Yahoo! Store Design Wizard UpdatedI've just learned that Yahoo! Store has updated the Design Wizard today. One feature that I'm extremely excited about is that Yahoo! Store is now supporting the "Sponsored Search Tag". Yahoo! Store owners can automatically set this feature up with ease and begin tracking their paid-search revenue via their Yahoo! Search Marketing PPC campaigns.

Yahoo! Store Design Wizard Updated

I've just learned that Yahoo! Store has updated the Design Wizard today, and that changes include:

  • 14 New Color Palette Options (now totaling 56)
  • 2 New Pre-Designed Templates (now totaling 12)
  • Dynamic Header-Background Sizing
  • Yahoo! Sponsored Search Tag Support

My Thoughts

I am a big fan of Yahoo! Store now supporting the "Sponsored Search Tag". Yahoo! Store owners can automatically set this feature up with ease and begin tracking their paid-search revenue via their Yahoo! Search Marketing PPC campaigns. Knowing which PPC keywords are driving online conversions and which aren't is valuable information. With this update, the Yahoo! Store team has made it easier for owners to get the information they need.

According to Yahoo! Store developer Paul Boisvert, this update is one of a few planned in upcoming months:

"We are heads down, and have been since the beginning of the year, working on some larger releases for the coming months. We look forward to completing wizards for the Open for Business process and then turning our attention to generating traffic to make merchants even more successful."

I, for one, look forward to the next update!

  1. Hi Karl,

    Thanks for spreading the word on the Design Wizard updates. I do have to post a small correction though. There are 28 color palettes in the Wizard now in 2 possible layouts (top or side) for a total of 56 styles of generic template. When we are up to 56+ color palettes we will need some kind of sort feature to browse by color or other variables. We will get there some day but bigger things to get to before we do that.

    Take care, Paul
