Hey DaniWeb peeps, I am curious as to what factors make a shopping cart "seo friendly?" In other words, what do you look for in a shopping cart that makes it easy to optimize for the search engines??

We use Zen Cart. There is no problem with that. It is easily customizable.

I think you could also make OSC sites seo friendly by using seo plug-ins. The most famous one might be ultimate seo urls.

Magneto is undoubtedly SEO-friendly but there is some stuff that will help you to optimize Magneto SEO.
first, get the most recent release, 1.2.1. then, to get started, enable Server URL rewrites. You will find this setting under System => Configuration => Web => Search Engines Optimization. Another good thing to configure now you are on this screen is "Add store Code to Urls" under "Url Options". In most cases it is better to set this functionality to "No".

Hello!
Indeed, Zen Cart may be a great solution for you in this case. Zen Cart is an outstanding open source system for online store management. It is a PHP-based structure that uses MySQL database and certain HTML components.
This system encounters several languages and supports different types of currency, which are available for free under the GNU General Public License.
Zen Cart evolved from osCommerce as a separate project, but unlike it, Zen Cart supports template custom design. One can always change a ready made design into a new one.
The variety of Zen Cart templates allows you to have the most unique and outstanding store on the net. And yes, it is SEO-friendly :)

Best of luck!

I assume that most of decent carts today are optimized for search engines. I would suggest you to use LiveCart because it not only able to sell physical product but also support selling virtual item such as e-book.

Magento is the best stand alone ecommerce CMS. Has lots of free themes and features.

Whatever you do don't go with oscommerce... outdated and don't know why anyone would recommend them.

If you have a community social network site then have a look at Joomla with the Virtuemart add on

Storefront is a good investement if you need too much of your shopping cart service ... However, if you sit down and go through thousands of options you can consider simpler and probably less expensive solution is not the time.
