Creating xml-sitemap for images
Xml-sitemap for images was required for more accurate indexation with search engines. For this purpose we created a file, matching common requirements: 1. IMAGE spacename is done according to: xmlns:image="http://www.google.com/schemas/sitemap-image/1.1"; 2. Mandatory usage of tags urlset, url and loc, image:image and image:loc; 3. Includes only open for indexation pages, pages responding with 200 code; 4. Uses UTF-8 coding; 5. Includes up to 50 000 URL; 6. Includes no more than 1000 images for each URL; 7. Size is less than 10 MB.
Creating friendly URLs
Usage of friendly URLs helps in optimizing work and makes navigation easier. Friendly URLs were formed on the basis if the following rules: 1. All pages in Russian used a single variation for transliteration; 2. All punctuation marks and spaces were replaced with “-”, all symbols "_" were also excluded; 3. Other symbols were replaced with "-" as well (except for numbers and letters); 4. Two and more "-" in a row were replaced with one; 5. Deleted “-”, appearing on URL generation at the end or in the beginning of an element; 6. Capital letter were excluded from URL According to new URL templates, old links were replaced with the new ones, also 31 redirect was configured.
Searchform at 404 page
Page 404 is used to display an error, when a requested page was not found on the server (removed, changed URL, etc.). To make navigation easier, a searchform was integrated to page 404, as it allows a user to get back to site faster and continue working with it.
Social networks integration
To interact with popular social networks, like and share buttons were integrated. They allow users to demonstrate site content in their social profiles. Same operation was performed for follow buttons as well, all these measures combined help to increase traffic of a store and attract new customers. Also we integrated OpenGraph protocol, which allows to correctly display content of sitepages in social networks.
