-cart ;-)

First of all thanks for the mod ;) much appreciated. I think i find another error under the froggle section.. here is the current (i'm using 4.13) section that i can find:

# Post string
$post = func_froogle_convert($product['product'], 80)."\t".
func_froogle_convert($product['descr'], 65536)."\t".
$http_location.constant("DIR_CUSTOMER")."/product.php?productid=".$product['productid']."\t".
$tmbn."\t".

Can you please take a look at it for us?

Regards,
Poy

Regarding the supplemental index, Sound Choice Store has a large number of pages showing up as supplemental, yet our hits from users searching in Google has increased from ~300-500/wk to ~700-800/wk consistently, and this past week it has doubled to ~1500/wk

we're getting hits on a large number of varied user searches, with the most popular query only getting 63 hits, so we're actually hitting a wider selection of keywords, which is great.

the best things that can help you tho, are to have other sites linking to you, and especially having other sites linking *deep* into your site (whether into a deep category or specifically to a product).

Also, within your own website, link deep into your shop. Whether by having random "best sellers" or "featured" or whatever.

I looked closer and noticed that so far the only pages that have indexed are categories and manufacturers pages, so its not surprising that they ended up supplemental. Its also been talked that the supplemental index has become very large and is outgrowing the main google index.

I will say that every month I've had substantial increases in traffic. October the site had maybe 250 unique visitors and 350 visits, mostly from the existence of old RJR Products customers. November hit just over 920 unique visitors and almost 1200 visits, and November is looking like it might hit around 1500/2000. Besides submitting a urllist to yahoo, and this work with google webmaster tools, and froogle, is 1 banner ad on a small but growing off-road forum with some threads in the forum as well.

Now if I can only get some more appealing products in the store. Always waiting on someone...

Are you using Google Analytics or something similar to determine the actual source of your traffic? I've found that is a great help. Additionally, it can be used to determine what search terms people are using to find you.

I've been using AW Stats, it runs on the webserver, and most of my traffic isn't really coming from search engines just yet really. alot is just coming from the banner advertising and links from other websites listing vendors that were intact before I started the X-Cart store.

I did $1000 and some change in my first month, and I'm hoping to do $1500 this month, hoping. I've got to get to roughly $2500 a month to cover the cost of my own salary, so we've got a ways to go.

Were getting 4880 links not getting indexed by google might be the .htaccess file
should we have this at the start of it
(DirectoryIndex index.html index.php home.php)
when i put just DirectoryIndex home.php we get errors in iexplorer
And our xml sitemap genorator stopped working wont crawl the site all the pages show as broken links.
Any ideas what would be best for DirectoryIndex?
Thanks Greg
4.1.3

Can someone who's using 4.1.x post their Froggle section please?
I can't get mine to run properly.
