SEO, AdWords, affiliates, advertising, and promotions
Recently, I put together a guide on SEO for Shopify site owners that want to improve their sales from organic traffic. This guide should be helpful for both beginners and advanced users. I'm a Senior SEO Manager that works with a good number of Shopify eCommerce sites so I'm familiar with the platform.
Here are some key things to consider if you're looking to improve the SEO of your Shopify site:
Hope this if helpful for you guys! You can read the entire article here for more things I wasn't able to cover in this post: https://moz.com/blog/shopify-seo
Good piece Chris. Well done.
One thing I would add: SEO is such a huge topic, and it can take so long to get it working, that it's a good idea to make it an ongoing project rather than a 1-day hackathon 🙂
It'd be good to make sure they have everything listed, then prioritized, so they can create an organized, concerted effort to constantly improve SEO.
Last, I created a video app, and while looking up stats recently, I was surprised to find it can help quite a bit with SEO. Because Google really likes video content right now, it tends to increase organic traffic by 157%, and a website is 53x more likely to reach the front page of Google results if it includes a video!
Thanks for the information and resources you provided. There's no doubt about the importance of ranking higher than your competitors on Google, it's a must for every online business. if you don't have a strong SEO strategy, you'll lose your brand impression, traffic, and sales. We wrote an article about e-commerce SEO too, give it a read and you won't regret.
If there is anything else I can help you with, please let me know, I'm happy to help!
