UPDATED UPDATE: February 20, 2018: UPDATED-CHANGE IN ONLINE STORE URLS

Blythe Klipple

UPDATED-CHANGE IN ONLINE STORE URLS


In an effort to improve our results in web search engines, such as Google, Stampin’ Up! will be changing how URLs appear in the online store. 

This change will affect how product names and item numbers appear, as well as how demonstrators create personalized links to the store. This change will take effect on Thursday, February 22. 

Please note: All previously created URLs will still work after this change is live. You do not need to make any changes to any existing URLs you’ve posted. 

As you can see in the examples below, the product details in the original URL style contain more text, whereas in the second example of new URL style, the product details contain less text, and have the actual product name. 

How demonstrators need to adjust links going forward is explained here:

Previously, a demonstrator would add the red text to a product page URL: https://www.stampinup.com/ECWeb/ProductDetails.aspx?productID=103954&dbwsdemoid=[demo id]

Now, demonstrators will add the red text as follows, to the simpler URL text: https://www.stampinup.com/ECWeb/product/103954/aqua-painters?dbwsdemoid=[demo id]

Note that the difference affecting demonstrators is changing the “&” symbol to the “?” symbol at the end of the URL. This applies to all markets. Please contact Demonstrator Support with any questions.





From BK - The above clarification is good.  But………if you happen to make a mistake with the url (I tried it today before being aware of this update), this is the image you might get:





I’d like your thoughts on this image, especially the text.  I know mine.  Gosh I’m feeling like an old grump who is getting left behind at the station.  :)

Instant Icons updated for new SU! link format

In reply to this post by Deborah Smart
The SUDSOL instant icons tool (http://sudsol.org/member/instant-icons/) which allows you to create blog entries with SU! product images & links to your SU! store has been updated for the new SU! link format.

You may need to clear any cached web data you have if you're still getting the old links (with an & instead of a ? before the dbwsdemoid).

If you have any problems, please contact us directly at slb@sudsol.org

Thanks,
Coleen & Patti
