Quick Shopping Cart Help

Using meta tags for promotion

Custom meta tags allow you to specify the content of the Title tag and the Description and Keywords meta tags for your Quick Shopping Cart storefront's home page. Meta tags play an important role in search engine optimization. Although some of the major search engines are focusing less on these page elements than they used to, well-composed meta content is an integral part of any well-optimized Web page.

Configuring Webmaster Tools

Quick Shopping Cart supports configuration of the Webmaster Tools verification meta tags from Microsoft®, Yahoo!®, and Google®. Configuring such meta tags allows you to view your site statistics and to see how these search engines look at your site.

To use any of these Webmaster Tools on your Quick Shopping Cart site, you must verify with the specific search engine that you own the site. You verify this information by adding meta tag content, provided by the search engine, to your Quick Shopping Cart site.

Configuring Webmaster Tools requires you to generate meta tag content from the search engine, copy the meta tag content to your Quick Shopping Cart, and then verify the site.
