Frequently asked SEO questions

  1. Can I have FTP details for xxx.com?
    Stores cannot be accessed through FTP. You can edit the Theme files through the Toolbox in the "Design & assets -> Theme editor" section, or they can be edited using Webdav. Information about Webdav can be found here -> Using WebDAV to edit your theme

  2. What is my login?
    You'll need to contact the store owner and have them create a "Staff Login" for you using your email address.  This is done in the "Accounts -> Staff logins" section of the Toolbox.  You will definitely need to do this if you are located in a different country than the store owner, as you'll be locked out for security reasons.

    When the store owner creates a login for you, you'll be sent an email asking you to click a link that will allow you to create your own password to log in to the store.  Once you've done this, you can edit whatever you need to in order to make changes to the store.


  3. How can I edit the meta tags on a page?
    Spiffy Stores is an intelligent CMS that creates meta tags on product and collection pages automatically based on "tags" that a store owner adds to products.  You can also edit the title and description tags by editing them on any page, collection, product, or blog article. Simply click the Edit Search Engine Data link when editing.

    To alter this functionality, you need to override this behaviour.  It's a simple process that allows you to edit the meta tags by editing only one file, rather than individually having to edit each and every page like you would in a static site.

    A step by step tutorial for setting this up is located here -> Creating custom meta tags


  4. How do I edit the sitemap.xml file?
    The sitemap file is automatically generated by the server based on the pages, products and collections that are set as "published".  It's created every time it is accessed so is generated in realtime.  For this reason it cannot be edited.
