Using StoreMapper to Help Your Customers Find You Easily

If you have a physical store, you should definitely encourage your online visitors to drop by and check out your products. This is especially a helpful strategy to target those living nearby and those who prefer to actually see and touch the items.

It’s even more useful to have a good store locator on your website if you actually have several different branches. After all, there are still plenty of shoppers who like to visit brick and mortar boutiques instead of buying your stuff over the Internet. More…

SEO for Ecommerce: Optimizing Your Online Store for Search

SEO for Ecommerce

To understand search engine optimization, first you’ve got to understand search engines. Search engines’ primary directive is to provide answers to questions. To do so, search engines crawl and index and rank millions of web pages. The ranking is really just the order in which search engine algorithms expect those web pages to best answer the question posed by each search query, from most likely to answer the question to least likely.

When you think of keywords, the foundation of all things SEO, you’re really just thinking of search queries. These are words and phrases users type into Google and Bing with the intended purpose of finding an answer to something — like the address to a nearby restaurant, or where to find a really cool iPhone 5S cover, or who the 23rd President of the United States was (Benjamin Harrison).
