benefits of a shopify seo campaign

organic search customers are better qualified customers

Studies show that customers trust sites that they find via organic listing much more than sites that show up in paid ads. Organic search traffic is more likely to explore your website, read your content, and make a purchase. This is because customers know that sites at the top of Google’s organic rankings didn’t pay to take a short cut. They built their trust over the long term.

seo improves site quality

At its heart, SEO is simply the act of building a search engine’s trust in your site. A lot of the marks you need to hit in order to do that, such as fast site speed and mobile responsiveness, are things you should be doing to your site anyway. A Shopify store with an ongoing SEO campaign will keep up better with the latest technology because it’s what Google expects.

an optimized site makes other marketing easier

When you optimize your Shopify site for SEO you improve its overall quality in Google’s eyes. This means that if you later decide you want to try PPC marketing, your site will have a better quality score allowing you to bid less for better positions. You’ll also have analytics on keywords that have worked in the past to make informed decisions about your bids.

seo results stick

PPC is great because it can be turned on like a tap, but it can also be turned off like a tap. The minute you stop paying for your ads your clicks will disappear as quickly as they came. Organic rankings take much longer to build, but once you’ve built them they stay ranked because you’ve put in the work to prove your site belongs on the first page.

shopify seo faqs

How important is SEO to my Shopify Plus store?
For the vast majority of online retailers, there isn’t an avenue of digital marketing that could be more important. Google searches are the way most customers find a site they’ve never purchased from before, and organic listings are perceived as more trustworthy than paid listings.
How does SEO increase traffic to my site?
An SEO campaign is a series of tasks performed to increase a search engine’s trust in a site for a specific set of search terms. As trust increases so does the site’s organic listing for those search terms. The higher a site’s listing in a search engine the more users of that search engine will find it.
What’s the first step in a new SEO campaign?
The first step in any new Shopify Plus SEO campaign is to choose a keyword list. The keywords you decide you want to rank for will become the backbone of all the other tasks performed by your SEO team.
Will SEO increase my traffic?
Given enough time, yes. Any site, even in the most competitive of industries, can build its authority with Google. As rankings build, so will organic traffic. Keep in mind, however, that this can take quite a while and can be subject to fluctuation as the industry or Google’s algorithm changes.
How much work does an SEO campaign involve?
Different campaigns and different clients put in differing amounts of work. You can be highly involved in your Shopify SEO campaign and put in work above and beyond what your agency is already doing, or you can let your agency handle SEO in order to focus on other areas of your business.
How long does it take to see results?
It depends on the campaign. A highly aggressive campaign will take more work but achieve results more quickly. A smaller campaign will have less output and take longer to bear fruit. Where you fall on this spectrum will depend highly on your budget, your current authority level, and your competition.
Can SEO keep my Shopify Plus store on the first page?
Enough SEO work can. The first page consists of 10 spots (or less) that everyone in your industry is competing for. You need to put in enough effort to outdo everyone competing for those 10 spots in order to keep your site ranking on page one.
Can negative SEO hurt my Shopify Plus store?
Yes. Negative SEO describes things that decrease Google’s trust in your site. This could be things on your site that simply need to be changed, or they could be malicious attacks. Part of an SEO campaign is making sure that these things are fixed quickly.
Will SEO help my business increase in revenue?
Most likely, yes. The amount of traffic an eCommerce site gets it highly correlated with the amount of sales it makes. That said, you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t always make it drink. SEO is only the first step of a sales funnel that is highly affected by the user experience on your website.

"I had the pleasure of working with Genius eCommerce® on two separate projects, and they did an incredible job both on SEO and PPC and were able to hit all of my goals sooner than I expected, which was a nice surprise. Me personally I’ve always been a bit skeptical when it comes to SEO but Genius eCommerce® actually helped me to understand how it all works. Hats off to them."

"Really enjoy working with the Genius eCommerce® team on our SEO campaign. Their process is really transparent and I always knew what was going on without having to constantly chase people. They are extremely knowledgeable about what search engines want and after only a month and a half I jumped in rankings for several keywords I was targeting. They even helped me with blogging which I never really had time for before. I’m constantly getting little updates from them, communication is constant and very direct. Very happy with the results so far."
