Our Approach To Ecommerce SEO
Creating new organic traffic for an e-commerce store requires a very different approach than it would for a local business or blog.
We start by making sure your website gets a proper "tune-up" for all things technical including page speed, meta data optimization redirects, URL structure analysis, internal link building, and much more.
We create content designed to target keywords with a high purchase intent and ones that align with your target audience's interests, provide them with valuable information or viewpoints, or teach them something new.
We identify a number of high-quality websites, blogs, magazines, shopping sites, and more that are hyper-relevant to your niche or industry as targets for authority-building link building and manual outreach.
The Four Steps To Ecommerce SEO Success

We take a number of factors into consideration when designing an ecommerce SEO campaign including ideal audience personas, transactional keyword opportunities, and the types of informational content your ideal audience engages with. We also consider how to re-engage these users using methods like email marketing and retargeting.

Ecommerce Technical SEO
Once we’ve optimized all of your category pages, product pages, and other landing pages, cleaned up your content, and established a general strategy, the next step is implementing technical SEO updates.
Technical SEO is ultimately everything that happens “under the hood”, or within the code and the server. Most of the changes we’ll make in this phase will be undetectable to humans, but will make a world of difference to search engine spiders.
When approaching technical SEO, we look at a whole lot more than meta data. We analyze a wide range of signals including your schema data, breadcrumbs, internal linking, orphan pages, response times and codes, orphan pages, image optimization, markup optimization and so much more. Ultimately, we’re looking to achieve a few things:
- We want to make it easier for search engine spiders to find and index your most valuable pages
- We want to make it easier for search engine spiders to understand and index your information and products
- We want to make your products and content faster and more accessible to your users
- We want to make your website faster, more usable, and more accessible for users, which makes search engines happy
