Hey Alice! 

 

I'm an SEO Manager who works with a good number of Shopify sites. 

 

Here are some common SEO issues we find on Shopify:

  1. Internal links to non-canonical pages on product listing pages
  2. Lack of content to match keyword intent
  3. Slower Shopify stores due to excessive apps, requests and images

Hi,

 I’d like to recommend you use Word Clouds SEO app from the Shopify App Store.

It’s free with limited daily use, and allows you to easily check your page keyword density with a generated word cloud based on the content of your page - you can also compare your page against a competitor.

Hope you find it useful.

Hi @alicecooper2804 ,

I think my answer will help you. I found https://breakthecuriosity.com - where you can submit your products to promote for free. However, Breakthecuriosity only accepts products that they consider to be unique and interesting. This is how many stores use Breakthecuriosity to be able to bring in traffic and sales without money.
