SEO is very much alive and kicking and if yours isn’t up to par, it will cost you money!<br><br>If you are new to ecommerce, you might be wondering what SEO is. Here, direct from that trusty free online encyclopedia, Wikipedia, is a definition of SEO:<br><br>“Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of affecting the visibility of a website or a web page in a search engine’s "natural" or un-paid ("organic") search results. In general, the earlier (or higher ranked on the search results page), and more frequently a site appears in the search results list, the more visitors it will receive from the search engine's users. SEO may target different kinds of search, including image search, local search, video search, academic search, news search and industry-specific vertical search engines.<br><br>As an internet marketing strategy, SEO considers how search engines work, what people search for, the actual search terms or keywords typed into search engines and which search engines are preferred by their targeted audience. Optimizing a website may involve editing its content, HTML and associated coding to both increase its relevance to specific keywords and to remove barriers to the indexing activities of search engines. Promoting a site to increase the number of backlinks, or inbound links, is another SEO tactic.”<br><br>Basically, using good SEO means that your dropship listings or your dropshipping website will have a much better chance of being ranked high in the SERPs, or Search Engine Results Pages. Since internet research has shown time and again that the majority of online users seldom go past the first page of search results…..this is obviously where you want to be in order to get plenty of traffic and sales.<br><br>Now, here are some handy SEO tips for your home dropship business:</p> <ul> <li>Use your keywords wisely. If you are writing product descriptions, for example, be sure to have your primary keywords in the first and last sentence of the descriptions. Ditto for the title.</li> </ul> <p>&nbsp;</p> <ul> <li>If you are using content marketing and writing articles to promote your dropship business, use the same principle with your keywords---title, first and last sentence. As far as everything in between, aim for a keyword density of around 2% and write your content for humans instead of search engines. Google will reward you for this!</li> </ul> <p>&nbsp;</p> <ul> <li>Be sure to use good SEO for your image alt tags, meta tags, headers and site map. This will help Google and the other search engine crawlers to find your dropship business site or your listings.</li> </ul> <p>&nbsp;</p> <ul> <li>If you are active in social media marketing, which hopefully you are, don’t forget to use best SEO practices on your social sites, too. Use your keywords to best advantage on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, MySpace, LinkedIn or whatever social platform you are leveraging.</li> </ul> <p>&nbsp;</p> <ul> <li>Submit a site map to Google. Sure, Google and the other search engines will probably find your dropship site eventually without a site map, but submitting it to them expedites the process considerably.</li> </ul> <p>&nbsp;</p> <ul> <li>Use Google Webmaster tools to track and analyze your SEO. You will find a whole suite of SEO tools from Google that can be extremely helpful to you. For instance, you can find out which search queries brought one of your pages up in Google search results, your most popular landing pages and which search engine they came from and even a geographical breakdown of where your click throughs are coming from.</li> </ul> <p><br>Use these SEO tips for your home dropship business and watch traffic and sales soar!<br><br><br><br></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/95927/Hot-SEO-Tips-for-Your-Home-Dropship-Business&bvt=rss">Amanda BrookeTue, 09 Apr 2013 22:44:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:95927http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/77985/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-Boost-SEO-Using-Keyword-Effectiveness-Index#Comments2Ecommerce Dropship Tips: Boost SEO Using Keyword Effectiveness Indexhttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/77985/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-Boost-SEO-Using-Keyword-Effectiveness-Index<br><img id="img-1354335592138" src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/ecommerce-resized-600.jpg" alt="SEO KEI dropship ecommerce business" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" border="0">Using best SEO practices can make or break your online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropship" target="_blank"><strong>dropship</strong></a> or other ecommerce home business, so getting a handle on KEI, or Keyword Effectiveness Index, might prove extremely beneficial to help ensure a steady flow of traffic through your website.<br><br><a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/what-is-seo/" title="Click Here For a FREE SEO Whitepaper!" target="_blank"><strong>Click Here For a FREE SEO Whitepaper!</strong></a><br><br>SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization, which simply means that you are taking steps to make it easier for Google and the other search engines to find your dropship site. If the search engines can’t find your site, they can’t crawl and index it and in that event, you almost certainly wouldn’t have a website or a dropship business for long since if Google can’t find you…neither will anybody else.<br><br>Therefore, it is critical to use good SEO and understanding how to implement the Keyword Effectiveness Index is a giant step in the right direction to boost traffic to your online dropship business!<br><br><strong>What is Keyword Effectiveness Index?</strong><br><br>KEI, or Keyword Effectiveness Index, was first used by Sumantra Roy, one of the most respected search engine optimization experts in the internet, of 1st Search Ranking. In a nutshell, KEI is the initial research done for determining your best dropship business keywords by combining data about Competition and Daily World Searches. <br><br><strong>Why Use Keyword Effectiveness Index?</strong><br><br>The purpose of preliminary keyword research is to get keyword suggestions that are based on your basic keywords. Once you have gotten the suggestions, you can then determine the KEI for each keyword. This is basically how it works: The higher the Keyword Effectiveness Index, the more traffic this keyword should have because your competition for that particular keyword is low and the number of searches done for that keyword every day is high. Armed with the KEI, you can choose from the best suggestions for each of your dropship website pages. This list will provide you with your prime keywords,&nbsp; secondary and so on.<br><br><strong>How to Calculate KEI</strong><br><br>To calculate the Keyword Effectiveness Index, use this formula:<br><br>KEI = (DS^2/C) = (DS/C * DS), where DS is the number of daily world searches and C is the competition. The KEI ranges from 0 to over 400.<br><br>Here is the determination for poor, good and excellent keywords:<br><br><br> <ul> <li>&lt; 0.001 = Poor keyword</li> </ul> <ul> <li>0.001-0.010 = Good Keyword</li> </ul> <ul> <li>0.010-0.100+ = Excellent Keyword</li> </ul> <br>Using the KEI is a classic example of working smarter instead of harder. With the keyword knowledge you gain using the KEI, you will be better able to use best SEO practices and the keywords and keyword phrases that will perform the best for your dropship business. <a href="https://freekeywords.wordtracker.com/" title="Wordtracker" target="_blank">Wordtracker</a> has a great free keyword tool that can help you with SEO and KEI.<br><br>Keeping your dropship business website up to speed on SEO can give you a lead over the pack of competitors nipping at your heels!