Why SEO for eCommerce is Important

SEO is one of the most impactful things that you can do for an eCommerce website. Your website is your business – your brick and mortar – and, if you don’t get it right you won’t make sales. 

Unfortunately, not all areas of digital marketing are guaranteed to have a great impact on eCommerce websites, but SEO is the one that is worth the investment. With a strong SEO strategy, you’ll see returns on this investment for years to come with improved brand awareness, an increase in traffic and an upsurge in sales. Not only that, but your improved brand visibility will go a long way in retaining customers past their first purchase. 

Even with minimal time and resources, there are a whole host of SEO factors that can be implemented throughout your site to help boost your rankings. In fact, we find that it’s particularly beneficial for smaller eCommerce businesses operating in high-competition niches – we know how hard it can be to go up against the big players! A truly great SEO strategy, however, will help your business to punch above its weight online and gain the recognition it deserves. Just have a little patience.

Our SEO Services for eCommerce Websites

There are various different SEO services that can be used to help boost a website, but not all are relevant to each and every industry. Below are the SEO services that we recommend for eCommerce websites.

Technical SEO

All SEO campaigns can benefit from technical SEO – it’s essential for improving the health and performance of your website. Implementation might look a little different for each and every business, but will commonly include:

  • Reviewing site security
  • Fixing indexing issues 
  • Reviewing and improving page speed
  • Reviewing and fixing duplicate content

On-Page SEO

Keyword implementation across eCommerce websites is crucial. You need to know what your customers are searching for and ensure that your relevant pages are set up to rank for those keywords. In most cases we will:

  • Optimise your homepage and top-level key pages for relevant keywords
  • Optimise or set up category pages 
  • Optimise product pages for keywords
  • Create additional content such as blogs to attract more traffic and encourage conversions

Mobile SEO

2021 data shows that  72.9%  of all eCommerce sales come through mobile devices. This is why mobile SEO is crucial for eCommerce websites. To improve mobile SEO on eCommerce sites, we typically:

  • Configure your site for mobile
  • Review and optimise website structures and navigation on mobile devices
  • Ensure page layouts translate to mobile
  • Review and optimise page speed and loading times on mobile

eCommerce SEO FAQs

What is SEO in eCommerce?

eCommerce SEO relates to SEO efforts in relation to an online store to help the site rank better. Typically, this would involve the creation or optimisation of product descriptions and category pages, conversion optimisation, optimising site structure and navigation, implementing schema markup and more.

What’s the Difference Between SEO and eCommerce SEO?

SEO is an umbrella term that encompasses all aspects of Search Engine Optimisation. eCommerce SEO simply focuses on the SEO factors that best suit eCommerce websites. This may include a number of factors from each aspect of SEO, including:

  • Technical SEO
  • Content SEO
  • Mobile SEO
  • Digital PR

Do eCommerce Sites Need SEO and PPC?

For eCommerce websites, your website is your brick and mortar. It’s the backbone of your businesses and you won’t make sales if you don’t get it right. PPC is beneficial for eCommerce sites and can drive results fairly quickly. However, performance can be limited by your budget and will stop performing once you stop investing in it. 

SEO is the foundation of good online visibility and performance. It can take a little time to start seeing results, but these are typically longer-term than with PPC.

It is essential for improving brand awareness, increasing traffic and driving sales. It can also go a long way in retaining customers past their first purchase.
