Why is SEO important for Ecommerce?

Everybody has heard of the saying “If a tree falls in the forest but nobody is there to hear it, does it make a sound?” Cliche, but it provides an interesting analogy to digital marketing. If your ecommerce website is selling incredible products, but nobody can find it, will you be able to sell anything?

I don’t know any thing about trees, but I have an answer to the second question, and that is an unequivocal NO. Okay, sure, you can sell 5 units to your grandparents, but that’s not exactly a winning strategy. If you’ve set up an ecommerce store, you know exactly what I’m talking about. You’ve got a great product, but it doesn’t matter if nobody can find your site. This can be super frustrating, and you start to ask yourself tons of questions about SEO:

  • Are my URL’s the problem?
  • Am I doing something wrong on the technical side?
  • Do I need an entire content marketing campaign to start ranking?

There are a ton of concerns you have when your site isn’t ranking, but the good news is that we have the solution. Grab our ecommerce SEO checklist and shove your competitors down the search engine results page.
