5 Practical Guides To Boost Sales On Your eCommerce Site

Posted on in Articles · Digital Marketing

Since the aim of eCommerce websites is to earn profit in the long run, it is important to get maximum exposure and entice people to buy, especially when it comes to online presence.

For this, SEO seems to be the best option as it focuses on ranking a website higher on different search engines through a number of relevant keywords and phrases along with different techniques.

As the website ranks higher, the company will see a significant increase in their sales. Below are some helpful eCommerce marketing tips that will definitely yield the desired results.


#1: Descriptive, Original Title Tags

Title tags also play an important role in on-page optimization and sometimes create problems for eCommerce websites. Every page needs to have a separate, unique title tag- which is overlooked by most of the eCommerce websites. It is important to give different titles to every page so that nothing is detected as repetitive or duplicate.

Apart from being unique, title tags also have to be descriptive and matches what the customers are looking for. Take for instance Holdsworth Chocolates‘ online shop, instead of having product names such as “Holdsworth Gift Box” or “Chocolate Gift Box“. They gave a more specific title for their products like “Alcohol Free Chocolate Gift Box 240g“. The page will definitely become easier to find for customers who are looking for that particular product.


#2: Unique Product Description


#3: Permalinks

The permalink or URL structure of the product pages also needs attention as it has to be friendly for both search engines and people. Visitors perceive different thoughts after seeing the page URLs and enable search engines to rank them accordingly. Ideally, URLs should not have excess characters like the URL of iStock’s product page is:


#4: Avoid Investing In Temporary Foundations

It has been noticed that eCommerce websites were not able to work for a longer period of time. They received incredible response in the beginning and then, their sales started to fall gradually, ultimately requiring them to stop making deals. This problem is actually the signal of weak foundation.

Yes, PPC (Pay-Per-Click) is a good way to bring traffic on to the website but it is not as reliable as SEO because the technique is getting costly, causing the businesses to bear higher operating cost. So, it is recommended to use different SEO techniques to optimize the website and increase the sales.


#5: ECommerce Schema Markup

Schemas are HTML tags that are used to markup pages so that it can be recognized by major search engines. When the right schemas are applied, search engines like Google can rely on this markup to improve the display of search results and makes it easier for users to find what they’re looking for.

It is necessary for an eCommerce website owner to place relevant schema information so that it can match with what they have written in the product descriptions on WordPress and Woo-Commerce while, potential visitors will find relevancy on the page and keep on visiting it.

Some examples:

  • Limited Time Offer
  • Product Availability
  • Reviews & Ratings
  • Images & Videos
  • Brand
  • Color
  • Product SKU
  • Weight
  • Description
