    SEO value?
    Hey, I just realized that when I use spider tools (to see what they see when they crawl my site) the actual display of products is not picked up?

    This means that Google/Yahoo don't see the products and thus you can't be ranked for them.

    Is this true? If so, is there a way around it?

    How are they displayed *on the page*. MySql is where the data is stored.

    What Loxly said..

    And on those pages where products are displayed.. .. do you have meta tags in place?

    How are they displayed? Javascript? PHP? iFrame?

    it's actually a mix of Javascript and PHP....I think the Java ruins it because I have another feed with PHP and it shows fine in spider view.

    Spiders don't read javascript, G is working on it but most of it is invisible to spiders. Php reads like html. Products don't bring rank by themselves.

    Keep this in mind. A spider never sees a web page. A spider only sees the code that you see when you do a View, Source.
    There's good, fast and cheap. Pick any two.
