Digital products can help you earn passive income or even become a primary income stream. You do not have to worry about logistics such as stock and shipping, and in many cases, the cost to start your online digital store is everyone’s favorite price- free fifty free!

However, sometimes, that creative roadblock can still keep you from producing content for your digital store.

Did you know that you can boost SEO on your online shop listings to make them easier to find?
As a virtual store owner, you know the importance of crafting the perfect listing for each of your items. But, having a well written listing can also help to boost your SEO (search engine optimization) rankings and make your products rank higher in online searches.
There are several places throughout your product listing where the strategic use of keywords can positively impact your SEO including the text, pictures, and even the product name.
Keep reading below for tips on how to boost SEO on your online shop listings!
Among search engines, Google ranks as king. In fact, according to SEO Tribunal, the search engine giant receives over 63,000 searches per SECOND on any given day. That’s A LOT of searches!
Perhaps the most coveted spot on the Internet is page one of Google’s results. And for good reason. The company takes over 200 factors into account while delivering its search results to customers, providing them with the best fit for their query.
While it may be tempting to copy and paste content for similar listings in your online store, doing so can actually hinder your SEO. Instead, it is vital to write unique content for each listing. Using natural conversational language that is easy to read helps you to not only connect to your customer, but also improves your SEO presence online.
Your Direct Creatives dashboard gives you several places to add relevant text to boost the SEO on your online shop listings while uploading new products:
Adding social media optimized graphics directly to your product description can also help to boost your SEO. Strategic images can also help you to appear in the Google Images tab of the search engine, extending your reach to consumers who prefer to search visually.
A best practice is to include images in your description that can be used on other social media channels such as Pinterest and Facebook. Doing so allows customers and visitors to your store to share your product right from the listing! Pinterest recommends graphics with an aspect ratio of 2:3.
Check out our Pinterest graphic at the end of this blog post for an example of this practice.
Link building, using relevant inbound and outbound links to direct traffic to your listing can also help to boost your SEO placement.
Consider adding a direct link to your product or storefront when posting on platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest or on a Google optimized online directory like Sassy Direct. While still relatively new on several platforms, adding hashtags to your listing can provide your customers with a convenient way to find your products.
