SEO for digital trade is a lot more than the content of your website. Search engines are tuned to a better users’ experience. It’s not only about what you sell.

Common mistakes when creating online stores

It is normal to overlook important details when creating your online store, which can lead to lower rankings.

  • Heavy design and complex structure – Over 85% of searches are done through mobile devices, and having everything cluttered on the first page or a poorly-structured site can discourage customers.
  • Lack of sufficient or poorly organized information – Product features and descriptions should be easily readable and well-organized, considering the user experience through mobile devices.
  • Absence of options for selection and filtering – If you sell weights, for example, and each color or weight is treated as a separate product, it can confuse and waste customers’ time.
  • Poor quality images – Using low-quality or missing images can harm your rankings. Product names should match the images, and language consistency matters.
  • SEO plugins – There are various plugins available for every platform, but misconfigurations, lack of result checks, and excessive reliance on automation can be detrimental.
  • Lack of a clear goal – Not having a clear plan on “what to sell, to whom, and how” can create chaos in your online store.
  • Relying solely on paid ads – If you solely depend on paid ads, stopping them could result in a significant drop in orders (up to 60%).


This list of mistakes we have encountered is quite extensive. We are prepared and have addressed each of them. Trust us!

SEO analysis of your online store

The analysis of each online store begins with a client’s perspective, evaluating the following aspects:

  • Website convenience and speed
  • Product presentation –  photos, options, characteristics, and choices like colours, sizes, etc. 
  • Ordering process – evaluating the ease and efficiency of the ordering process.


Next, the website is crawled using various tools to conduct a comprehensive analysis, including:

  • Content errors
  • Duplicated and missing content
  • Keywords and ranking
  • Page indexing
  • Enriched results
  • Site structure
  • Quality and quantity of internal and external links


These analyses are conducted to identify both visible and hidden issues and to create a tailored SEO plan for improvement.

Competitors analysis

Market analysis is indeed a crucial component of a brand’s marketing strategy. By investigating the needs of clients, identifying market gaps, and analysing competitors, businesses can position themselves for success and build a strong reputation.

Analysing your direct and indirect competition is a crucial part of the equation, as it can help us understand how to position your products for maximum profitability. Additionally, to build a reputation that competes with well-established companies, we need a detailed understanding of your direct and indirect competitors.

Once your competitors are identified, we can assess their strengths and weaknesses, opportunities, and threats by evaluating the following:


  • What is your competitor known for?
  • Why are customers attracted to the competitor?
  • What compels the customer to choose their brand over others?


  • What are the common complaints from customers?
  • What products/services do customers demand but are not offered by the competitor?
  • What issues do customers encounter during the shopping process?


  • Has your competitor discontinued any product or service?
  • Are there any gaps that your competitor cannot fulfil?


  • What are the prices of products/services offered by your competitors?
  • Are they introducing new products or services?
  • Do they pose a threat to your business?


Analysing the competitor’s website, social media pages, keyword usage, and content can provide valuable insights into their online marketing strategies.

Technical optimisation of online store

Technical SEO is of utmost importance for every website, and it becomes even more critical for digital trade websites due to their larger size. With more pages and frequent changes, digital trade sites may face problems and have fewer backlinks pointing to their pages. In the highly competitive digital landscape, technical SEO problems can significantly impact a site’s ranking in SERPs. Regular technical SEO audits are essential to address these issues promptly.

To effectively optimise your website from a technical standpoint, we need to consider the following aspects:

  • Design and Architecture
  • Loading Speed.
  • Site XML Map
  • Robots.txt
  • Canonical URL Addresses
  • Hreflang Tags
  • Internal Linking
  • Redirects and Errors
  • Duplicated Content
  • Structured Data Markup
  • Missing Meta Titles and Descriptions
  • Noindex Tags


All these checks signal potential issues and indicate where to apply our technical SEO skills to your online store.

