Yes in recent months I have been on a few shared servers to upgrade the php for performance reasons and they were all set to default at 5.6.

You wouldn't give anyone but staff a shop manager account anyway as the role does have a lot of power, too much for what is required, if using staff that arnt trusted then a custom role is needed.

I have just recently embedded a map a couple of days ago on a client site, I couldn't use any plugins because of the API block you mention but going old school and creating the map on my maps and then using googles iframe code still worked. Don't know if they will block this soon but it works currently.

Yes you are right, when I first used it I could test all the ie browsers but went to use it yesterday and it wouldn't let me without buying a subscription.

Also to confirm is bringing up the same results as the virtual machine and it is free

Thanks Jetboy, so after a few hours looking into it, it looks like there is no way I can support these browsers on my platform and it is a choice of using AWS and cloudfront to speed up the website and losing what little there was left or the site running slower for the rest of them. This is a shame as I have had a few customers come to me with this issue. I hope it doesn't hurt the bottom line too much.

Okay so ended up doing a virtual windows 7 machine for peace of mind as the browser testing was throwing up weird structuring, and after further investigation on the clients that had issues, it looks like it is IE 7 is the culprit and I have larger problems than adding to cart right now, however, I think this new issue may have only been from last week. Ahhh the joys of web dev, down the rabbit hole I go. I will add my feedback on (as this is free) once I have fixed some issues :o

Thanks ergophobe I will look into those.

Grindone -  some of my customers are not able to add to cart on IE, now I don't know what version they are using (it was hard enough to find out what browser). I can't replicate the issue so I need to find a way to do this to make sure it is fixed as I only find out when someone calls to tell me and pay over the phone. I need to be able to support older browsers as I am dealing with large corporations and government/healthcare bodies that, as we know, can be working off old systems.

Have an issue with an unknown version of IE that I can't replicate, all of the free online ones are not showing the fault on any of the IE versions. Do you guys recommend a program or site you would recommend before I build a virtual machine to test?

I hate it, yes it is fast but I only used firefox for the extensions, browser display checking and different logins for websites, none of the useful extensions work anymore so it is pretty redundant, faster but useless for me. I will be using waterfox more than the new firefox.

Just to add, depending on the category he is in, there are so many sellers from china on there now, adding UK Seller to the title may help him get a higher ctr and conversion bump.

I haven't really bothered looking at optimising it for a long time as it isn't really worth it any more for that venture, my time is best spent elsewhere. However, this is what I did know that is probably still applicable.

It is a chicken and egg scenario unfortunately that screws new sellers/listings for ranking...

Conversion is a big ranking factor for best match, so creating listings that renew are key, then leaving them to build (cross-promoting listings helps but as they have now stripped javascript that may need to be done manually).

Also quality of image and then listing needs to be considered;
a) Image - design the main image so it stands out when shown on the list, thus enhancing the ctr on impressions. Also, three reasonably sized images is the sweet spot, they lower the quality score of the listing if there is just one image.
b) Quality of listing - to increase conversion once a user clicks through.

Obviously, keyword stuffing the title is still relevant (needs to be very carefully constructed) and make sure he adds all the extra data and barcode number UPC etc.
You get a bump with fast and free shipping.
Price seems to also win out, whether this is in the algo or due to higher conversions, I am not sure, but the cheaper products end up being listed higher.

Hope this helps and good luck, the traffic is nothing compared to what it used to be so it may not even be worth his time working on it too hard.

Ahhhhhh the good old days of keyword stuffing, cloaking and teaching clients what Google was.
