Suggested January 2024 Five Seo Tips For Product Pages On Ecommerce WebsitesAimed at capturing a greater share of higher converting ‘long tail’ traffic
It’s surprising how often ecommerce sites neglect this dimension of SEO.
People tend to be distracted by the high volume head and middle keyword terms and forget to pay attention to the crucial keywords pertaining to the long tail.
Many sites succeed in capturing a fair amount of long tail traffic without paying particular attention to it. Nevertheless, it’s still important to capture as much of long tail traffic as possible because long tail traffic converts better than head term traffic.Tip 1 – Duplicate product content
Serve products on a single URL whenever possible.
A single URL may not be achievable because products might occupy multiple categories, giving them alternative URL directory paths. For example;
A diesel denim shirt would be best served as
instead of sitting in alternative categories where duplication can occur, such as
In this scenario, it’s best to use canonical tags (that’s another post in itself).
A duplicate content problem may also occur if there are multiple variants of the same product; for instance, when a product comes in different sizes and/or colours. A couple of options to combat this problem are:
Pros– Easier to implement, lessens duplicate content riskCons – Products aren’t as optimal for variant specific search terms
Serve on unique URLs – a specific page per product variant allows you to optimise for each colour, or other product variant. This method still carries a duplicate content risk because products are still too similar despite some differences, such as colour and size.However, you can still avoid triggering duplicate content filters by producing a unique product description for each variation to more strongly differentiate each page.Pros– More optimal product pagesCons – Difficult to administer / come up with unique descriptionsTip 2 - Product naming conventions
Make sure SEO is ingrained in the build and considered by everyone who updates the website. It is particularly important to include the admin people who add new products to the database.
It is common practice for product names to be re-employed in titles, headings and other key SEO areas, so product names must be created with search users in mind.
For example, a dress colour may be described as ‘cobalt’, a description unlikely to reflect most of the search terms searchers use when trying to find a ‘blue dress’. Changing the dress colour to ‘cobalt blue’ is likely to support optimisation of all sorts of relevant long tail search terms.
Instil a set of characteristics that must form part of the product title; an example from ‘fashion’ might look like this;Tip 3 – Product schema
Mark-up your products correctly using the schema found here.
You can also include review schema and breadcrumb schema.Tip 4 – Product templates
Apply the following best practice elements to your product template:
Friendly optimised URL’s
Unique product descriptions
Optimised alt tags on imagesTip 5 - XML sitemaps
Ecommerce sites generally have a large number of products, and therefore URL’s, within the site. It is vital to get the products indexed to capture the long tail. So, for SEO it is strongly recommended ecommerce sites submit all product URLs using XML sitemaps.
You can split your sitemaps up into the different categories and then bring them all together using a sitemap index file.
Here are some useful links to help you create search engine friendly sitemaps.
Once you have created your sitemaps, upload them to your domain and submit using Google webmaster tools.

When Google updated their Search Quality Rater Guidelines in July this year, the concept of E-A-T (Expertise, Authority, Trust) gained spotlight once again.
The updated guidelines increased the focus on E-A-T, as well as the author of the content as an individual – not just the authority of the website/brand as an entity.
For ecommerce websites, achieving E-A-T is a balance of optimizing page formats and content design for conversion and achieving the necessary on-page signals that Google is looking for.
This is especially important seeing as ecommerce pages will likely fall under the category of YMYL (Your Money or Your Life) pages, meaning the information displayed on those pages will be expected to be of the highest accuracy, and trustworthiness.What the Guidelines Say
When it comes to E-A-T for product category and individual product pages, the concept differs to that of long-form content and blog articles.
For an ecommerce site, authoritative text on pages isn’t enough. All features and elements of the page contribute to the perceived user quality.
In April 2023, Moz published a Whiteboard Friday video that I think gives a great breakdown on the type of content you need to include on product pages. It also ties in with the idea of search intent – and optimizing pages to match search queries, not just those with the highest CPC average monthly search volumes.
This ties in with what Google outlines in their guidelines as to what they expect to see when looking for E-A-T on ecommerce websites.
For the quality raters, whose influence is only minor, to establish the E-A-T of your commerce pages, there are certain elements they need to be able to clearly identify to score expertise, authority, and trust.
