Hi Alvino5738,

Welcome to the Community!

Thanks for the post. Every site has both a site name and a domain name. The domain name is created to mask the site name as it makes it easier to remember. However, search engine will usually index both, but only display one (domain if possible).

There are several things on your website that will help search engines pull up your domain name.

1. Canonical tags - you will see on each page you have a canonical tag setup within the advanced settings. A canonical tag helps determine page navigation and the prefered one for results. Please take a look at Google's response for more information.

2. Sitemap - A sitemap has been created to help search engine spiders index your pages and again reference the correct pages. You can see your sitemap at: http://www.abcsafesforsale.com/sitema...

In no way does the store link effect your SEO as search engines know the proper indexing.

Hope that helps!
