I’ve never really posted in here but I can’t seem to find an answer to this or anyone else discussing it on the web for that matter.
When I check out the sales on the main page, random parts of the prices are blanked out with dashes, so something that was 149.99 now appears as 14-.–. Even the “MSRP” prices are blanked out.
The only thing I can think of is that this was implemented to keep web crawlers from tabulating the prices on your site.
Can I get a better explanation why the prices are being covered up until you actually land on the product page itself? It’s giving my jimmies a mild rustle and I’d like to know the reasoning for it. Otherwise I’ll assume it’s a clickbaity ploy to get more people to click on more product pages.
