Thanks for the replies so far - keep 'em coming if you have more.
I don't want to let it go - BUT - if I'm not making the money I need to - it's so frustrating.
I have over 2000 coupons and stores -- tons of stuff - yet google is not caching us well - only about 38,000 pages out of much more.
I'm trying to do more SEO - but you know....
Then the whole CJ thing with new links - means more money outlay to create new module to handle the java.
I'm constantly adding coupons and datafeeds. I'm pooped updating.
Anyone know if I'm doing something wrong? I have about 200 datafeeds on site...maybe a little less - not quite sure. Anyway, I'm uploading them all manually -- meaning I have my site working in such a way that I upload the csv, pick the fields necessary to that feed, and my site processes.
Is that how you guys do it too?
I hear that now google is just gonna trash those of us who do this...because of the duplicate content - so they don't like malls.
I see of a bunch of other sites - happycoupons, I think is one - that don't have a lot of content rich stuff and yet they, I've heard through various contacts
in this business, that they do great.
How do you deal with merchants that want to drop you because you're not getting them the sales they want? I mean, you don't just build a mall and start sending whammo traffic right off the bat - it's hard enough in the real world, let alone on the internet!
ANY more suggestions? They are very appreciated. I do have one or two niche sites -- but not sure how to work them into the mall since they are very, VERY small....
