How to Optimize an eCommerce Site Without Content

A difficult question from Paddy Moogan in the UK: "Hi, what are your opinions on optimizing an Ecommerce website where the main pages or products may not necessarily be rich in content?" That's a tough question, right? Essentially, you're saying here's a place where you can buy products and there's not a lot of content or maybe the content is duplicated from a bunch of places. So, my short answer is, you know, put on your user hat.

 

 

 

An often issue I find with ecommerce websites is exactly what Matt says. The customers copy the descriptions exactly as how they are on their supplier or manufacturer brochure or website. Then they end up with many duplicates of the same information. Usually the manufacturer or supplier was the first to insert that information on the web. For that and many other reasons this new shop will never rank high for those items because it doesn't have any value for search engines. This can be fixed rewriting the content. Yes, it takes a lot of time to do dozens, hundreds and sometimes thousands of descriptions; but I didn't say it was easy, neither that would not take much time; and in case you don't have the time, maybe the money to get it done.

 

You can have the help of a thesaurus tool right there while you are rewriting. You can even add your own personal touch to make the description even better and unique. Those bots will start coming to your items faster than you think.

    My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
    But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress on a variety of websites for about
    a year and am worried about switching to another platform.
    I have heard good things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Howdy! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog.

    Is it very difficult to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick.
    I'm thinking about setting up my own but I'm not sure where to begin. Do you have any ideas or suggestions?
    Thanks

    Heya! I understand this is kind of off-topic but I needed to ask.
    Does building a well-established blog such as yours take a large
    amount of work? I am brand new to writing a blog however I do write in my diary everyday.
    I'd like to start a blog so I can share my personal experience and thoughts online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or
    tips for brand new aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!
