Hello everyone, I'm new to Shopify, and I have a small issue I hope you can help me with.
I want to sell T-shirts with the "Dear person behind me" slogan and related content. I came to Shopify with zero experience in this field. I didn't know how to find suppliers for these products, so I started by experimenting and creating a homepage with content related to the product keywords, making it look like a blog. I hoped that over time, as the homepage could rank for the desired keywords, I would find product suppliers and transition the homepage into a product-selling format. However, the issue is that some time has passed, and when I check the keywords on my homepage, it still shows as "N/A." I don't know what to do to get my website to rank, even if it's just at position 99. But no, it's still showing as "N/A."
I'm not sure if there's some Shopify setting that's affecting this issue that I'm unaware of and might have overlooked foolishly. I hope you understand the problem I'm describing and can provide me with some suggestions to improve the situation. Thank you very much.
My website is: dearpersonbehindme.net
It will take times, a lot of times to make your key works in top of ranks.

Thank you for your feedback. I understand that achieving the top ranking may not be easy, but I am hoping for at least a ranking in the 9x or 10x. Currently, my ranking is still showing as "N/A," and I am concerned that there might be something within Shopify that I am unaware of that's affecting my ranking issue.
I have rechecked the content on my homepage. The keywords appear in the title, Heading H1 H2, meta description, and my domain matches the keywords. I will also add images and content for alt tags. Currently, I don't have any products to build a product page. Additionally, could you please take a look at my homepage and kindly point out if there are any areas that need improvement?
Well, the SEO efforts take some time to show their effect but have long-term impacts on the website, and continue to benefit the website in the long run.
There is high competition in the market; additionally, SEO has been there for a long time, so every e-commerce business carries out basic SEO processes to optimize their stores.
Thus, to sustain in the market and rank high on the keywords, you are required to:
Hope it helps!
@muiphan Remember that every other person wants to rank on google top page as well, so you have to do more / be better than them to rank.
Back links are the single most important factor, in my opinion (I worked as an SEO consultant for a few years and ran various experiments).
That assumes you have all the basics, the things you can control on your site. My favorite resource for people gettings started with SEO is https://moz.com/beginners-guide-to-seo.
To get more backlinks, look up "backlink strategies" in Google to get ideas (that guide above will give you ideas as well), or hire a professional SEO consultant to lead a program for you. When you're prospecting people to hire, ask for case studies and customer testimonials.
One of my favorite backlink techniques for ecommerce sites is to create an affiliate program. Then create an army of affiliates, all linking back to your site (because they're incentivized it will be much easier to get links), from blogs, youtube channels, etc. Check tip #2 in my 7 Shopify Automation Tips Guide: https://orderautomator.com/shopify-automation-tips#tip2.
SEO is just 1 part of your business, if you have the resources, I would try to hire for it, even just a 3 month project, with a good SEO consultant that will give you permanent results. If you're strapped for cash, you could try hiring an intern, someone that is aspiring to be a professional but needs experience. You might not get the best results but with basic knowledge they / you can provide a foundation level strategy that will help.
Blog posts help really well, but you have to be consistent (at least 2 articles a month I would do), and it will take time (6 - 9 months on average), and your content has to actually be good and useful (people land on the page, read the article, click your links, etc).
