New Indexing Policy, uShop Update and Bug Fixes

The update is available on all servers.

Today we would like to present our first fall update. We've introduced a new indexing policy for all newly created websites, released a uShop update that you are sure to like smile , and fixed a number of bugs.

Website's Indexing Status

From now on all uCoz websites have a new parameter - Indexing status that is displayed at the top of the Control Panel main page (/panel/?a=cp). The parameter shows whether indexing by search engines is allowed for the website or not (whether the website is in quarantine).

The indexing status can show one of the two options: "indexing is allowed (quarantine is removed)":

Or "indexing is prohibited (the website is in quarantine)":

The status "indexing is prohibited (the website is in quarantine)" is assigned by default to all new websites after registration. The websites created before the update retain their current status.

Quarantine Removal Policy

This is where the main changes have been applied. A website can become available for indexing either automatically (if a premium plan is purchased) or upon the website owner's request. If the website does not have a premium plan and the user wants the quarantine to be removed, a request should be submitted from the website's Control Panel:

There will be a pop-up window with the info on the quarantine policy:

After the request has been submitted, the website will be checked automatically according to a number criteria: the website's age, presence of a custom domain name, content, verified phone number etc. On the basis of these criteria the system decides whether the quarantine should be removed. We cannot provide a more detailed description of the algorithm.

Note! If the quarantine removal was denied, the next request can be submitted not earlier than in 7 days.

uShop Update

The first part of the update is a new option in the settings that allows to enable automatic loading of items when scrolling down the page. Just like the news feed on social media! The option can be found in Control Panel > E-shop > Module settings:

and in Control Panel > E-shop > Orders management > Order fields management:

There are also several new $CODES$ in the E-shop templates:

And finally, the E-shop module now has a 15-day free trial period. Try out the module and explore its feature before you proceed to building your online shop!

Bug Fixes

The following errors have been fixed in this update:

  • incorrect displaying of content in Site News and Publisher in design #1191 → fixed;
  • incorrect generating of the HTML code by the system variable $THREAD_AUTHOR$ in the Forum module → fixed;
  • incorrect values of the system variables $PAGE_ID$ and $URI_ID$ for the list of blocked users → fixed.

That's it for today! Follow the news!

VZ, could you clarify you comment, please? If you mean the new indexing policy, its goal is to prevent empty websites and doorway pages from being indexed. If your website has content and is actually created for people, then there is nothing to worry about. Quarantine removal is free, the only inconvenience comparing to the previous policy is that you will need to submit a manual request. But on the other hand, you now don't need to wait 30 days and can submit a request earlier, once you've added content.

What about the custom domain? Is it necessary to get the website indexed or just a factor?
