Moving the Home Page to the Root Directory

Last Updated: May 07, 2014 05:33PM EDT
Moving the home page to the root of your store is not necessary. You can safely and effectively redirect visitors to your store's home page in a search engine friendly manner. Being two levels down from the root of the domain is simply not considered a relevant ranking factor.
 

301 Permanent Redirect


The correct, search engine friendly way to redirect visitors (including search engine robots) to your ProductCart-powered home page is to place an index page in the root (typically a file named “default.asp”) that contains the following code (change productcart to match your folder structure):
 
<% Response.Status = "301 Moved Permanently" Response.AddHeader "Location", "productcart/pc/home.asp" Response.End %>

Here is a default.asp file that you can use for this purpose. Again, remember to change the path to ”home.asp” as you might have renamed the productcart folder on your Web server.