Within the rater guidelines themselves, as an example of high-quality E-A-T for shopping pages, Google gives the example of the chúng tôi Deluxe Book Pack product page. This page demonstrates:
Very high level of E-A-T for the purpose of the page.
Very positive reputation (website).
A satisfying or comprehensive amount of high-quality main content (MC).
So how can this be achieved by all ecommerce site owners?What Demonstrates Expertise?
The examples provided within the guidelines suggest that what counts as expertise for a commerce page are:
The expertise and reputation of the product manufacturer.
The expertise and reputation of the brand in regard to the products being sold.
“recommendations by experts, news articles, and other credible information…”
This highlights the importance of traditional marketing, public relations, and outreach (not for links) and how they impact SEO efforts.
Simply put: real businesses do real marketing activities and make real noise both online and offline, and people talk about it.
Expertise is something granted by your peers and isn’t something that can always be credibly self-assigned.
In order to receive peer recommendations and have others talking about the brand and website online, you need to work on your reputation.
You can do this by:
Actively engaging with other members of the industry and contributing to content.
Taking newsworthy actions such as sponsorship deals and charity donations.
Even tactics more closely related to backlink generation, such as sending out products for review.
These are all activities genuine businesses engage in.
What’s the opportunity cost of not doing activities such as these?
You will have less of a reputation online and within your peers than those who have actively engaged in these promotions.
Reputation requires a lot of trust and editorial freedom.What Demonstrates Authority?
Because the store produces this backpack, they are experts on the product, making the page on their own website authoritative.
This implies that for content to be authoritative in Google’s eyes, the content must be coming from either the manufacturer or an industry expert.
On this basis, a smaller ecommerce site with limited reach could be considered to have authority if it claims to be the authority over its own products.
A good example of this would be within a small niche, where an ecommerce site caters for a specific and specialist line of products.
Likewise, a larger ecommerce site asking as a marketplace for a number of different manufacturers and products can be verified much more easily, and if they do have affiliations with those sellers.
This is especially important when dealing with high value, luxury products that are often the focus of misrepresentation online.
Rolex, for example, is a prestigious and sought-after brand but cannot be sold online.
This Rolex listing can be verified as genuine immediate because:
There is no option to purchase the item directly online, instead a number of CTAs to inquire about the product
There is a prominent “Rolex Official Retailer” badge in the top left, which links through to the Rolex site.
The page itself is hosted on chúng tôi but a part of the retailer’s main navigation.What Demonstrates Trust?
From experience, this is where conflicts between SEO and design come into play.
Essentially, any potential questions, concerns, or additional queries that a user may have regarding the product or service should be openly addressed – especially if competitors selling the same (or similar) openly address them.
At the risk of having long pages, information should be comprehensive and readily available.
As a best practice, ensure that product pages contain:
Information about delivery costs and durations.
Any other additional costs, taxes, or tariffs that could be incurred shipping to specific locations.
Return policies, product guarantees, and other similar information should be accessible.
Company contact information, live chat, customer support, and FAQs all should be easy to find.
Other and more obvious ways of earning trust include gaining reviews and having a secure website.
When it comes to reviews, a study conducted by the Association for Psychological Science found that users are swayed more by the number of reviews, rather than the overall review score itself.
A second study conducted by the Northwestern University’s Spiegel Research Center also found that users tend to trust overall review scores between 4.2 and 4.5 (out of five), as higher overall scores raised suspicion.

One area many agencies lack overall, especially in local SEO, is reporting.
Unlike enterprise and international businesses with C-level executives and shareholders, many local businesses only care about getting more foot traffic in their doors.
So by simplifying our approach and focusing on reporting only highly relevant data, agencies can better serve local businesses and build stronger relationships.
Here are seven tips to improve your local SEO reporting and serve your local clients.1. Simplify Reports
Simplifying your SEO reports is not just a tip that local SEO agencies should follow – but one that generally any agency should, too.
Our first impulse as marketers and communicators is to provide as detailed a report as possible. That’s even more true when marketers need to bury bad campaign results under a mountain of information.
