E-commerce SEO helps you to optimize your e-commerce store pages to improve search engine rankings and drive traffic. By improving your search engine presence you can boot your sales.
I Love SEO contributor Gianluca Fiorelli has published a seven-part guide on ‘Optimizing Ecommerce for Google Images and Visual Search’.
Fiorelli says, “In this guide, I will present you why and how to optimize your images for obtaining the most from both the Google Images Search vertical and Images Box in Universal Search, Rich Results with images, other Google SERPs’ features and from the more and more pervasive presence of Google Lens in every Google Search environment for your Ecommerce websites.
Images and Visual Search is a topic I talk about and write about since when Google started experimenting with the Images Search tags almost 4 years ago, a time when the majority of the SEOs were dismissing them saying it was just Images SEO, hence something that did not need to be prioritized.
Dismissing Images and Visual Search as a secondary SEO task would be deeply myopic now as it was before.
The worldwide status of crisis and suspended activity for practically any kind of physical shop makes it even more urgent that Ecommerce owners and businesses focus all the attention and efforts on visual shopping.
This guide is a humble attempt to guide you and offer you ideas and ways to optimize your category and product pages for it”.

The coronavirus pandemic is getting worse. It has created a global havoc and businesses are undergoing a big recession.
Let’s try to find out how this pandemic is affecting the marketing agencies Orbit Media Studios’ Andy Crestodina analyzes this impact.
Crestodina says, “Let’s take the temperature. We start with a broad question about demand for marketing services. Most agencies report a negative impact. No surprise.
But marketing is a broad category, encompassing a huge range of services. The impact to demand for those services ranges widely.
The industry focus is a bigger correlation with impact (more below), which shows up clearly in the B2B or B2C question. Agencies who service clients in B2C industries are more impacted, for now at least”.

When you create a marketing video, your goal is to attract people who are interested in a particular keyword (a product name, for example). You want your video to rank for that keyword in the search engines so people will click to see your video.
For this approach to be effective, you need to choose a keyword that people are searching for; there’s no point in ranking for “underwater basket weaving” if no one is interested enough to search for it. A good way to check the search volume for a keyword is to use the keyword search volume toolviralReel in Google Webmaster Tools.
Once you have found the keywords that people are searching for, your challenge is to create a video that will rank for that keyword. There’s new software that will help get that done.

• Trending Videos: finds short trending video clips from YouTube for your niche or your keyword and curates them together into a single new video.

ViralReel has powerful video curation abilities that will build you the type of video you choose, and, according to the creators, your video will be attractive, slick and professional, which will help it to go viral.