<br><span class="hs-cta-wrapper" id="hs-cta-wrapper-eaa0c999-1b8f-4288-98b7-98b3f347515b"> <span class="hs-cta-node hs-cta-eaa0c999-1b8f-4288-98b7-98b3f347515b" id="hs-cta-eaa0c999-1b8f-4288-98b7-98b3f347515b"> <a href="http://cta-redirect.hubspot.com/cta/redirect/41336/eaa0c999-1b8f-4288-98b7-98b3f347515b" \=""><img class="hs-cta-img" id="hs-cta-img-eaa0c999-1b8f-4288-98b7-98b3f347515b" style="border-width:0px;" src="http://no-cache.hubspot.com/cta/default/41336/eaa0c999-1b8f-4288-98b7-98b3f347515b.png"></a> </span> <script type="text/javascript"> (function(){ var s='hubspotutk',r,c=((r=new RegExp('(^|; )'+s+'=([^;]*)').exec(document.cookie))?r[2]:''),w=window;w[s]=w[s]||c, hsjs=document.createElement("script"),el=document.getElementById("hs-cta-eaa0c999-1b8f-4288-98b7-98b3f347515b"); hsjs.type = "text/javascript";hsjs.async = true; hsjs.src = "//cta-service-cms2.hubspot.com/cs/loader.js?pg=eaa0c999-1b8f-4288-98b7-98b3f347515b&pid=41336&hsutk=" + encodeURIComponent(c); (document.getElementsByTagName("head")[0]||document.getElementsByTagName("body")[0]).appendChild(hsjs); try{el.style.visibility="hidden";}catch(err){} setTimeout(function() {try{el.style.visibility="visible";}catch(err){}}, 2500); })(); </script> </span><br>If you liked this article, you may also like this one: <a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/32192/SEO-eCommerce-Writing-to-Sell" title="SEO &amp; eCommerce: Writing to Sell" target="_blank"><strong>SEO &amp; eCommerce: Writing to Sell</strong></a><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/77985/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-Boost-SEO-Using-Keyword-Effectiveness-Index&bvt=rss">Hope WhitleySun, 20 Nov 2011 17:05:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:77985http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/77968/SEO-for-Google-5-Tips-for-Your-Ecommerce-Dropship-Home-Business#Comments0SEO for Google: 5 Tips for Your Ecommerce Dropship Home Businesshttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/77968/SEO-for-Google-5-Tips-for-Your-Ecommerce-Dropship-Home-Business<br><img id="img-1354336042068" src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/google_3600x1500-resized-600.jpg" alt="seo for google dropship business" class="alignCenter" style="display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;" border="0">Even if your <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropship " target="_blank"><strong>dropship</strong></a> home business is going great guns at the moment, most ecommerce entrepreneurs are always eager for ways to help them boost sales and traffic to greater volume, so these SEO tips for Google might interest you.<br><br><a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/what-is-seo/" title="Click Here For a FREE SEO Whitepaper!" target="_blank"><strong>Click Here For a FREE SEO Whitepaper!</strong></a><br><br>There are other search engines besides Google, of course. But the fact is that none are as popular or widely used as the giant among them, namely Google. Knowing how to use SEO effectively to make points with Google can be tremendously helpful in growing your dropship business. <br><br>Here are 5 tips for best SEO practices for Google:<br><br>1. Ideally, you should have determined your best keywords before creating your dropship website. However, if you didn’t, all is not lost. You can still sit down and figure out which are your optimal keywords and start using them. Choosing the best and most relevant keywords involves finding the ones with the highest search volume and the lowest amount of competition. There are free tools available on the internet to assist you with your keyword research.<br><br>2. Optimize your titles to the max! The page title tag is one of the most important factors for high rankings with Google. The title tag is shown as the first line of text at the top of the browsing window. An SEO title tag should contain around 60-80 characters and be concise as well as descriptive. This is what will show up in Google search results as a link to your dropship web page, so make it work for you!<br><br>3. Always use keyword rich, relevant headings for your web pages. Your header tags are important&nbsp; because they tell Google what is important on your web page. One best SEO practice for your dropship business is to use your primary keyword or keywords in your H1 header and your secondary keywords in your H2 and other headers. <br><br>4. Always create a site map and Google XML map. When you submit an XML site map to Google, you are facilitating finding and indexing your dropship web site.<br><br>5. Take the time to create a Robots.txt file for Google. This file will tell Google which pages should be crawled and which shouldn’t. Every dropship website is going to have pages that simply are not relevant for search engines and by creating a Robots.txt file that leaves these pages out, you are making it faster and easier for Google to crawl and index your relevant content.<br><br>Use these 5 handy tips to beef up your SEO for Google and grow your dropship business!<br><span class="hs-cta-wrapper" id="hs-cta-wrapper-eaa0c999-1b8f-4288-98b7-98b3f347515b"> <span class="hs-cta-node hs-cta-eaa0c999-1b8f-4288-98b7-98b3f347515b" id="hs-cta-eaa0c999-1b8f-4288-98b7-98b3f347515b"> <a href="http://cta-redirect.hubspot.com/cta/redirect/41336/eaa0c999-1b8f-4288-98b7-98b3f347515b" \=""><img class="hs-cta-img" id="hs-cta-img-eaa0c999-1b8f-4288-98b7-98b3f347515b" style="border-width:0px;" src="http://no-cache.hubspot.com/cta/default/41336/eaa0c999-1b8f-4288-98b7-98b3f347515b.png"></a> </span> <script type="text/javascript"> (function(){ var s='hubspotutk',r,c=((r=new RegExp('(^|; )'+s+'=([^;]*)').exec(document.cookie))?r[2]:''),w=window;w[s]=w[s]||c, hsjs=document.createElement("script"),el=document.getElementById("hs-cta-eaa0c999-1b8f-4288-98b7-98b3f347515b"); hsjs.type = "text/javascript";hsjs.async = true; hsjs.src = "//cta-service-cms2.hubspot.com/cs/loader.js?pg=eaa0c999-1b8f-4288-98b7-98b3f347515b&pid=41336&hsutk=" + encodeURIComponent(c); (document.getElementsByTagName("head")[0]||document.getElementsByTagName("body")[0]).appendChild(hsjs); try{el.style.visibility="hidden";}catch(err){} setTimeout(function() {try{el.style.visibility="visible";}catch(err){}}, 2500); })(); </script> </span><br>If you liked this article, you may also like this one:<strong> <a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/68494/Ecommerce-Dropship-Sales-Plus-Size-Lingerie-is-a-Proven-Winner" title="Ecommerce Dropship Sales: Plus Size Lingerie is a Proven Winner!" target="_blank">Ecommerce Dropship Sales: Plus Size Lingerie is a Proven Winner!</a></strong><a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/68494/Ecommerce-Dropship-Sales-Plus-Size-Lingerie-is-a-Proven-Winner" title="Ecommerce Dropship Sales: Plus Size Lingerie is a Proven Winner!" target="_blank"><br></a><br><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/77968/SEO-for-Google-5-Tips-for-Your-Ecommerce-Dropship-Home-Business&bvt=rss">Amanda BrookeSat, 19 Nov 2011 17:20:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:77968http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/73317/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-Using-Internal-Links-for-Best-SEO-Practices#Comments1Ecommerce Dropship Tips: Using Internal Links for Best SEO Practiceshttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/73317/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-Using-Internal-Links-for-Best-SEO-Practices<br><img id="img-1316797793098" src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/chain%20links%202-resized-600.JPG" alt="dropship business link building" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" border="0">Every ecommerce entrepreneur with a <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" title="dropship" target="_blank"><strong>dropship</strong></a> or other online home business should be aware of the value of using internal links correctly for maximum SEO advantages.<a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/dropshiping-niche-toolkit/" title="Every ecommerce entrepreneur with a dropship or other online home business should be aware of the value of using internal links correctly for maximum SEO advantages.

