SEO Addons and Meta Tags

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

Sorry if I have not posted this to the correct area, but not sure where it should go. We have designed an oscommerce site is conjunction with another company. We have designed the front end and they have created the backend for us.

 

The website is called www.thelogocentre.co.uk

 

We want to be able to make the URLS SEO friendly so that they will run as www.thelogocentre.co.uk/parentcategory/childcategory/productname rather than how they do at present. We have asked the company to make these changes and they are quoting 32 hours work for this. Although I am not offay with oscommerce, I am with Joomla and Wordpress and know that these have simple plugins that can be installed.

 

I have found this one:

 

http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/2823

 

Basically what I want to know is, are we being taken for a ride when they quote 32 hours work and should the above plugin (or better one) work? OK they have heavily cuistomised the system so that it is updated via a excel spreadsheet by the customer to populate the site, so I am not sure if this is the reason why it would take so long to implement.

 

We also want to be able to make the pages have individual meta tags and again they are quoting 24 hours work - is there also a plugin that could resolve this?

 

Sorry for all the questions but this was our first OSCOMMERCE site and we want to be able to offer it more, but at the prices our development company are charging we are not sure this will be viable!

 

Thanks for your time.

 

Tony

32 hours and 24 hours ?

 

If that was minutes rather than hours, it would be closer.

 

Does that help?

@ G Burton

 

Yer that helps - thats exactly what I was thinking!

 

@ George - there is making money and then is stealing money :) espcially when they are charging £95 a day!

95 per day is relatively inexpensive.

 

However, at their timings, I'd suggest that 32 hours is 4 days, so they are asking you for 4 days work for something that would take perhaps an hour.

For manual individual meta tags you have add-ons like: Header Tags SEO or Modular SEO Header tags

 

If you want exact urls like this: parentcategory/childcategory/productname , there are no current updated add-ons which will give you that..so then their quote is ok.

 

If you can live with another url format, then Ultimate SEO Urls is very easy and fast to install....
