Product Pages not displaying during high traffic?

I was easily able to click on product thumbs and get product pages on my shop early this morning. But it's now about 10:30am eastern US, and now the uncached product pages are bringing up my Site Maintenance message instead.

From this perspective it looks like cpshop is having trouble grabbing the info from cafepress, perhaps because of increased traffic at cp?

Is anyone else experiencing this? I know there was an issue a ways back with cp blocking cpshop in some way?

Any help here?

thanks,
Kristen

It's definitely inconsistent. After I posted, I am once again able to bring up product pages.

Just fyi.

*sigh*

Ooof. Thanks for the FYI! Glad your pages are back. I keep bracing my self for The Inevitable Day, especially with all the new stuff they're doing on CP recently.

I looked at some of mine and haven't had any shop go to maintenance message *knock on wood* but did noticed the prod pages being veeery slow to load in my CPshop.

Yes, it's sort of hit or miss for me, it seems - leaning to the 'hit' part right now. And yes, very slow to load.

I'm wondering if I should just go ahead and link to my premium shop instead, in anticipation of the holiday season - establishing new links NOW. I just don't necessarily see any way this is going to improve?  

TID - The Inevitable Day.

Yeah, I need to start figuring out if I can use the images or hooks or something to substitute the cafepress links into the pages for when it goes.

I'm so torn though. I know it's probably going to die at the most inopportune time, but I really want to make CPshop last as long as I can, it is just so much better for organizing and for SEO.

For a while I'd been thinking my "shop" sales have been getting proportionally lower over the years compared to MP, maybe I could just roll with washing my hands of CPshop. But then I had some unexpected downtime on my big shop (unrelated to CPshop problems) and with that sorta involuntary experiment in "MP only"... I get the feeling having shop/cpshop for SEO had actually been helping my MP sales too, indirectly or whatnot.

I've had this issue too back when I started using cpshop. I never got a site maintenance message, but my site was very slow to load if the page wasn't cached.

As an experiment, I checked other people's sites during the same time and they also were having reduced performance. It implied to me that CP was bandwidth limiting the cp shop stores.

Ultimately, I switched to some custom code and using the Cafepress API, and the performance problem went away.

Cafepress has been stealing shop sales and counting them as marketplace sales for years now.  Something to do with canonical links and duplicate site content in Google's eyes.  I won't be upset when cpshop breaks for good, it hasn't helped us out SEO-wise or shop sales in years.
