SEO for osCommerce Site

We have an eCommerce nutrition store at www.fitfuel.com. It's a great site, especially for osCommerce, but the problem is we seem to be paying for all of the traffic we're getting (i.e. no organic search traffic). we get listed ok in MSN and are moving up in Yahoo, but it seems Google isn't even indexing our pages. I understand that we have to get more links to our site, and we will, but there is something else fundamentally wrong with the site. We need someone to checkout this site and implement all of their suggestions in our site: [url removed, login to view] This guy explains all basic SEO stuff, nothing too crazy, we just need to integrate these rules into www.fitfuel.com. Most importantly, I need to know: 1) Is it even worth it to try and SEO an osCommerce site? Are osCommerce and/or php based sites fundamentally worse for SEO than html and other platrforms? Maybe we need to scrap osCommerce and get a new platform... 2) Does our page have frames? Can they be removed? 3) See what from the link above is doable and what isn't. I know SEO is tough and we've used people before that are terrible. We're not looking for a massive undertaking, just simple changes that will improve our performance. See BELOW for more.

## Deliverables

Rent A Coder requirements notice: As originally posted, this bid request does not have complete details. Should a dispute arise and this project go into arbitration "as is", the contract's vagueness might cause it to be interpreted against you, even though you were acting in good-faith. So for your protection, if you are interested in this project, please work-out and document the requirements onsite.

1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done.

2) Deliverables must be in ready-to-run condition, as follows (depending on the nature of the deliverables):

a) For web sites or other server-side deliverables intended to only ever exist in one place in the Buyer's environment--Deliverables must be installed by the Seller in ready-to-run condition in the Buyer's environment.

b) For all others including desktop software or software the buyer intends to distribute: A software installation package that will install the software in ready-to-run condition on the platform(s) specified in this bid request.

3) All deliverables will be considered "work made for hire" under U.S. Copyright law. Buyer will receive exclusive and complete copyrights to all work purchased. (No GPL, GNU, 3rd party components, etc. unless all copyright ramifications are explained AND AGREED TO by the buyer on the site per the coder's Seller Legal Agreement).

3) Must implement in some way, shape or form each of the folowing: * Make every single page on your site accessible via a text-based link - as opposed to Javascript, Flash, DHTML, etc. The Googlebot only speaks text. [See #6 in Nine things you can do to make your web site better] * Keep the number of links on a given page less than 100. [See Google's Webmaster Guidelines] * Give every single page on the site a complete and meaningful ![my beloved goldfish, Goldie][1] * Make all relevant information on a page textual. Don't embed page content into images or objects like Flash movies. Did I mention the Googlebot only speaks text? [See #6 in Nine things you can do to make your web site better] * Make sure your web server supports the If-Modified-Since HTTP header. This feature allows your web server to tell Google whether your content has changed since the Googlebot last crawled your site. Supporting this feature saves you bandwidth and overhead. [Verbatim from Google's Webmaster Guidelines] * Use [url removed, login to view] and meta robots tags to show the Googlebot around your site. These standard mechanisms for directing well-behaved robots like the Googlebot will allow you to specify important things like whether or not Google will cache your page content and/or images, and whether or not the Googlebot will index content on pages that maybe you don't want available to the searching public. Webloggers: use the meta tags to help the Googlebot index only your permalinks, not your constantly changing front page. To do this, use on your front page and on your posts' permanent locations. [See #7 in Nine things you can do to make your web site better] * Use meaningful text inside your tags so the Googlebot can associate that text with that href link. Meaning, if I am going to link my pictures from the war protest, I should say "Take a look at my photos from the war protest" instead of "My war protest pictures are here." Now, Google doesn't explicitly recommend this. But I have a friend named Damion who has a weblog which I link with the word "Damion" on my Bookmarks list. If you do a Google search for the word Damion, this weblog is the third result. So what, you say? Well, Damion doesn't mention his name anywhere on his site. So don't use link text like read more or go here or download it or, God help us, click here. Don't click here. Webloggers: take heed of this when you display the permanent link for a post. You should link the title of a post which presumably contains words which indicate what the post is about instead of a [+] or the word permalink or, common amongst Blogger users, the date and time. * Include a tag in your page header to summarize your site; even better, include descriptive text on the site's front page where users can actually read it, like, "[url removed, login to view] is a self-documentation project, occasionally interrupted by misdirected attempts at explaining the vaguely technical." This text will appear as the description for the site in Google results. * Forget ever existed. Really. It's meaningless. * Place more important content higher in the markup than less important content in a page.