However, our reports should tell a clear and concise story about how well our marketing campaigns perform.
Complicated reports with unnecessary data distract from campaign success and will make some eyes gloss over reading them.
Follow these tips to keep local SEO reports simple and easily digestible for clients:
Set clear goals: Outline the campaigns’ goals at the top of reports and cite the most relevant metrics in communicating your progress toward those goals.
Eliminate unnecessary metrics: For the SEO neophyte, metrics like total keyword volume, impressions, and backlinks matter very little if they aren’t driving foot traffic to the store.
Use a single reporting period: Regardless of how many tools you use, you should stick to tracking one reporting period (e.g., the past 30 days or two weeks) based on when reports are distributed.
Visualize data: Tools like Semrush provide pie charts and line charts for important keyword metrics that can help clients visualize campaign progress. Google Analytics also provides visuals for metrics, such as new or returning users.
Segment reports into different sections: Don’t just skip from user metrics directly into social media metrics without clearly separating reports into sections. For example, I like to organize my reports into chapters, such as “Traffic Overview,” “Local Keyword Overview,” “Social Media Overview,” etc.
Tell a story: Don’t just inundate clients with metric after metric. Instead, explain metrics in brief paragraphs on top of or below charts. I sometimes include a brief one-page SEO primer at the beginning of reports and audits to help people understand what value we’re adding.2. Choose The Right Metrics
Part of telling a story with data is selecting the correct data that’s relevant to that story.
Most local businesses only really care about two vital metrics:
However, this doesn’t mean you should disregard every important metric, but that you should choose metrics that are relevant to your story.
Even metrics like overall traffic don’t show you how qualified that traffic is or what channels that traffic originates from.
That’s why I like to include the following vital metrics from Google Analytics:
Top Landing Pages.
Location by city (Users, New Users, Sessions, Bounce Rate, etc.).
Top Traffic Channels by Sessions.
New vs. Returning Customers.
These metrics tell our clients which campaigns yield the most significant traffic flow and from which cities and sources.
You’ll also need a tool to report keyword data, such as Semrush or Ahrefs. Semrush even provides a neat tool to construct reports easily and build templates for future clients.3. Segment Keywords By Location
Getting into some more of the local aspects of SEO, we’ll need to ensure that our reports are adequately optimized to only report on local keyword data.
I used Semrush to create a new project and implement position tracking on my most strategic keywords in this example.
As you can see below, I set up position tracking for searches specifically in the Houston metropolitan area. I then can upload keywords I am tracking from Semrush or even Google Analytics to report on.
To filter the keywords I am tracking, I can also add tags that separate them into specific categories.
You can get as granular as you wish with your list by separating your keywords by question phrases, “near me” searches, or including a city-based keyword from your list.
Once you have position tracking and tags set up, you can easily export or add those keywords to a CSV or Semrush’s reporting tool.4. Segment Traffic By Device
Equally crucial for tracking local SEO campaigns is filtering data by device.
That’s why I like to include sections in my reports outlining traffic by device and even going as granular as by location and device.5. Track Local SERP Results
Another massive difference in how Google approaches local searches is using tools like the Local Search Pack and Google Business Profile.
For several local businesses, Google Business Profile listings can be a significantly higher source of conversions and foot traffic to a business than their actual website.
You’ll need to sign up for a connector to track Google Business Profile data using any conventional reporting tool.
However, many keyword tools like Semrush offer detailed keyword information about local search results, such as local pack results and featured snippets.
This information is highly relevant to businesses looking to rank in “near me” searches that generate a lot of traffic to their business.
Export this data to a CSV or upload it directly into Semrush’s reporting tool.6. Go Beyond Standard SEO Tools And Metrics
Going beyond the local pack, we can add several additional KPIs (key performance indicators) to our local SEO reports that are highly relevant to businesses.
For example, consider including the following metrics in your next local SEO report:
Unlinked brand mentions.
Backlinks (if relevant to your campaign).
Social media engagement.
You might need to purchase a social listening tool or upgrade your Semrush account to track social media mentions and engagement.
However, you can also do manual research to monitor changes in review ratings, unlinked brand mentions, or social media engagement on trending posts to add to your reports.7. Provide Actionable Information
Finally, we want to wrap up our reports by adding a section at the end summarizing campaign results and future actions based on the data you present.