Here are a few tips to put your internal links to work for you:<br><br>If you haven’t already done so, create a keyword list of your best and most targeted keywords.

This signals Google that the page is important as well as providing some information as to what the page is all about. Also, by linking the page to another destination, it throws up a relevance signal as well as building more pathways within your website.<br><br>If your prime keywords aren’t highlighted on a certain page, try to tuck a few of them into the content in a natural manner so that they don’t appear stuffed or make the content nonsensical.<br><br>Chart and track the results of your efforts in building keyword rich internal links. Remember, search engine algorithms are subject to change without notice and what worked last week might not be getting the job done this week, in which case you will need to revise your strategy.<br><br>Don’t forget some of the most often overlooked sources of valuable internal links: administrative pages. These include your About Me/Us page, Contact Us, Terms and Privacy Policies, Shipping Info, etc. These pages are particularly good because they are usually a mere click or two away from your home page, which is normally the most visited page you have; collecting more links and building more equity.<br><br>These tips can serve you well in your ecommerce dropship home business.<br><span class="hs-cta-wrapper" id="hs-cta-wrapper-eaa0c999-1b8f-4288-98b7-98b3f347515b"> <span class="hs-cta-node hs-cta-eaa0c999-1b8f-4288-98b7-98b3f347515b" id="hs-cta-eaa0c999-1b8f-4288-98b7-98b3f347515b"> <a href="http://cta-redirect.hubspot.com/cta/redirect/41336/eaa0c999-1b8f-4288-98b7-98b3f347515b" \=""><img class="hs-cta-img" id="hs-cta-img-eaa0c999-1b8f-4288-98b7-98b3f347515b" style="border-width:0px;" src="http://no-cache.hubspot.com/cta/default/41336/eaa0c999-1b8f-4288-98b7-98b3f347515b.png"></a> </span> <script type="text/javascript"> (function(){ var s='hubspotutk',r,c=((r=new RegExp('(^|; )'+s+'=([^;]*)').exec(document.cookie))?r[2]:''),w=window;w[s]=w[s]||c, hsjs=document.createElement("script"),el=document.getElementById("hs-cta-eaa0c999-1b8f-4288-98b7-98b3f347515b"); hsjs.type = "text/javascript";hsjs.async = true; hsjs.src = "//cta-service-cms2.hubspot.com/cs/loader.js?pg=eaa0c999-1b8f-4288-98b7-98b3f347515b&pid=41336&hsutk=" + encodeURIComponent(c); (document.getElementsByTagName("head")[0]||document.getElementsByTagName("body")[0]).appendChild(hsjs); try{el.style.visibility="hidden";}catch(err){} setTimeout(function() {try{el.style.visibility="visible";}catch(err){}}, 2500); })(); </script> </span><br>If you liked this article, you may also like this one: <p class="title"><a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/71996/Time-Management-Tips-for-Your-Ecommerce-Home-Dropship-Business" title="Time Management Tips for Your Ecommerce Home Dropship Business" target="_blank"><strong>Time Management Tips for Your Ecommerce Home Dropship Business</strong></a></p> <br><br><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/73317/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-Using-Internal-Links-for-Best-SEO-Practices&bvt=rss">Greg ScottFri, 23 Sep 2011 16:02:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:73317http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/73315/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-SEO-Items-You-Shouldn-t-Forget-Part-II#Comments0Ecommerce Dropship Tips: SEO Items You Shouldn’t Forget Part IIhttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/73315/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-SEO-Items-You-Shouldn-t-Forget-Part-II<br><img src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/home office 2-resized-600.jpg" border="0" alt="dropship home business SEO" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" />SEO is an integral part of your success as an ecommerce entrepreneur with a <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropship" target="_blank"><strong>dropship</strong></a> or other online sales business, and there are certain items that shouldn&rsquo;t be overlooked on your website for maximum results and increased traffic, plus more sales.<br /><br /><a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/what-is-seo/" title="Click Here For a FREE SEO E-Book!" target="_blank"><strong>Click Here For a FREE SEO E-Book!</strong></a><br /><br />Here are a few more important SEO items that are frequently neglected by dropship sellers on their websites:<br /><br /> <ul> <li>Make sure that your alt attributes are keyword enhanced for best SEO practices. This is an area that falls through the cracks all too often on dropship or other ecommerce websites where an omission like this will translate to fewer sales and less profits. While you don&rsquo;t want to over work this point by stuffing too many keywords into alt attributes or adding keywords to bullet points; it is nevertheless a key item that will enhance your SEO and make it easier for the search engines such as Google to find your website.</li> </ul> <br /><br /> <ul> <li>Don&rsquo;t run out of room on your pages for content. Always remember that content is king! For optimal results, every page should have at least 200 words of keyword rich content. Don&rsquo;t neglect such things as headers, either. H1 and H2 and so on headers are a great opportunity to use your keywords for best SEO. Again, don&rsquo;t overdo it by stuffing keywords as far from making brownie points with the search engines, you will antagonize them to the point of possibly even being blacklisted due to your Black Hat tactics, which would sound the death knell for your dropship home business.</li> </ul> <br /> <ul> <li>Internal linking is such an important part of best SEO practices and many dropship entrepreneurs completely overlook the potential in this area. Your internal links are a vast reservoir of opportunity to put your keywords to good use!</li> </ul> <br /> <ul> <li>Use unique, keyword rich meta descriptions for each and every page on your ecommerce website! Bear in mind that these meta descriptions will be the snippet seen in search results, so be sure to include a brief call to action.</li> </ul> <br />These prime SEO items are a fantastic way to grow and build your dropship ecommerce business!<br /><br />If you liked this article, you may also like this one: <p class="title"><a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/27488/A-Tip-for-Better-Dropship-Selling-on-eBay-Increase-Sales" title="A Tip for Better Dropship Selling on eBay: Increase Sales!" target="_blank"><strong>A Tip for Better Dropship Selling on eBay: Increase Sales!</strong></a></p> <br /><br /><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/73315/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-SEO-Items-You-Shouldn-t-Forget-Part-II&bvt=rss">Amanda BrookeThu, 22 Sep 2011 16:14:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:73315http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/73191/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-SEO-Items-You-Shouldn-t-Forget-Part-I#Comments1Ecommerce Dropship Tips: SEO Items You Shouldn’t Forget Part Ihttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/73191/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-SEO-Items-You-Shouldn-t-Forget-Part-I<br><img src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/daryl ebook cover effective marketing revised.jpg" border="0" alt="ecommerce marketing ebook dropship business" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" />There are certain SEO items that are frequently forgotten or overlooked by many ecommerce entrepreneurs on their <strong><a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropship" target="_blank">dropship</a></strong> website.<br /><br /><a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/2-ecommerce-marketing-strategies-to-grow-your-business/" title="Click Here For a FREE Ecommerce Marketing Strategies E-Book!" target="_blank"><strong>Click Here For a FREE Ecommerce Marketing Strategies E-Book!</strong></a><br /><br />These are things that really don&rsquo;t need to be left out as they all play critical roles in the success of your dropship sales business.

