burcot sounds like a big change. From the read it sounds like you are going to be changing all the urls in the cart pages. Have u thought what this will do, and if you have do you have a plan on 301's from the old urls to the new ones.
I don't think they way the cart is set up is such an issue you are changing up the product page urls and there can be a possible solution.
Question on the products are they seperated by maker like example.com/cart/maker1.htm
example.com/cart/maker2.htm and so on, and then do you have the products listed below each?
I feel 1 and 3 should have been done when you began the conversion from information to ecommerce. I can see why Google is finding it really impossible to classify your site correctly. It is number 2 I have concerns about.
On 1 i wouldn't lose the pages just push them down in the order. I find it sometimes unleated information to a specific product does convert. Not as well but here is my thought. I do a search for x and find your page on the subject, sometimes I am willing to look around sometimes not, so why would I just throw away a possible sale. I get customers all the time that came into my BMB store. They came in for x product and maker I don't carry it, but I do have this that is about the same sometimes I got a sale sometimes I didn't. So why would I just tell a possible customer to go away just because what they came into my store/site for a product I don't carry.