This section will help you complete your story using the data provided and help clients understand what you presented to them.
I also find adding a final section for recommendations important because many campaigns can be hampered by low budgets or reluctant clients who don’t want to take all the necessary steps to change their site.
So if your campaign is bogged down because a local business won’t update its site or implement recommended changes, be sure to remind them nicely at the end of your report and explain the benefits of your recommendations.

Social media can connect you to friends and family, bring you the latest and most important news, and help you discover art, opinions, and places you would otherwise never have come across. But these platforms can also trigger negative emotions, make you dissociate from what’s happening around you, and act as a potentially dangerous time sink that distracts you from important tasks.
Your first instinct may be to go ahead and delete your accounts completely, but finding a balance when it comes to your online life will allow you to reap all of the benefits while laying off the toxicity.
Using some of these smart strategies will help you find that elusive sweet spot.Follow fewer people
Chances are your social media feeds are packed with old friends and colleagues you haven’t spoken to in years. Some of them you might never speak to again. These contacts can add up quickly over time since we’re generally better at following than we are at unfollowing. Add in all those other junk accounts—from brands to places you went to once upon a time—and your feeds can quickly become a mess.
[Related: It’s time to purge the worst people in your social media feeds]
The next time you load up your social media apps, take some time to unfollow the accounts and people you’re no longer interested in. This will make a big difference to how often you check social media—if you’re only following 50 people on Twitter, for example, you know that you’re not missing too much if you’re only checking your timeline once a day.Turn off notifications
You might be surprised at how effective notifications are at dragging you back into social media apps throughout the day. Fewer notifications can help you keep your attention on the things that matter and create a healthy habit of checking social media only when you’re ready.
Notifications aren’t too difficult to control these days, and there’s a lot of flexibility in terms of which alerts you see and how. From Android Settings choose Notifications and App settings; from iOS Settings choose Notifications; from Windows’ Settings choose System and Notifications, and from macOS’ System Preferences choose Notifications & Focus.
Browse through the options you have inside your apps, too. In the case of Facebook, for example, you can turn off email updates about what’s happening in your network of friends and relatives by visiting this page and logging inSet time limits
Setting time limits for social media apps on your devices isn’t a foolproof approach, as you can easily turn them off if the draw is too strong. Still, you might find these limitations are effective at reducing the amount of time you spend deep in your feeds.
App time limits are synchronized across iOS and macOS. You can find the Screen Time option in iOS Settings and macOS’ System Preferences, and from there you can choose App Limits to pick how long you want your device to allow you on each of your social media apps.
If you’re on Android, head to Settings, pick Digital Wellbeing and parental controls, and then choose Dashboard. Set a time limit by tapping the hourglass icon next to any app. For Windows, there’s a feature called Focus assist under System in Settings, which will help you set specific times when you can open social media apps.Change app settings
Several social media apps come with settings of their own to help you limit the amount of time you spend on them. Take a look into the options screens in your platform of choice, and see what’s available.
In the case of TikTok, tap your profile icon (bottom right), then the menu button (top right). There, choose Settings and privacy, Content & Activity, Digital Wellbeing, and Daily screen time. In Instagram, you can go to your profile (bottom right), tap the menu button (top right), then pick Your activity, Time Spent, and then either Set daily time limit or Set a reminder to take breaks (or both).
You can easily override or disable all of these settings whenever you want, so you’ll definitely need a bit of willpower as well. Still, you might find that they give you a useful extra nudge to back off your feeds when you need it most.Uninstall the apps
[Related: How to delete Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp—and take your data with you]
If you’ve never had to uninstall an app from your phone before, all it takes on Android is a long press on an app and a drag to the Uninstall button at the top of the screen. On iOS, long press on any app icon on the home screen and then choose Delete app to remove it.
Just about every social media app out there keeps your posts stored in the cloud, so everything will still be there if and when you reinstall the app. It’s a more drastic option, but you can consider it a last resort in case some combination of the tips above is not enough to help you cut down on your social media use.
