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.

    Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year
    old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to
    her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic
    but I had to tell someone!

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually
    something which I think I would never understand. It seems
    too complicated and extremely broad for me. I'm looking forward for your next post, I'll try to get the hang of it!

    Very good blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?
    I'm hoping to start my own blog soon but
    I'm a little lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free
    platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many
    choices out there that I'm completely confused .. Any tips?
    Bless you!
