E-Commerce SEO – 100 to 2300 Monthly Visitors

search engine optimization for ecommerce

In this case study, we will show you how we improved an internet shop’s traffic by 2400 percent.

Ready to dive into it?


The ecommerce / online store sells products that are between $50.00 to $300 each. Initially, it got no organic visitors and primarily relied on paid traffic (PPC).

They began ecommerce SEO with us by buying a couple of our a-la-carte search engine optimization services. Still, they were not dedicated until they onboarded to our SNAP Managed SEO services.

This store had a colossal opportunity to grow!

SEO Audit

The very first thing we always do is an audit of the site. This is because we are searching for penalizations, which could keep them from ranking on search engines.

Upon review, we found that this website did not have anything holding them back; they didn’t have much content or backlinks.

Easy Win Analysis

We look to find keywords that our client is currently ranking for but are not quite at the top spots to kick off our keyword research.

All these are great targets since we could boost them up to get faster traffic.

We found 76 possible targetable keywords, with a vast majority at the bottom of page 1, with a cost per click (CPC) being around .60 and $2.50.

We worked together with the client to pick a few high-priority targets for fast boosts!

Keyword Research & Competitive Gap Analysis

The competitive gap analysis is made to assist us in finding keywords your competitors are ranking for which you are not.

This is an essential step as it can help create new keywords that you may easily target with articles.

E-commerce is somewhat different from other websites with the competitive gap analysis. You will often get a lot of product names, most of which you are not selling.

Working closely with our customers, we can choose keywords that target their goods and stock.

We discovered a few killer keywords where we can write long posts!

E-Commerce SEO Strategy and Execution

This is a reasonably common campaign where we build consistent links and content to the website.

For the first three months, we kept the same strategy:

  • 1X SNAP Diversity Link Building Medium — We assembled in-content links centred on easy wins, using varied anchor text.
  • 4X SNAP Blogger 1000 words — We concentrated on composing content targeting keywords with great volume linked to the niche solutions.

Results – The traffic begins advancing when we began:

Continuing On…

Now that we have these amazing, long-form blog articles ranking (AND they’re high-quality pieces of content people actually use, instead of only product webpages), we will be in a position to perform some surgical link building to push these articles up the SERPS even faster!
We have a lot of articles to work with, and – it is starting to show!
By following this ecommerce seo strategy consistently, you can see Google unlocking the flood gates!

The Takeaway

Ecommerce needs articles, and by composing long-form blog articles, you should begin rank for your keywords.
These web pages are easier to position, and also do additional interlinking to your product pages. So, as soon as you’ve got the content, it makes getting those valuable links a million times easier!

From not knowing a lot about ranking on Google, I eventually found Josh and his team. They were so patient with me and they taught me everything that was needed to boost my online marketing. I had shopped a lot of other online marketing companies and SNAP was easily the most responsive and knowledgeable. After a couple months my website went from being not visible to consistently ranking on the first and second page of Google depending on the keywords… Thankful I made the right choice, I will definitely stick with Josh and his team into the future.
