Free SEO Service for Yahoo! Stores for a Limited Time

Posted on March 23rd, 2009 by Matt Sampson - Colorado Web Solutions

Spring is in the air! The days are starting to warm up here in Colorado (slowly..) and I’m ready to celebrate the arrival of spring and the slow retreat of winter! What better way to celebrate than offering Free Services!? :)

I’m very happy to announce that for an extremely limited time, we have decided to waive the set up fees ($50) and provide your first month Free (another $15) when you give a try with your Yahoo! Store. That’s a $65 savings for you and a free month to try out our SEO reporting and services for your Yahoo! Store.

If you would like to try out this Free No Risk Trial Offer, please head over to right now and sign up. Like I said, this is an extremely limited promotion, so don’t delay.

What is was built for one simple purpose. We provide SEO Submissions, Tips and Advice, Set Up and Reporting for Yahoo! Stores. Rates start at only $15 a month and each month you will receive detailed SEO reports (examples here) as well as regular submissions to the major search engines like Google, Yahoo,, etc. Additionally, we will ensure that your Yahoo! Store has a Google site map installed and running, and that it has been posted with Google and verified. We will also make sure your catalog feeds are turned on and active for the shopping comparison engines including Google Base (also known as Google Product Submit or Froogle).

Are you using the Yahoo! Store Web Analytics?

Posted on March 17th, 2009 by Matt Sampson - Colorado Web Solutions

When most savvy web users think of analytics, they think of Google Analytics. It’s free, easy to use, fairly intuitive and did I mention that it’s free? While Google Analytics provides good top level data for websites, you do get what you pay for.  The Google Analytics data provides you a great summary of some critical aspects of your site’s traffic, but it falls short (especially with Yahoo! Stores) at having reliable data to drill down and analyze. In addition, the Google Analytics code that is provided to you from Google itself does not function completely with Yahoo! Stores, so you either have to sacrifice some sales data, or you have to pay someone to write an additional script to make Google Analytics work on Yahoo! Stores.

But it’s free! Yes it is, and we don’t discourage use of Google Analytics (we use it!), but we do discourage the use of ONLY Google Analytics. If you are a Yahoo! Store owner and do not have the base level package, you have access to some of the best analytics software available right from within your store. And you’re already paying for it, so start using it!

Update your Yahoo! Store’s Copyright Dates

Posted on March 16th, 2009 by Matt Sampson - Colorado Web Solutions

I was tooling around on the internet this weekend (surprise, surprise!) and was alarmed by the number of sites that have outdated copyright notices at the bottom of their pages. I know, it’s not the first thing on everyone’s mind on January 1st, but, it’s March now. Time to make the move if you haven’t.
