    When writing the description of your product, it’s easy to get lazy and copy and paste product descriptions word for word by your product supplier. Avoid this and you will avoid having search engines disregard your product page as duplicate content. A little extra time goes a long way to helping your SEO efforts.

    What I find the most annoying is the URLs of these websites. Can you please give few tips on how to optimize the URLs of the dynamic websites?

    I have such a hard time optimizing the individual pages of my ecommerce site. Even though it only consists of 20 pages, I run out of steam on the pages that I don;t think are as important. Maybe that’s my problem – I don’t give equal importance to all my pages ???

    This post made me think hard about the two ecommerce sites that I am currently working on. My practical experience is that my site with relatively weak non-unique content and many inbound links is ranking far higher than my other site with unique content and fewer links. Seems to me that it is the link juice that really matters to the search engines whatever they say about the panda updates.

    Great tips Lynn. In my experience coming up with quality content on e-commerce sites is a challenge … one that I’ve worked on for a few years. I’ve developed some ways to create outstanding and informative content for e-commerce and/or review sites. The following are a few additional tips:

    1. Write buying guides. I like multi-page buying guides extensively covering every aspect of a particular product.

    2. Publish comparison charts. These are easy to create if you’ve already covered a product line.

    3. On any product page, add a Pros and Cons section. This is easy to do, builds credibility, and adds unique content to the page that isn’t set out on the merchants’ sites. A similar technique is a 5 Reasons to buy this product section.

    4. Create a video review and then have it transcribed and publish the transcription on the same page.

    I always put myself in the consumers’ shoes and think of the types of information and questions I would have. In fact, when I research my own purchases, I pay attention to the questions I have as a consumer, and note them as ways to improve my niche sites.

    Nice tips, however something that I feel you’ve overlooked is to ensure you are including each item’s title within heading tags (e.g. ). Google really loves these tags and pays particular attention to the works sitting between them.

    These are very great tips. We always try to alter the product descriptions to make us a little more unique, but it is always tough to do. The biggest thing is to make sure that you know your products!

    Hi Lynn,

    Thanks for the great information. Do you have any ideas on how to get links to an ecoomerce (gift basket) site? I”m having a tough time with that. Trying to find blogs to guest blog on about gifts is not easy! And most the ones I find to leave comments on are “no follow.”

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.:-)

    I would add that patience is key. Lots of people will follow your optimization steps and then expect instant results, when in reality it can take weeks, or even months, for the traffic to really start rolling in. So, if things don’t pick up straight away, please keep at it!

    Thanks for the tips Lynn. Do you find that CMS / ecommerce solutions such as Joomla actually create more problems for SEO than help? Non customizable title tags seem crazy to me, especially if you have may pages with many types of products. Why does the home page title have to have a spot on every page?

    Good tips – thank you. I forgot about the internal linking of pages – thanks for the reminder.

    I would also add to optimize the alt tags on the product images with your keywords. Gotta do all you can!
