How to Optimize an eCommerce Site Without Content

A difficult question from Paddy Moogan in the UK: "Hi, what are your opinions on optimizing an Ecommerce website where the main pages or products may not necessarily be rich in content?" That's a tough question, right? Essentially, you're saying here's a place where you can buy products and there's not a lot of content or maybe the content is duplicated from a bunch of places. So, my short answer is, you know, put on your user hat.

 

 

 

An often issue I find with ecommerce websites is exactly what Matt says. The customers copy the descriptions exactly as how they are on their supplier or manufacturer brochure or website. Then they end up with many duplicates of the same information. Usually the manufacturer or supplier was the first to insert that information on the web. For that and many other reasons this new shop will never rank high for those items because it doesn't have any value for search engines. This can be fixed rewriting the content. Yes, it takes a lot of time to do dozens, hundreds and sometimes thousands of descriptions; but I didn't say it was easy, neither that would not take much time; and in case you don't have the time, maybe the money to get it done.

 

You can have the help of a thesaurus tool right there while you are rewriting. You can even add your own personal touch to make the description even better and unique. Those bots will start coming to your items faster than you think.

    More people ought to look at this and understand this side of
    your story. I can't believe you aren't more popular because you most certainly have the gift.

    With havin so much written content do you ever run into any
    issues of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My site has a lot of completely unique content I've either created
    myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up
    all over the web without my authorization. Do you know any ways to help reduce content from being ripped off?
    I'd certainly appreciate it.
