Instructions for a successful online shop

Whoever looks for products on the Internet today, is showered with offers. It is therefore important for online shop operators to stand out from the masses. As well as a good product range, the most important way of achieving this is search engine optimisation, as well as excellent usability. The home page is the flagship for the shop, so make sure to optimise it with the most important search terms, and to place relevant keywords in the running text. The home page in effect replaces a traditional shop window, so any online shopper who lands on the page needs to immediately become aware of what the store is offering.

How the comfort factor leverages SEO

When I go into a shoe shop, as a rule I want to buy shoes. Frequently I am drawn in by the range of styles in the shop window and I will try on three to four pairs of shoes in order to buy a pair – or, less often, not to buy a pair. A good sales assistant will figure out what I’m looking for by seeing which shelf I’m browsing and will quickly bring me the right sizes from the cellar (or wherever else it is they disappear to). If I had had to rummage through a huge stockroom full of all the available styles and sizes, I would definitely have saved myself the expense of the last few pairs.
