Problem: Basically, when you go to a certain site, and begin to browse on products, the first thing it does is display a page which asks for your zip code, so that it can display available products in your area. So, I don't think the SE's can handle this very well.

Reason: Other big websites decide to show the product first, but we feel this can dissapoint the shopper if they find something they like, but cant order it.

The BIG Question: Is there a safe, and easy way to deliver the content to the SE's?


1. I have thought about submitting a Googlemap, and Yahoo sitemap, but this seems to be a lot of ongoing work; if it will work at all.

2. I have also thought about IP delivery mechanisms, but this gets complex rather quickly since it is based on zip codes, and is not always accurate, nor going to be up to date.

3. Do whatever sites like WebmasterWorld do (whatever that may be...)

Welcome to WebmasterWorld :)

The safest way to do it would be to give all non-browser user agents full access to all products.
