SEO is more confusing than i thought

Hi Jared,

Working with SEO a lot since 2007 I see Shopify is a quite good platform optimized for SEO. In nowdays, it's more about the mixes between the content and technical part. I've done the research related to SEO and Shopify via Shopify SEO qucik overview and solution article.

Cheers,

Tony

Hey there, it's possible to rank high with Shopify SEO. Here’s a secret that SEO consultants don’t want you to know: it’s really not that hard to do, but it does require a bit of a time investment.

Here's what I've done in the past that's taken stores from a couple hundred views to thousands of views:

  • I use SEMrush’s Keyword Magic Tool because it’s ridiculously awesome (note: I’m not affiliated with SEMrush, I just love their software). The trick is to aim for search terms that have a Keyword Difficulty (KD) of 70% or below. I don’t have a scientific answer for this, but I’ve had a lot of success with targeting keywords at or under 70% KD.
  • I exported the data to Excel and created keyword groups with 3–5 keywords in each group
  • I then created blog posts for each topic where I aimed for 1% keyword usage
  • I also made sure to reach out to bloggers and I asked them if they wanted to work together in anyway. For the ones who wanted to work with me, I sent them a link to one of my posts and they give me a backlink for it.
  • I also cleaned up my technical SEO errors using SEMrush. That helped immensely!
  • I made good use of images and made sure they all had short descriptive alt tags

With this method, I was able to beat companies like Amazon, Macy's, L'Oreal and more. This was just a high level overview, but if you want to learn more, check out this post I wrote: Shopify SEO: How to Hack Organic Search Traffic. Everything I mention in this post is what I've done to drive organic SEO growth.

Hi, there are a few crucial elements for SEO, and a bunch of other stuff. The trick is to be clear on the most important search phrases that you want to be found for in free search, aka keywords. Once you have listed those phrases or keywords you use that to do the SEO like page copy and the headers and page title etc. Then there's all the stuff like SSLs, load speed, backlinks etc, all the tech stuff. Fortunately, Shopify is super easy for SEO.  I'm just writing a DIY SEO Made Simple paper for people who want their website to do better in search but don't have the budget to hire a SEO expert and are not expert themselves, I can show you the beta version if you'd like - email me rturner@turnermedia.co.nz  

All the best

Just contributing to this post because SEO ideas are always fun!

Me personally I like content marketing for eCommerce. It's something that I've seen under utilized with most clients.

For example, one of my stores we sell water bottles. We wrote a blog post about why to use reusable water bottles. After a few months (putting 0 marketing effort into it) it now generates steady organic search traffic every month.

Creative content in your niche works great on a few levels.

For technical SEO, all you need is this guide - https://moz.com/beginners-guide-to-seo

VERY EXPENSIVE. How about free advice instead of trying to sell stuff to people who want to fix SEO on their own?

Very sound advice - I try a lot of what is explained with very little results. I'm hoping time and pushing forward yeilds results.
