    Magento / eBay Integration - SEO Problems?


    So I'm running a brand online and we want to start making more sales through our website, so we're developing a Magento/eBay integration. I'd like to hear your thoughts on whether this is a good idea or not in terms of SEO.

    We don't want to be penalized by Google for duplicate content (product descriptions etc... of our current listings would be the same on our site and eBay store). We don't want to fall at the wayside of eBay.

    What are the direct threats of doing this? Are there any precautions we can take to fight back against it?

    Thanks in advance.

    I am sorry I have no experience in that. I moved to ecommerce forum - hopefully someone here knows the stuff!
    Everything will be ok in the end

    If it's not ok, it's not the end

    Sorry for the misplaced thread and I hope so too! (Also just noticed the typo in the title, great!).

    I guess you could add additional description on the items. Even though you integrate the codes on your website you can just take the products without their full description. I guess this type of crop will not get you into trouble. But also try and add yourself your own text to the products. This way you will avoid any problems.

    Good luck!

    Yes, I am agree with the point of DeXSmart. See, it is obvious that Google will penalize your site fro duplicate content as you said you have same content on Magento as well eBay site. The best solution for this to create the unique product description for each product.
