There's a great post by Maile Ohye which is worth reading ans studying if you run an eCommerce site.

15 Useful SEO Tips For Ecommerce Sites
[maileohye.com]

Here are a couple of examples:
1. Perhaps think twice before requiring (or requesting) your potential buyers to do anything beyond making a purchase.

Because with every extra click you can lose buyers, streamline the purchase process.


2. For items that are temporarily out-of-stock, you can still likely return 200.

Unfortunately there’s no such thing as a “temporarily out-of-stock” HTTP status code. So what should you do with temporarily out-of-stock items? Like most SEO issues, the answer depends on your individual situation with consideration for the user experience


Read the whole thing, it's very helpful.

Speaking as an online shopper, that page makes a lot of sense. I hope more online merchants implement as much of that advice as possible.
