I just created a website on Shopify a month ago, and it has a domain name https://livebyhobby.shop/
But I tried SEO with GoSEO - SEO Products Optimizer application, I use the free package, and I combine it with Google's keyword planner tool to SEO keywords. After all my website traffic is still 0.
Can someone give me a suggestion to improve traffic?

Hello @tanloc ,

Congrats on your new store! It takes a while for the changes to be crawled by search engine bots, especially if the traffic is low. Also there is only a little SEO apps can do. Ultimately, it all depends on the website content and visitor engagement. I would like to give you some suggestions on improving SEO and conversion rate:

 

1) Further improve technical SEO:

  • Provide meta descriptions for pages. They are the key element for your page to be visible on search engines. Make sure to include your targeted keywords in descriptions:

  • Create sitemap file to provide information about pages and links between them. So that search engine bots can crawl your website efficiently:

  • Create social profiles for your store and link them into the website. Social links are crucial part for improving SEO.
  • Your page speed is doing alright for now but there is room for improvement which affects SEO. You can refer to my another reply which applies to your store: Optimize page speed

Applying these will improve your SEO. Also for your website to be visible, you should start by running ads otherwise it will take a long while to rank your keywords and gather organic traffic. Before that, I believe you should optimize & design your store for conversion rates. After all, your ranking ultimately will depend on the content and visitor engagement.

 

2) Target auidence & Store design:

  • Define your target audience and build your store around it. You got some really cool products. However I would suggest you to start with either Home & Office, Sports & Fun or Pet products. "Offer everything and see what sells" approach isn't a valid method for new stores; at least not anymore. Even if people find a product of their like, they'll be searching from other sources because dropshipping is known by majority by now. Basically, you should consider re-branding yourself tailored towards a target auidence.
  • Make sure to include a high quality image on the banner because first impression is crucial. Also set a maximum height or make it full screen. Currently below the red line is off screen for desktop devices:

  • Add content to your website. Listing only products won't get your far in terms of SEO because Google loves content. Also It'll help you build trust and keep customers engaged. If you have defined your brand strategy, you can write blogs and highlight them on home page like:

  • You can add trust badges:

  • Or highlight some products that you think your auidence would like:

These are the main suggestions of mine to improve traffic. I hope they help and good luck! Feel free to reach out if you need any further assistance.