Do the necessary keyword research so that you know before even starting to build your website exactly what your prime keywords will be and how to use them for maximum SEO.</li> </ul> <br /> <ul> <li>Use keyword based URLs. There are two types of URLs: Static and dynamic. In static URLs, the contents of the web page remain the same unless the changes are hard coded into the HTML, whereas dynamic URLs are generated from particular queries to a site's database. Search engines don&rsquo;t like dynamic URLs. So, play it safe and use static URLs that are keyword rich.</li> </ul> <br /> <ul> <li>If you are dropship selling more than one product, you should have a unique keyword enhanced URL for each product that you are offering. This will ensure that you don&rsquo;t have duplicate content problems if you have a product on more than one page.</li> </ul> <br /> <ul> <li>Be sure to use 301 redirects if you deactivate a link. If you merely take a page down and fail to redirect, you will lose all of the benefits of links gathered to that page and.</li> </ul> <br /> <ul> <li>Always have a 404 error page that is customized to your dropship website. That way, if somehow someone clicks on a broken link, they will know they are on the right website and not just assume your whole site is defunct and hit the back button.</li> </ul> <br />These SEO tips will stand you in good stead and help to grow your dropship home business.<br /><br />If you liked this article, you may also like this one: <p class="title"><a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/27426/Make-Social-Media-Marketing-Work-for-Your-eCommerce-Business" title="Make Social Media Marketing Work for Your eCommerce Business" target="_blank"><strong>Make Social Media Marketing Work for Your eCommerce Business</strong></a></p> <br /><br /><br /><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/73191/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-SEO-Items-You-Shouldn-t-Forget-Part-I&bvt=rss">Amanda BrookeWed, 21 Sep 2011 16:25:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:73191http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/72337/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-The-Basics-of-SEO-Copywriting#Comments2Ecommerce Dropship Tips: The Basics of SEO Copywriting http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/72337/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-The-Basics-of-SEO-Copywriting<br><img src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/Work-At-Homerev-resized-600.jpg" border="0" alt="ecommerce dropship online home business" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" />If you want to grow your <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropship" target="_blank"><strong>dropship</strong></a> or other ecommerce business, it helps to familiarize yourself with the basics of SEO copyediting.<br /><br />Here is a saying you will see over and over again on the internet: Content is king. This saying has become widespread for the simple reason that it is all too true. Now, more than ever, your content is worth its weight in gold to help boost your rankings in the SERPs, or Search Engine Results Pages. This is especially applicable since Google changed their algorithm.<br /><br /><a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/what-is-seo/" title="Click Here For a FREE SEO E-Book!" target="_blank"><strong>Click Here For a FREE SEO E-Book!</strong></a><br /><br />The days of Black Hat SEO---stuffing your content with keywords just to boost your search engine rankings---are over. In fact, you will find yourself penalized or worse yet, blacklisted by Google and the other major search engines for using this type of Search Engine Optimization. <br /><br />But, you do need to use best SEO practices in your content and your copywriting. Here are a few tips to help you get started with SEO copywriting:<br /><br /> <ul> <li>Remember that your copywriting is being written for humans, not search engine bots. So, be sure to make it interesting, informative, entertaining or otherwise worth reading for human beings. The quality of your copywriting weighs heavily with Google, so bear that in mind.</li> </ul> <br /> <ul> <li>While not stuffing keywords, do understand when copywriting for your ecommerce dropship business that targeted traffic is the best kind of traffic you can get. By judicious use of your prime keywords, you will attract much more targeted traffic---people who are actively searching for what you are selling. This will improve your conversion rate, which is another boost with the search engines, while increasing sales and profits.</li> </ul> <br /> <ul> <li>Although you are writing your content for humans, you must also realize that the way human eyes see a web page is not the way the search engine crawlers view it. So, take pains with your title tags, meta tags, alt image tags, header tags and so on to make sure that they are incorporating your best keywords. This will help the search engines to see what your business is all about and makes it easy for them to show anyone searching for your keywords a link to your website.</li> </ul> <br />Use these SEO copywriting tips to help boost traffic and sales for your dropship online home business.<br /><br />If you liked this article, you may also like this one: <p class="title"><a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/66900/Dropshipping-Cellphones-Accessories-for-a-Profitable-Home-Business" title="Dropshipping Cellphones &amp; Accessories for a Profitable Home Business" target="_blank"><strong>Dropshipping Cellphones &amp; Accessories for a Profitable Home Business</strong></a></p> <br /><br /><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/72337/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-The-Basics-of-SEO-Copywriting&bvt=rss">Amanda BrookeMon, 12 Sep 2011 16:11:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:72337http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/70344/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-SEO-for-Landing-Pages-Part-II#Comments0Ecommerce Dropship Tips: SEO for Landing Pages Part IIhttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/70344/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-SEO-for-Landing-Pages-Part-II<br><img id="img-1354336149260" src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/home%20office%20with%20cat-resized-600.jpg" alt="SEO dropship ecommerce business" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" border="0">Your landing pages are vitally important to the success of your <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropship" target="_blank"><strong>dropship</strong></a> or other ecommerce business and using good SEO will go a long way toward making those critical pages more effective.