Sales to Date: 5.56 Yesterday I talked about why I chose Shopify over Big Commerce for our new ecommerce platform for Chopping Today, I’ll be walking through migrating our store from Miva Merchant 9 over to Shopify. Because I’ll be moving over 2,493 historical orders, 374 products, over 2,000(!Once you go live with your optimized pages, you can sit back and let Optimizer do the work. Without vast amounts of server power, most dynamic shopping carts slow to a crawl, sending customers away... It happens all the time: a site experiences a huge spike in traffic and WHAM! With Merchant Optimizer, you not only get better search engine performance, but also peace of mind knowing that you can handle almost any traffic load, even on a shared server.What would happen if your site suddenly received 100,000 hits an hour? Even if you just keep it handy so it can be switched in at a moments notice, the small investment in Optimizer pays off a thousand-fold when you get your 15 minutes of fame.This simple module provides you the ability to offer a discount on one or more categories of products in your store.The discount percent can be set by category, and any product that is in the named category will be discounted for all shoppers.Of course, Weiland's or Sebenza's Category Tree modules also give you full design control over the Category Tree so we consider the purchase of either of these modules to be essential for any MM5 store. The pages you should be trying to get listed highly in search engines are your product and category pages and so links to those pages are the ones to make search engine friendly.Search engines are wary of dynamically generated pages because they can create problems for their robots and due to the probable creation of duplicate pages which lessens the relevancy of their search results.
So, whether you run Optimizer pages on a day to day basis, or just keep it on hand in case your 15 minutes of fame comes due, Optimizer will surely be one of the best investments you can make.
As a follow up to Copernicus, James Harrell (former Director of Software development for Miva) founded e Media Sales to build the next generation of modules focused exclusively on Miva Merchant 5.
These modules simply can't be beat, and are guaranteed to be high quality!
So for example, we want to make our link to our Coyote Torolla CE Automatic 2006 product page, from the Torolla Category page, look like this: With MIVA Merchant 5, you don't need to buy and install a special search friendly links module as was required for MIVA Merchant 4 (i.e.
Copernicus' "Search Friendly Links" or Pixel Composer's SEO Links).
