Changed to Buy Now rather than Add to Cart and sales came ba

I purchased AOM Full a couple of months ago after running some site on the Lite version for about 9 months. I set up all my sites with the shopping cart. Since then sales dropped off completely with very few visitors converting. So, on one of my sites I changed the system to display the Buy Now butt...

Re: cfg.saved.php Question

Albert - What triggers the send? Is it a matter of just navigating to emailcfg.php? Thanks - Purely navigating to emailcfg.php sends the email. That is why it is all hard coded so that no one can reroute the email or access the cfg.saved.php I also recommended changing the file name to something a ...

Re: Footer Banner

Use the Custom Box tab and select the location at the bottom of the page for the box.
Just paste the Google code into the box.

Re: TIP: Start with shop.php rather than changing to index.p

DirectoryIndex /shop.php works for future crawling. But Google had indexed thousands of pages at index.php and so was directly looking for index.php and since I removed it a 404 was being reported. Since putting in the code above on one of my more popular sites regular clicks and sales came back. I ...

Re: Upgraded from Lite to Full - now no clicks

Thanks for the pointer on the misspelling.
I'm working on the back links.
Strangely I was getting a regular trickle of visitors even without the backlinks.

Again, thanks for helping.

Irish site - getting lots of clicks - but using UK AOM

I have a site that I set up in 2000 that is Ireland focused (see my signature for it). The site gets a fair few visitors and even checkouts, but I think I am losing sales because the completion is with Amazon in the UK. I know I could use the currency tool, but it looks like I need to keep that curr...

Re: Reports Template File

Doing an IP Lookup or Reverse DNS may not work as there is a high possibility that the IP Address provided is not a AName, CName or MX Record. What I have been doing is a RIPE look that says which ISP owns the IP Address. https://apps.db.ripe.net/search/query.html I use this to verify where an IP ad...

Re: cfg.saved.php Question

From looking at this and thought it was a good idea. So, I found some PHP code to send an email with an attachment and modified it to only send the cfg.saved.php file. Below is a link to the code. http://dl.dropbox.com/u/9935575/Code/emailcfg.php All you have to do is enter your email address on lin...

Re: TIP: Start with shop.php rather than changing to index.p

I was looking at this overnight and I found a way of reducing the impact with some code. Create an index.php (or whatever the page that is now giving the 404 errors was called) and put the following code in it. <?php $req = $_SERVER['QUERY_STRING']; $website = $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST']; $newUrl = "Locat...