<br><br>Part I of this series offered a couple of basic but very important tips for optimizing your landing pages for the search engines. Now we’ll proceed on with more timely tips for SEO for your dropship landing pages. This time, we’ll focus on content.<br><br><strong><a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/what-is-seo/" title="Click Here for a FREE SEO Whitepaper That Will Help Your Sales!" target="_blank">Click Here for a FREE SEO Whitepaper That Will Help Your Sales!</a></strong><br><br>If there is one thing that Google and the other search engines love, it’s content. Your landing pages need to have a minimum of 300-400 words and the content should follow through with the theme of the page as well as the promise of the link that brought a visitor to your site.<br><br>One of the biggest reasons for a poor conversion rate is failing to follow through with that promise. For example, if a visitor clicks a link in the search results that mentions “salt water aquariums” then this is obviously where that person’s interest lies. So, you wouldn’t want to lure them to your website landing page on the basis of salt water aquariums as your keywords only to have them land on a page that was about something completely different. <br><br>Whatever your landing page link….make your content on that page reflect the same thing. Use your keywords in this content as long as they flow naturally with the text. Don’t stuff or cram keywords into your landing page content as you might actually find yourself blacklisted by the search engines. In the realm of ecommerce, this would be a death blow to your dropship sales!<br><br>How much is too much when it comes to using your keywords for SEO on your landing pages or other content?<br><br>There are different schools of thought on that subject. Some SEO gurus say it’s best to stick to about 2%, which equals out to around 10 times in 500 words of content. Others swear by using a 3-5% concentration of keywords. Basically, stick to whatever works for you without going over 5% as long as your content reads naturally. Depending on your keywords, it can be challenging to work it or them in naturally 10 or more times within 500 words of content. So just try to do the best you can, knowing that using good SEO practices on your landing pages will help to build your dropship business!<br><span class="hs-cta-wrapper" id="hs-cta-wrapper-eaa0c999-1b8f-4288-98b7-98b3f347515b"> <span class="hs-cta-node hs-cta-eaa0c999-1b8f-4288-98b7-98b3f347515b" id="hs-cta-eaa0c999-1b8f-4288-98b7-98b3f347515b"> <a href="http://cta-redirect.hubspot.com/cta/redirect/41336/eaa0c999-1b8f-4288-98b7-98b3f347515b" \=""><img class="hs-cta-img" id="hs-cta-img-eaa0c999-1b8f-4288-98b7-98b3f347515b" style="border-width:0px;" src="http://no-cache.hubspot.com/cta/default/41336/eaa0c999-1b8f-4288-98b7-98b3f347515b.png"></a> </span> <script type="text/javascript"> (function(){ var s='hubspotutk',r,c=((r=new RegExp('(^|; )'+s+'=([^;]*)').exec(document.cookie))?r[2]:''),w=window;w[s]=w[s]||c, hsjs=document.createElement("script"),el=document.getElementById("hs-cta-eaa0c999-1b8f-4288-98b7-98b3f347515b"); hsjs.type = "text/javascript";hsjs.async = true; hsjs.src = "//cta-service-cms2.hubspot.com/cs/loader.js?pg=eaa0c999-1b8f-4288-98b7-98b3f347515b&pid=41336&hsutk=" + encodeURIComponent(c); (document.getElementsByTagName("head")[0]||document.getElementsByTagName("body")[0]).appendChild(hsjs); try{el.style.visibility="hidden";}catch(err){} setTimeout(function() {try{el.style.visibility="visible";}catch(err){}}, 2500); })(); </script> </span><br>If you liked this article, you may also like this one: <p class="title"><a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/27072/Google-Search-Myths-that-eCommerce-Entrepreneurs-Need-to-Know" title="Google Search Myths that eCommerce Entrepreneurs Need to Know" target="_blank"><strong>Google Search Myths that eCommerce Entrepreneurs Need to Know</strong></a></p> <br><br><br><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/70344/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-SEO-for-Landing-Pages-Part-II&bvt=rss">Hope WhitleyThu, 18 Aug 2011 18:45:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:70344http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/70214/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-SEO-for-Landing-Pages-Part-I#Comments1Ecommerce Dropship Tips: SEO for Landing Pages Part Ihttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/70214/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-SEO-for-Landing-Pages-Part-I<br><img id="img-1354336250070" src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/homeoffice3.jpg" alt="SEO dropship ecommerce online home business" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" border="0">Your<a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title=" dropship" target="_blank"><strong> dropship</strong></a> or other ecommerce business will benefit from using best SEO practices on your landing pages.<br><br>SEO, or Search Engine Optimization, is a critical part of your overall success in an online home business. SEO is what helps Google and the other search engines find your website or dropship products and then show them in the SERPS, or Search Engine Results Pages, to any shoppers out there searching for what you are selling.<br><br><a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/what-is-seo/" title="Click Here For a FREE SEO E-Book That Will Send Your Sales Soaring!" target="_blank"><strong>Click Here For a FREE SEO E-Book That Will Send Your Sales Soaring!</strong></a><br><br>So, it just makes sense that your landing pages---so vitally important in and of themselves---will benefit tremendously from using good SEO. Here are a few tips to help you get the most mileage out of your landing pages with SEO:<br><br> <ul> <li>Title Tags---Your page title tags should be your first step toward incorporating good SEO into your landing pages. You need to really work at using your primary keyword/s right up front at the beginning of the page title tag. For example, if your dropship sales niche is memory foam mattresses and pillows, then your title tag for landing pages should look something like this: Memory Foam--Your Website’s Name. Why is this important? Because the search engines weigh keywords at the front of a title tag more heavily than those at the end.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Meta Descriptions: A meta description is intended to provide the search engines with a little help by furnishing a brief description of the web page as well as its content. Using SEO wisely in your meta descriptions will go a long way toward boosting your rankings in search results. When someone does a search for your keywords, they will see this little dab of information; too, as the search engines usually include your meta descriptions in the results. So, here again--use your primary keyword/s as close to the front of the meta description as you can for the same reason you placed those keywords right up front in your page title tags. Be inventive and try to use those hot keywords twice in your meta description. Here is an example of a well written meta description for someone dropship selling memory foam mattresses: “Memory foam mattresses are a great investment. Sleeping on a memory foam mattress is pure bliss.”</li> </ul> <br>You get the idea.

