All data that you share on the pages of your web resource has to be unique. This deals with texts, images, videos, etc. The same rule is applied to the way you web resource is presented. The visual look of your website is no less important. The unique content of your category pages is worthy of your special attention as well.

  • Use keywords of your locale. For example, if you are from France and your website is build in French, then use French keywords in your site’s meta data.
  • If you plan to use Google Paid Campaigns in your online strategy, pay attention to the following:
    1. forbidden keywords should be avoided;
    2. exclude low converting countries while specifying the audience of your website, exclude the regions that do not speak the language of your site;
    3. if you want to target a wider audience, you can run 2 online campaigns at a time: 1 using English keywords, and the second one optimized with your Local keywords.
  • Write meta tags: keywords
  • Add links to your site’s main page and category pages from external web resources. For example, if you run a blog, create posts describing your shop, its products and services. In case you do not have one, you can connect to other popular resources in your field and ask them to post links to your site on their online projects.
  • Do not forget about the power of social media. Share links to the main page and categories of your site over there as well.
