Hi guys,

I am desperate to get this right. I have a client who requires me o do a site selling meds online. He has over 75 products all with different dosages and quantities and wants them all to be search engine friendly.

He has a .csv which I would be able to import into virtuemart and save a lot of time but how can I make sure the search engines can crawl the product pages through virtuemart? Obviously they are dynamic pages called from the DB so the spiders don't usually index these pages...is there a way around this?

Any help would be greatly appreciated

They will be indexed, but there is of course a lot of additional things you can do like adding SEF URLs and such.

ther is a problem with the product pages. google will not index all of them. he indexed most the category browse page.

i do not know if there is a bug or just google. i have hundered of products with no special name for each. like Product Type - Model number 1; Product type - model numer 2; ....

google seems to see this like spamming him if you do not have a different product description short and long text. but also he preferred the category display page instead to go into the product. i do not know why but i think someoane has to look at this.

Dude, what are you talking about. Post your URL, and I will tell you exactly why they are not indexed.

the product page:
http://www.invitatielanunta.ro/invitatii-de-nunta/invitatii-de-nunta-model-70725.html


the paths to the page. don„t tell me google did not find the way”

http://www.invitatielanunta.ro/search.html?ordering=&searchphrase=all&searchword=70725


the product page is not actualy the page who appears as results in google search. google display other pages or products where the product appear only as related, in the description of search results, but actualy he is not find the product or he exclude it.

i hoppe you see same results as me since google display other things if you are logged in in a google account (mail,webmaster tools ...) as when you are not logged in into google.