If you fail to hone your SEO skills and don&rsquo;t work diligently to always stay up to date on current best practices and changes made to Google and the other search engines that will impact how you use SEO---you will be left behind while your competitors sail on to success.<br /><br /><a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/2-ecommerce-marketing-strategies-to-grow-your-business/" title="Click Here For a FREE Ecommerce Marketing Strategies E-Book!" target="_blank"><strong>Click Here For a FREE Ecommerce Marketing Strategies E-Book!</strong></a><br /><br />So, always make SEO best practices a priority. It will only require a few minutes of your time every week to check the World Wide Web for newest SEO information. In fact, you could set up an RSS feed on this topic and then you wouldn&rsquo;t even have to bother to search for news you need to know about.<br /><br />Here are some tips for using SEO wisely for internet marketing:<br /><br /> <ul> <li>Link back to your own website. For example, when you add new website content, which hopefully will be often; be sure to include links back to relevant pages on your website. The search engine crawlers look for links within your content, so make sure there are plenty for them to find.</li> </ul> <br /> <ul> <li>Make full use of your images by having each image description incorporate as many of your prime keywords as possible. This is a great way to use SEO in a way that Google and the other search engines smile upon.</li> </ul> <br /> <ul> <li>Try to avoid using Flash as much as possible as it is difficult for the search engines to link to the page. If you feel that you must use Flash on your dropship website, be sure to add SEO rich text and/or links underneath or above the Flash image.</li> </ul> <br /> <ul> <li>Get the most out of your site map. Use your keywords in your site map for best SEO practices. This accomplishes two things: makes it easier for visitors to your dropship site to find what they are looking for and easier for the search engines to find and access your pages.</li> </ul> <br />Using SEO best practices for internet marketing can vastly improve your dropship sales and increase your home business profits!<br /><br />If you liked this article, you may also like this one:&nbsp;&nbsp;<a><strong title="E-Commerce &quot;Bad Words&quot; That Will Cost You Dropship Sales "> </strong></a> <p class="title"><a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/34829/E-Commerce-Bad-Words-That-Will-Cost-You-Dropship-Sales" title="E-Commerce &quot;Bad Words&quot; That Will Cost You Dropship Sales" target="_blank"><strong>E-Commerce "Bad Words" That Will Cost You Dropship Sales</strong></a></p> <br /><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/68802/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-SEO-for-Internet-Marketing&bvt=rss">Hope WhitleyWed, 03 Aug 2011 16:01:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:68802http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/68314/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-SEO-for-Your-Business-Blog#Comments2Ecommerce Dropship Tips: SEO for Your Business Bloghttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/68314/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-SEO-for-Your-Business-Blog<br><img id="img-1354336532712" src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/blog.jpg" alt="SEO for ecommerce dropship blog" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" border="0">Having a blog for your <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropship" target="_blank"><strong>dropship</strong></a> or other ecommerce business can be tremendously effective as part of your social media marketing campaigns.<br><br>You might not think of a blog as being a form of social media, but make no mistake it about ---it is!<br><br>SEO is very important to the success or failure of your dropship or ecommerce business blog.

Google and the other search engines send their bots to crawl all internet content, including blogs, so if you give them plenty of what they are looking for, you will score points and boost your rankings in search. Your blog posts don’t need to be pages and pages of content. In fact, this is a bad idea. Why? Because few people have the time or inclination to wade through that much material in a blog post. As a rule of thumb, 350-550 words are ample and will get the job done. Besides using your keywords in the body of the blog post, be sure to include them in titles and links to other archived posts, etc. Each title should be unique.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Link to your main website from your blog. This is very important! One link is sufficient, but do have at least one in every post somewhere. By the same token, link from your main website to your blog. Hopefully your URL has your keywords in it.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Use one to two images in your blog posts and be sure to use your keywords in the ALT tags. This is more fodder for the search engines and should not be overlooked.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Make it easy for others to share your blog posts in Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and others by using imbedded widgets. If you have used SEO wisely in your user names and profiles on these social sites, this will boost your rankings in search, also.</li> </ul> <br>Use these SEO tips for SEO best practices in your ecommerce dropship business blog and it will pay off for you in higher rankings in search, more traffic and sales.<br><span class="hs-cta-wrapper" id="hs-cta-wrapper-eaa0c999-1b8f-4288-98b7-98b3f347515b"> <span class="hs-cta-node hs-cta-eaa0c999-1b8f-4288-98b7-98b3f347515b" id="hs-cta-eaa0c999-1b8f-4288-98b7-98b3f347515b"> <a href="http://cta-redirect.hubspot.com/cta/redirect/41336/eaa0c999-1b8f-4288-98b7-98b3f347515b" \=""><img class="hs-cta-img" id="hs-cta-img-eaa0c999-1b8f-4288-98b7-98b3f347515b" style="border-width:0px;" src="http://no-cache.hubspot.com/cta/default/41336/eaa0c999-1b8f-4288-98b7-98b3f347515b.png"></a> </span> <script type="text/javascript"> (function(){ var s='hubspotutk',r,c=((r=new RegExp('(^|; )'+s+'=([^;]*)').exec(document.cookie))?r[2]:''),w=window;w[s]=w[s]||c, hsjs=document.createElement("script"),el=document.getElementById("hs-cta-eaa0c999-1b8f-4288-98b7-98b3f347515b"); hsjs.type = "text/javascript";hsjs.async = true; hsjs.src = "//cta-service-cms2.hubspot.com/cs/loader.js?pg=eaa0c999-1b8f-4288-98b7-98b3f347515b&pid=41336&hsutk=" + encodeURIComponent(c); (document.getElementsByTagName("head")[0]||document.getElementsByTagName("body")[0]).appendChild(hsjs); try{el.style.visibility="hidden";}catch(err){} setTimeout(function() {try{el.style.visibility="visible";}catch(err){}}, 2500); })(); </script> </span><br>If you liked this article, you may also like this one: <p class="title"><a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/26100/Let-Your-eCommerce-Dropshipping-Business-Promote-YOU" title="Let Your eCommerce Dropshipping Business Promote