Building an e-commerce SEO strategy for Amarillo retailers.
Steeple is an ecommerce SEO company with proven marketing strategies for merchants and retailers in the Texas Panhandle.
Starting an ecommerce business is harder than you think. It will take longer for your category pages to create online sales than you want. And it will cost more than you planned for. Because it takes more than a ecommerce website and Facebook page to be successful in online retailing.
Over the years we’ve positioned our Ecommerce SEO Services as an aid in helping digital retailers have a smooth and prosperous business journey. As a digital marketing agency we don’t pretend to have all the answers. Google currently has more than 200 ranking factors that determine who gets top SERP results. It’s a moving target. Just about the time we figure out how to do it, Google changes the algorithm and we all go back to square one. Well, usually not square one, but it does make us have to hit the blogs and forums and make adjustments to be successful again.
While the target may be moving, it means that now more than ever it's important to keep first things first. This is especially true as it relates to your eCommerce SEO.
Put the BIG Rocks in First
A Parody of Stephen Covey’s Allegory: The Big Rocks of Life
One day a business guide stood in front of a group of aspiring merchants wanting to teach them a lesson on e-Commerce SEO strategy. He pulled out a mason jar and set it on the countertop in front of him. Then he placed about a dozen rocks, one at a time, into the jar until it was full.
“Is this jar full?” the guide asked the students. Most said, “Yes.”
“Really?” he said. Then he reached under the counter for a bag of gravel and dumped some of them in the jar and shook it to work them into the spaces until the jar seemed full.
“Is this jar full?” the guide asked again. This time the merchants were wary and said, “Probably not.”
“You’re getting it,” he said. And he reached back under the counter and produced a bag of sand. He poured it over the rocks and gravel until all the space was filled.
“Is this jar full?” once more he asked. “No!” the students shouted. Then he grabbed a pitcher of water and poured until the jar of rocks, gravel and sand was filled to the brim.
The point of Stephen Covey’s story isn’t to say that you can always fit some more things in, e.g., if we can just chase down a few more quality links, we’ll be golden. But that “if you don’t put the big rocks in first, you’ll never get them in at all.”
What are the big rocks of Ecommerce SEO strategy?
If you’re an SEO expert, there’s always some new scheme being purported on the blogs to get Google to recognize you. From domain name registration to Wikipedia there’s always something new that you can do to get to page one. But there are some things that probably won’t change with our SEO team’s ecommerce SEO strategy. It still comes down to keyword research, content marketing, social media, product reviews, and link building. These are the BIG Rocks that have to get done first or you’ll be chasing after the next sure thing and never get them in at all.