On-site SEO

After audit, analysis and technical SEO, we can start with the next optimisation:

Main pages, FAQ, 404 and reviews

Adding main pages for ‘Shipping and returns’, ‘Frequently asked questions’, and ‘General rules’.

You should add this information in the product page:

  • Delivery time
  • Possibility of return.
  • Return request.
  • Ability to connect via chat and phone.


Optimising a 404 page with additional details and links to products and promotional products.

Adding reviews for products and rating system.

Adding a section with FAQ.

Adding a section ‘Show more’ with information about programs, recipes, application, method of application or use and characteristics.

Add additional product information.

Structure and design of online store

The architecture of an online store is a crucial aspect of ensuring a seamless user experience and optimal performance. Regardless of the platform used, it’s essential to design  mobile optimisation. We add mega menu, inner menu and linked products.

Optimising category and product page

According to the semantic core, a text is added with at least 1000 words, including 3-5 long-tail keywords.

Google wants to understand what your page is about. The more content you have, the better Google can do its job. Moreover, providing in-depth content on a product page helps clients understand what they are going to buy, resulting in a better user experience.

It may seem challenging to write 1000 words for each page of your website. However, we prepare long, in-depth descriptions for the first 10-59 most important product and category pages.

We also include linked products such as ‘You may be interested in these products’, ‘More from the category’, and promoted products.

Title optimisation

Online stores frequently have repetitiveness of products, which leads to duplication and generating errors, why we optimise titles adding characteristics and including long keywords.

For example:

  • Set of rubber coated dumbbells
  • Set of dumbbells, detachable, metal
  • A set of dumbbells in a suitcase

Optimising meta tiles and meta descriptions

Here, we apply the power of persuasion and an attractive form. We use words like ‘Branded,’ ‘Quality,’ ‘Large selection of …,’ ‘Promotion of…’.

Meta titles and descriptions should be informative, inviting, and eye-catching.

Adding a scheme for enriched results

A convenient and optimal option to make your products stand out is by using schema markup for enriched results, which includes features, price, and rating.

Optimising checkout page

You can lose many clients if the checkout page is too complex or missing options. Issues such as a lack of fast delivery options, difficulties in choosing a delivery location, limited payment choices, and unclear invoice details can deter customers from completing their purchase. To prevent these problems, the checkout page should be lightweight, one-step, and offer a maximum number of options to ensure a smooth and convenient shopping experience for your customers.

Building inner links

You can reduce your site’s bounce rate by increasing internal links. This practice not only helps improve your search engine ranking but also encourages users to spend more time browsing your online store.



Tracking your sales

These changes don’t mean anything if you don’t track or optimise sales. Creating profiles in Google Analytics, Google Search Console, and Ahrefs can help you track your sales and keyword rankings.

Tracking the success of your website is easier when we know what KPIs to be careful about. Here are the best ways to see if SEO works:

  • Organic traffic: This is the visit count coming to your website from organic search engines, and it is the most obvious KPI for everyone who wants to track the effectiveness of SEO.
    • You can use Google Analytics to track your organic traffic.


  • Keyword ranking: If we’re creating content with optimisation for a specific keyword, measuring how you rank for that keyword is important.
    • You can use Google Search Console or a dedicated tool like SEMrush to track how your content is performing against certain keywords. These tools will also help us see if other keywords are added that may be relevant to your web store.


  • Organic CTR/Bounce Rate: For SEO optimisation to be truly successful, we’ll need to make sure that the traffic you’re capturing is a) staying on your website and b) taking an action you want them to take. CTR from SERPs can also provide us with valuable information about how effective meta-titles and descriptions are at attracting visitors.
    • We use Google Search Console and Analytics to measure how your visitors interact with your content.


  • Revenue: Observing how much of your organic traffic ends up turning into measurable revenue can help us determine exactly how much value ecommerce optimisation brings to our marketing efforts.


Attracting relevant traffic to your online store should lead to a natural increase in revenue. If this is not the case, this is a good indicator that we may need to review the customer journey in your online store.