YOU" target="_blank"><strong>Let Your eCommerce Dropshipping Business Promote YOU</strong></a></p> <br><br><br><br><br><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/68314/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-SEO-for-Your-Business-Blog&bvt=rss">Amanda BrookeFri, 29 Jul 2011 17:06:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:68314http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/67663/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-SEO-for-eBay#Comments6Ecommerce Dropship Tips: SEO for eBayhttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/67663/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-SEO-for-eBay<br><img id="img-1354336579072" src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/checklist.jpg" alt="SEO for eBay dropship sales" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" border="0">To be successful with any type of <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropship" target="_blank"><strong>dropship</strong></a> or other ecommerce sales, including sales on eBay, you must build a strong, solid foundation using SEO best practices.<br><br>SEO, or Search Engine Optimization, means enhancing your website or marketplace content to make the most of keywords in order to make it easier for Google and the other search engines to find your website and/or your products.<br><br><a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/dropship-selling-on-ebay-a-tale-of-two-sellers-copy/" title="Click Here For a FREE E-Book About Selling on eBay!" target="_blank"><strong>Click Here For a FREE Whitepaper About Selling on eBay!</strong></a><br><br><strong>Does SEO Help with eBay Sales?</strong><br><br>Absolutely! You may think that SEO is only applicable if you have your own website, but this is a misapprehension that will cost you both sales and money. <br><br>SEO is very important for your eBay content. Ditto for Amazon, Bonanza or whatever marketplace you are using to sell your dropship products. <br><br>Here are some tips and tricks to help you use SEO wisely and boost your eBay sales:<br><br> <ul> <li>Be sure to use your main keywords in your product titles. eBay titles have been limited to 55 characters, but they are increasing this maximum, so you will soon have a little more leeway. Always, always use your keywords! For example, if you are selling a vintage nightgown, the keyword phrase “Vintage Nightgown” should be in the first words of your title, or as close to it as you can get.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Ditto for your product descriptions. Make sure that your descriptions have at least 200 words of content as those are more easily picked up by the eBay search engine, and use your keywords at the beginning and at the end.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>If you have an eBay store, you are allowed to list a lot of keywords, so be sure to take advantage of that opportunity. Make sure to incorporate your keywords in all of your store pages. Name your store categories wisely and make them keyword rich.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Update your eBay store keywords at least every 2-3 months. Search engines love fresh content!</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Create an About Me page for eBay and use your keywords. If you have an eBay store, be sure to link to it and to your products on your About Me page. Search engines love URLs!</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Use a customized Tag Line at the bottom of all your emails that furnish links to your eBay store and/or your listings.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Blog, post on social sites such as Facebook and Twitter---use your keywords and provide plenty of fresh, relevant content for the search engines.</li> </ul> <br>If you do these simple things, you will see an increase in your eBay traffic and sales for your dropship business! <br><span class="hs-cta-wrapper" id="hs-cta-wrapper-eaa0c999-1b8f-4288-98b7-98b3f347515b"> <span class="hs-cta-node hs-cta-eaa0c999-1b8f-4288-98b7-98b3f347515b" id="hs-cta-eaa0c999-1b8f-4288-98b7-98b3f347515b"> <a href="http://cta-redirect.hubspot.com/cta/redirect/41336/eaa0c999-1b8f-4288-98b7-98b3f347515b" \=""><img class="hs-cta-img" id="hs-cta-img-eaa0c999-1b8f-4288-98b7-98b3f347515b" style="border-width:0px;" src="http://no-cache.hubspot.com/cta/default/41336/eaa0c999-1b8f-4288-98b7-98b3f347515b.png"></a> </span> <script type="text/javascript"> (function(){ var s='hubspotutk',r,c=((r=new RegExp('(^|; )'+s+'=([^;]*)').exec(document.cookie))?r[2]:''),w=window;w[s]=w[s]||c, hsjs=document.createElement("script"),el=document.getElementById("hs-cta-eaa0c999-1b8f-4288-98b7-98b3f347515b"); hsjs.type = "text/javascript";hsjs.async = true; hsjs.src = "//cta-service-cms2.hubspot.com/cs/loader.js?pg=eaa0c999-1b8f-4288-98b7-98b3f347515b&pid=41336&hsutk=" + encodeURIComponent(c); (document.getElementsByTagName("head")[0]||document.getElementsByTagName("body")[0]).appendChild(hsjs); try{el.style.visibility="hidden";}catch(err){} setTimeout(function() {try{el.style.visibility="visible";}catch(err){}}, 2500); })(); </script> </span><br>If you liked this article, you may also like this one: <a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/31758/Free-Tools-to-Help-Calculate-Your-eBay-Paypal-Fees" title="Free Tools to Help Calculate Your eBay &amp; Paypal Fees" target="_blank"><strong>Free Tools to Help Calculate Your eBay &amp; Paypal Fees</strong></a><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/67663/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-SEO-for-eBay&bvt=rss">Amanda BrookeSun, 24 Jul 2011 16:05:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:67663http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/64795/Ecommerce-Dropship-SEO-Tips-Understanding-Keyword-Density#Comments4Ecommerce Dropship SEO Tips: Understanding Keyword Densityhttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/64795/Ecommerce-Dropship-SEO-Tips-Understanding-Keyword-Density<br><img id="img-1354336330990" src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/money%20man%20umbrella-resized-600.jpg" alt="seo dropship tips" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" border="0">SEO is tremendously important for your<a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title=" dropship " target="_blank"><strong> dropship</strong> </a>or other ecommerce business, and a big part of SEO is understanding the basics of keyword density…knowing how many are too many and how many are not enough.<br><br>Having too many is bad because Google and the other search engines take a very dim view of what is referred to within the industry as “Black Hat” SEO techniques.<br><br><a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/what-is-seo/" title="Click Here for a FREE Whitepaper to Unlock the Mysteries of SEO!" target="_blank"><strong>Click Here for a FREE Whitepaper to Unlock the Mysteries of SEO!</strong></a><br><br><strong>What is Black Hat SEO?