Showing up higher in Google’s organic search results can seem unobtainable to many retailers. When seeking help, they are often met with a dizzying array of Search Engine Optimization (SEO) terms, HTML code and language that’s completely unrelated to their field of expertise – selling goods to consumers. I have to admit, I’ve seen first-hand the impact a “good” SEO company can have on a retailer’s business. However, if you are unable to find, or don’t have the budget for reputable SEO firm, know that there are things you can do on your own to improve your search engine ranking.
Peg Corwin's insight:
Good insights for retailers, such as to give brands more visibility than categories in store hierarchy, create brand specific pages and encourage brands to link to it. Also write blog content about brands, products, trends, philosophy.
