It’s no secret that SEO (search engine optimization) can help your eCommerce website grow organically. The problem is that most people don’t know how to do it or have the time or resources to implement all of these tips properly, especially if they’re just starting out with their first eCommerce site. That’s why we’ve put together this list of easy-to-implement SEO tips for beginners:
Create a page map and keyword audit.
Create a page map and keyword audit.
A page map is a list of all the pages on your site, organized by topic or category. It will help you determine which pages are most relevant to visitors, and where they might be spending time if they don’t find what they’re looking for on one particular page. For example:
Optimize product pages with high-quality, keyword-rich content.
When it comes to optimizing product pages, you have a few options. You can use the title tag, description and image tags, or even just one or two of them.
If you’re going with a single tag strategy, it’s likely that all three will be used in some way on your website. If you have multiple pages within your store (for example: home page versus product detail pages), then each page should be optimized to ensure that they are getting the most exposure possible.
The best way to optimize these pages is by creating high-quality content around your products which promotes keyword density—making sure that every word on each page has at least two keywords associated with it so Google can understand what people are searching for when they visit those pages.”
Create original, high quality, and optimized content.
The first step to growing your eCommerce business organically is to create original, high quality, and optimized content. It’s important to use the right keywords in your title and description, but it’s also important to make sure that the content you post on social media is original and not copied from other sites.
You should include both images and videos in order to enhance user experience while they’re browsing through your website. For example, if someone visits a product page on their smartphone or tablet screen then they’ll see an image of what they’re purchasing along with some text describing details about the product itself (such as size or color). If there aren’t any images available then users won’t feel as if they’re getting value out of their visit since there won’t be much visual information provided compared with websites where images are present throughout every single page load!
As well as including relevant keywords within titles & descriptions (e.,g., “Buy now”), ensure that those same words appear multiple times within body paragraphs too; otherwise Google will penalize you for having too many exact matches within one sentence alone.”
Increase site speed.
Create a sitemap.
A sitemap is a list of all the pages on your site, so that you can keep track of where every piece of content lives on your site. This will help you build out new content and make sure it’s easy for readers to find.
When creating one, think about what would be most useful for customers searching:
Establish strong internal linking.
Use visual content to enhance the user experience.
Visual content is more engaging and easier to digest. It’s more likely to be shared online, which can help you stand out from the competition. Visual content also has been shown to improve search engine rankings, so if you have a lot of visual products or services on your website, it will be easier for Google and other search engines like Bing (Microsoft) or Yahoo!/Bing Ads/Bing Maps to find you in their results pages when someone searches using keywords associated with those products or services.
Build relevant backlinks to your eCommerce website to boost authority.
Link building is a long-term strategy, but it’s one that pays dividends over time in terms of organic traffic.
You need to be careful not to just link out blindly, as many people will do. If you want your site to rank well and get more organic traffic, there are many factors involved in the process of link building: relevance, authority and reputation being key ones.
Monitor your rankings, traffic and conversion rates.