The focus is on the product
Great products trigger word-of-mouth effect which is the most reliable and also the cheapest marketing channel. Therefore, keep in mind that the 4Ps of marketing are still alive and well.
What about SaaS pre-launch stage when you don’t have a product ready yet? I’m here to share our experience and best practices.
Make use of the market research
SaaS marketing starts long before the product gets launched. When you make first steps with your next big thing, it’s a good idea to begin with a detailed research. The first task is to identify the buyer persona. At Chanty we’ve created a number of surveys asking about communication challenges people experience, problems that team chats solve for them and so on. It helped us create an image of the target audience we are building our product for.
This kind of analysis helps make a decision when you shape your product and answer many questions:
Is there a free niche you can occupy?
Which product features should your product include to stay competitive?
What marketing channels can you rely on?
And the most important:
What’s your competitive edge?
You can also use marketing hooks that help spread the word. E.g. Slack claims to kill emails. This statement certainly stands out and attracts attention. Groove helpdesk software positions themselves as a “breath of fresh air”. At Chanty we’ve chosen to go with artificial intelligence – the 2023 trend that resonates with our tech savvy audience.
Test your marketing assets
Marketing and design have to go hand in hand to achieve results. What you think as an amazing piece of design or a line of text may be not perceived by your target audience in the same way. How do you know what your buyer persona actually likes?
The Next step is to compare the results and see if one of the versions of your marketing assets performs significantly better for your target audience.
Design a remarkable landing page
A landing page is all you have when the product isn’t ready yet. While there’s no problem with having a simple one-page website, in the beginning, it must be nevertheless crystal clear and user-friendly as you will never have a second chance to make the first impression. Responsive design that a user can easily open from a mobile device goes without saying.
Remember, Nike doesn’t sell sports shoes, they sell motivation for courage and success. The content of your product landing page should reflect the values you are delivering with your software, so don’t start off with listing your “unique” features. Big brands sell value, not functionality.
Content marketing is still king
There’s no excuse for not creating content today when digital marketing has turned into a non-stop content creating machine. Starting a blog is a must, moreover, you have to spend more time promoting your content than actually writing it. Keep conversions in mind when working on your articles. It means looking for the right high-intent keywords to attract visitors looking for your product or answers to the questions that your product solves.
The quality of the blog posts goes without saying. You have literally no chance to be noticed in the ocean of valuable in-depth content if you don’t pay attention to the quality. Therefore, I always recommend not to hire freelancers to write content for you. Content becomes useful and valuable only when you put your heart and soul into it. My experience tells me it’s usually hard to expect this from a freelancer.
We’ve started looking for beta testers long before our actual beta test. On the one hand, more time gives you an opportunity to attract more emails. On the other hand, when you contact those you’ve found half a year ago once your app finally enters its beta, they barely remember you or your app. Therefore, I’d recommend to strike a balance and spend one or two months actively promoting your product to get the precious emails of early adopters. Here are some helpful sources that got us the majority of the emails:
We’ve tried to contact people directly on LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook. As a result, LinkedIn brought us the largest number of early adopters.
Beta platforms (Beta List, Beta Bound, Beta Family, etc)
I should highlight that Beta List was the most effective bringing us twice as many emails compared to other beta platforms altogether.
App review content
It’s hard to overestimate the role of content marketing and SEO when it comes to SaaS promotion. We’ve developed a number of articles reviewing our main competitors that continue to bring us traffic and conversions.
No matter where your marketing activities take you, always keep your product a priority. The overall success of your SaaS depends on whether or not your customers will enjoy using it. If they do, you will be rewarded that viral effect you’ve been craving for. At the pre-launch stage, when there’s no product ready, design your website to get the most of it and not to spoil the first impression.
If you’re a product designer looking for a powerful tool to assist with your design process, ChatGPT can be a valuable asset. ChatGPT has the ability to generate human-like responses to a wide range of product design inquiries, from generating new design ideas to providing feedback on existing designs.
With its vast database of language patterns and deep learning algorithms, ChatGPT can analyze large amounts of data and provide insights that can help you refine your design approach and make informed decisions about your product development strategy.
Additionally, ChatGPT can help you conduct market research by analyzing customer feedback and identifying new trends and opportunities.
