“Will my search engine rankings drop after the switch to Magento?” is one of the most often asked SEO questions I see regarding Magento. Unfortunately, there is no “Yes/No” answer. No matter which e-commerce solution you were using prior to switch, your rankings might get effected. Switching to Magento might change some of your on-site optimization elements including:

  • URL structure
  • Meta data
  • On-site elements structure
  • Internal linking
  • Distance of deep links from the homepage

Adding Magento products to Google Base

Magento made adding products to Google Base (Google Product Search) a pretty simple process that can be done using Magento’s admin interface. This guide will tell you how to do it and how to fix known issues.

First of all, I wanna show you this really nice screencast I found on Vimeo that guides you through the process of adding your Magento products to Google Base, however you will probably have some issues after you follow the screencast since it doesn’t really tell you everything there is to know.

UPDATE (November 2010): “product_type”

Google Base recently started to require a product type attribute. You need to create a new attribute called “Product Type” and map it with Google’s “product_type” attribute. For instructions, have a look further in this blog post how we created the Condition attribute. The process is the same. For the list of supported values for the “Product type” attribute, refer to the table here.

Creating cron script in Magento

Creating Magento cron script is very simple thing. First of all we have to create the module, (I hope that you know how to create magento module) and add in config.xml file next code:

5
6
7
8
<crontab>
<jobs>
<inchoo_birthday_send>
<schedule><cron_expr>0 1 * * *</cron_expr></schedule>
<run><model>birthday/observer::sendBirthayEmail</model></run>
</inchoo_birthday_send>
</jobs>
</crontab>

Next step, we have to create model file observer.php (in folder model) with method sendBirthayEmail

The Members plug-in by Justin Tadlock is a very young plug-in (0.1) and is compatible with WordPress 2.8. This new Membership Plug-in adds a series of components that you can activate based on your needs. The Members plugin is meant to be a complete user, role, and content management plugin for WordPress. Its purpose is to give you fine-grained control over who has access to what. Right now, it’s in the early stages of development.

I’ll be testing it on a new personal project here<. The basic modules are WordPress Roles Manager (Edit Roles and New Roles) that allow to create and assign WordPress capabilities to existing Roles and to create new Roles.
