Optimize Your E-Commerce Site to Broaden Organic Search Presence

SEO for e-commerce websites demands cross-channel strategy, methodical execution, and above all, experience. Why? The size and scale of enterprise level e-commerce websites means even a small change can have sweeping ramifications for its functionality and search engine visibility. A tiny change to a single text file could wipe out millions in revenue in an afternoon. E-commerce platform quirks could render site content unreadable by search engines with a wrong button click. Who on your team, right now, has the experience to find the problem fast, even plan so that it never happens?

Why E-Commerce SEO is Hard

Most e-commerce platforms arrive with out-of-the-box “SEO features” that help site owners make sure the stores launch with a degree of search engine visibility. The trouble is, these features are often stuck in the time that the platform launched. They don’t receive updates and patches at the speed of Google algorithm updates—500 to 600 times per year! You need an agency partner that knows your platform’s capabilities and how to amplify them for success. We have in-depth experience working with:

E-Commerce is About People

Spoiler alert: Search engines don’t buy your products. Ranking #1 for every “money” keyword won’t guarantee your site revenue or even a single click in today’s crowded search results.
