There’s no denying the fact that the world of eCommerce has become more competitive than ever before. Getting your products noticed can be a challenge, especially when it comes to pushing your products onto the front page of search engines. If you are interested in generating organic traffic and showing up on more search results, here are some tips that will help you stand out when people search for items related to your products.

Keyword Search

You can invest in multiple resources to optimize your product’s appearance on search engines, but if you’re using the wrong keywords it won’t work. Let’s take a step back and focus on what a keyword search is. Keyword Search is a common practice used to optimize a product’s visibility on search engines. Look at this practice in this way: they are alternative words that will help your target audience find your product. Focus on these 3 points when it comes to selecting the right keywords for your products:

  • Choose words that closely relate to the item that you are selling
  • Use words that are commonly searched
  • Use words that are equivalent to a high conversion

Let’s try it out with an example:

This is an image of the product that you are selling. In order to select the best keywords that would best suit your product you should consider taking note of the following details:

  • The color of the chair: Red
  • Type of chair: Dining chair

Title Tag

  • Red Women’s Sweaters – Brand Name – Free Shipping
  • Black Women’s Sweaters – Brand Name – Free Shipping
  • White Women’s Sweaters – Brand Name – Free Shipping

The only difference between each title tag is their attributes (colour, dimensions, material, etc. ). This approach is commonly practiced by a lot of sellers. There is no denying that this approach will save time, however, it will hold you back from achieving top rankings.

  • Include at least two of your selected keywords in the description
  • Despite almost being identical, each product should have a unique description

In addition, high value keywords should be unique, straightforward and encourage your visitor to take action.

On-Page Content

  • Make use of a strong title with good keywords

  • Keep your text clean and avoid using fillers

Take time to plan out your item pages, and create unique content for each item.
