A browser title is the wording you see at the very top of your computer screen.  Generally it is either a blue or green colored bar that runs the entire length of your computer screen.  When you visit a website, you will notice that the colored bar at the very top of your computer screen has various keywords, domain name, etc. concerning that website.

For instance, when we visit the home page of we will see that the browser title says, "Make Your Own Website - Your Make a Website Builder."  This is the browser title for that page.

What can it do for you?  Well, this depends on the search engine.  Browser titles are more helpful in achieving a better ranking in Yahoo, MSN, AOL, etc.  Google does not put as much emphasis on the browser titles, however it is still of value to set each page separately.

How do you set your browser title with  Login and click on edit.  Then select the red button at the top that says, "Page List."  Find the page you would like to edit the browser title and click on "Properties" next to that page listing.  Next, type in your keywords in the second field titled, "Page Title: (displayed in your browser title bar)."

Put a sentence or words that are keyword rich for your browser title on each page. For example, lets say you are selling digital cameras on a page.  A possible browser title for this page could be: Sony Digital Cameras, Cannon, Nikkon Digital Cameras, 35mm Cameras.

Note: Each page should have it's own browser title that is keyword rich and specific for that page.  If you are unsure what keywords to use, check out a few of your competitor's websites to see what is working for them. Taking time to set your browser titles will help you achieve a better ranking over time.

Note: You may also see title tags referred to as "meta titles" or "meta title tags" in some cases. While controversial with some, either usage is typically fine.

Included in the latest release is the option for ecommerce account holders to setup an affiliate program. Using this feature the merchant can setup a commission rate to be earned by the affiliates and banners for the affiliates to display on their websites. Orders created by visitors who reach the site via these banners will be tracked and an affiliate payment will be computed. The merchant can keep track of their affiliate payments via their website admin.

How it works:

The merchant creates an affiliate program with a percentage based commission via the affiliates area in the Store section. They setup an affiliate commission rate and write up how the affiliate program works in the program description area. Then they add banners that the affiliates will have to choose from to display on their website.

Affiliates are created via the User accounts system. This can be done via the normal user account to a group methods: manually enter the affiliate user, create a form that sets up the submission as a user in the group, the standard create account option

Once the affiliate user is created, the affiliate logs in via the My account area and clicks the affiliate tab. They can see details of the affiliate program and grab HTML to display the merchant's banner on the affiliate website. Sales completed by customers who reach the site by clicking the banner will be tracked and commissions will be applied to the affiliate.

The merchant can view the amount owed to the affiliate and register a payment by finding the user in the user accounts area (affiliate group) and clicking the affiliate tab. The merchant would still need to actually send the payment to the affiliate.

In our latest release, orders will now be automatically archived. Order states of Completed, Shipped, and Cancelled will automatically be moved to the history area after 3 months. All other order states will automatically be moved to history after 6 months. Merchants can still access these orders by clicking the history link in their order manager area or by entering the order id in the search field. Ecommerce reports will still reflect information for all completed and shipped orders even if the order has been archived. This adjustment increases the performance of the order management area. Merchants with a large number of orders that they did not archive themselves, will see a significant increase in the loading time of their order manager.
