Out of Stock Smart Delete extension for Magento
Out of Stock Smart Delete extension for Magento store solves one of the important problems that marketers face with. It isn't a secret that the showing URLs of out of stock products in the store is reasonable for the saving of traffic from different search engines. If you disable an out of stock product, but a user follows the link to it, he'll see 404 page and you'll lose a potential client. It is better to continue showing such pages.
On the other hand, it isn't useful for the clients to surf on the website and see lots of products that they can't buy. If such pages don't bring traffic there is no need to keep them enabled.
That's why we've created a smart tool that solves this issue in an effective way.
Out of Stock Smart Delete extension features:
How Out of Stock Smart Delete extension works:
The module scans all products via cron. When a product has status "Out of stock" for the first time the extension starts to check a number of visits on the product page. If the number of the visits would be, for example, less than 2 per month, the module will place a redirect to a category page. If the number of the visits would be, for example, more than 2 per month, the extension won't place redirect and will start another circle of visits checking.
Out of Stock product with a redirect on the page will be removed from the database after the determined period of time.
Additional feature in Out of Stock Smart Delete extension
Configurable products in Magento have status "In stock" even if all simple products connected with it are out of stock. The module changes the status of a configurable product to "Out of stock" when all of its simple products are out of stock. Then the delete tool starts the process of checking visits on the product page.
