Search engine woes continue to dog CafePress, but relief could come soon

CafePress Inc. reported a significant drop in second-quarter revenue but narrowed its loss from the same quarter a year ago, as issues related to search engine algorithm changes continue to cause problems for the internet retailer. The company reported a net loss for the first quarter of $1.4 million, or 8 cents per diluted share, compared with a loss of $3.2 million, or 19 cents a share, a year earlier. CafePress' revenue fell to $14.4 million, or 19 percent, from $17.9 million a year ago.
