Not ranking on Google ?

20 0 2

Hi, my store is not showing up at all on Google search, not even the first page. 

The store has been published for a while now and still nothing. Is there anything I can do to speed this process up ? Thank you. 


This is an accepted solution.

Hi @ryan333

Ranking for a new store on Google can be super difficult, without a proper approach. 

The thing is, it's impossible to rank your product pages alone - even if they all have good on-page SEO. 

The standard approaches to speed up the rank climbing process for a new store go like this: 

01. Creat blog posts, a lot. 

Basically what you do is to research and find Informational and Navigational keywords - these are the keywords that related to your commercial keywords (or keywords your Product Pages are currently rank for). 

Use Informational and Navigational to create blog posts, and use Commercial Intent keywords for your Product pages, then you link your SEO-optimized blog posts to the relevant SEO-optimized product pages.

For example, you can create a series of blog posts of top X best house-cleaning products, then link these blog posts to relevant products. 

Blog posts can rank faster, and once the blog posts rank, your product page can enjoy the SEO juice from these blog posts and rank as well. 

02. Build backlink 

Imagine backlinks as approval stamps

You can hear people talk about that the more stamps you have, the more trusted you are to Search engines.

But it's not about the quantity, it's about the quality as well. An approval stamp from Elon Musk must have more credits to it than one from, let's say, a bus driver. 

Simply put, BackLink building is the practice of building one-way hyperlinks to a website with the goal of improving search engine visibility. Common link-building strategies include content marketing, building useful tools, email outreach, broken link building and public relations.
