Like most first time users, I installed oscommerce to the default directory of /catalog/.
I placed a simple redirect in the primary root to direct viewers to the /catalog/ directly.
That's where my trouble began.
Problems I encountered were:
#1 - even with a 0 for refresh content time, this seems to show the viewer a blank page for a moment. Not what I wanted for a storefront start!
#2 - I noted search engine spiders and my rating were not up to par and discovered through some research that redirects are not the way to go
for spidering to be effective.
See the simple text file for solution!
