Here’s Our Process for Driving SEO Growth for eCommerce Sites
To properly optimize your site, we need to understand what your audience searches for online. By using various tools, we’re able to fully assess what search terms your customers use, analyze relevancy and predict future trending terms. Our keyword research process gives you a comprehensive snapshot of your website’s current organic search standing relative to the competition with an action plan on how to compete. We create a keyword strategy for optimizing product, category, sub-category, brand and other pages on your site.
Keyword Optimizations Includes
During the keyword research phase, we’ll analyze hundreds of keyword variations to understand how your customers search Google to find products that fill their needs. We analyze things like keyword search volume (to know how often users are searching for your potential products) and keyword difficulty to know how hard it might be to compete with the competition.
Once we have a solid grasp of the keywords your customers are using, we will map keywords to the specific pages on your site. This helps search engines know which page(s) need to rank for certain keyword phrases. This becomes the guiding document for optimizing the rest of the site in order to drive a considerable amount of organic search traffic to your website.
After we research and map your keyword strategy as detailed above, we implement our keyword strategy through various elements of your site like title, description and header tags to help search engines clearly know what the page is about. As simple as this might seem, we find that the majority of the sites we work with don’t take the time to really establish a clear keyword strategy and then target keywords on their site.