</strong><br><br>Black Hat SEO refers to a practice of stuffing keywords into content for the purpose of making your rankings go up. This is where the so-called “article farms” really had a heyday as articles were pumped out by the thousands crammed with keywords.<br><br>This won’t work anymore. In fact, it will work against you in your dropship business because Google is looking for quality over quality where content is concerned and Black SEO can literally get you blackballed by Google, which would be professional suicide.<br><br>Now, having cleared that up, let’s move along to some tips to help you better understand keyword density and using your prime dropship keywords to boost your search rankings without using too many and defeating your whole purpose.<br><br>First of all, if you were expecting this article to enlighten you as to the exact workings of the search engine algorithms, you are going to be sadly disappointed. We don’t have access to that information, and neither do you. The best thing we can all hope for is to have a working knowledge of how keywords help with the search engines, and go from there.<br><br><strong>What is Keyword Density?</strong><br><br>Keyword density simply means how many times you use one of your pertinent dropship business keywords in your content.<br><br>A good rule of thumb is to aim for a density of approximately 2%. This will equal using your keyword about 10 times in 500 words of content.<br><br>There are SEO gurus who swear by using 3% or even more, but if you stop and think about this---that’s a LOT of the same word within what amounts to around a page of content.<br><br>If it doesn’t flow naturally, as you would use the keyword in conversation, for instance, it’s probably being overused.<br><br>Here is an example of too many keywords:<br><br>“Here on this tropical fish website you will find many tropical fish products and accessories for tropical fish including tropical fish food, tropical fish aquariums, tropical fish books and lots of other tropical fish supplies for your tropical fish.”<br><br>Really….does that read naturally, or sound at all natural?<br><br>Of course not.<br><br>That, friends, is Black Hat SEO. Imagine an entire page of that stuff. Thank goodness Google has made it mostly a thing of the past!<br><br>So, strive to hit a happy medium between too much keyword density and not enough.

Here is a short checklist of some of the most crucial SEO tips you should be utilizing in your online dropship business:<br><br> <ul> <li>Make sure your primary keyword(s) is included in your website URL. For example, if your main dropship product is books, then be sure to use the keyword “book” or “books” somewhere in your URL. It is advisable to drill down a little deeper for long tail keywords. If you sell in one genre only, such as mystery books, then work that phrase into your URL if at all possible.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Always have your keywords in the title tags for your product and/or web pages. This is what will be seen in search results.

First and foremost, have great content. Quality weighs much more heavily with the search engines than quantity, so write good content that isn&rsquo;t full of misspelled words, grammatical errors or crammed with keywords.<br /><br />2. Be sure to use your primary keyword or long tailed keyword phrase in the title tags of your web pages. This will help to get your pages picked up by the search engines and as an added bonus it establishes your keyword as the link in the search engine indexes.<br /><br />3. Always use your keyword in the anchor text of your links. Since links stand out on most of the average web pages, this will give your link test higher priority than other content on the page.<br /><br />4. Be sure to have a site map. Site maps are favorites of search engines because it makes it easier to find your links. Just a plain HTML site map will do, no need for XML.<br /><br />5. Have a larger font size for your keywords. The search engines are canny and know that a bigger font usually indicates content that is more important than the other stuff on a web page, so they will be more likely to pick up your keywords if they are in a larger font. <br /><br />6. Update your pages and content on a frequent and regular basis. Search engines, particularly Google, love fresh, relevant content. So, the more of it you supply, the more favored your dropship business website will be by the search engines. <br /><br />7. Ask for inbound links! This is too often overlooked by ecommerce entrepreneurs but it is a great way to pump up SEO.

There is an oft repeated saying in the world of ecommerce that pretty well sums it up: <br /><br /><em>&ldquo;If you don&rsquo;t exist with Google, you don&rsquo;t exist.&rdquo;</em><br /><br />So, whatever changes Google makes to its algorithm should be of vital importance and interest to the savvy entrepreneur. <br /><br /><a title="Click Here For a FREE Ebook About How to Be Successful in Dropshipping!" href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/whitepaper/drop-shipping-ebook/" target="_blank"><strong>Click Here For a FREE Ebook About How to Be Successful in Dropshipping!</strong></a><br /><br />The latest change is to reward quality over quantity when it comes to content. Frankly, if you are doing what you should be doing with the content for your dropship business, this should make you very happy. <br /><br />Web business people who are already producing quality content that is interesting, informative, relevant and offering something of value to readers will almost certainly find that Google has given them a significant boost in SERPs, or Search Engine Results Pages.<br /><br />On the other hand, those who have been slapping up scads of poor quality &ldquo;articals&rdquo; crammed with keywords will probably see their Google ranking nosedive.<br /><br />By making these changes, Google has taken a giant leap toward making article farms a thing of the past. <br /><br />Yippee!<br /><br />Based on statistics, Google controls over two-thirds of the search market in the United States. So, ranking high in the Google search results can literally mean life or death to many businesses.<br /><br />According to <a title="CNNMoney.com" href="http://money.cnn.com/2011/03/08/technology/google_algorithm_change/index.htm" target="_blank">CNNMoney.com</a>, the online Publishers Association estimates that Google&rsquo;s change in algorithm has shifted approximately $1 billion in annual revenue.<br /><br />Some big article farms such as Mahalo laid off about 10% of its workforce right after Google made the change. The CEO of Mahalo said that the cuts were a result of "a significant dip in our traffic and revenue." <br /><br />So, if you are cranking out tons of low quality articles for your dropship business---poorly written, bad spelling, ungrammatical and nonsensical---just to stuff each one with loads of keywords&hellip;..look out!<br /><br />Google&rsquo;s gonna get you! <br /><br />If you liked this article, you may also like this one:&nbsp; <p class="title"><a title="Drop Ship News: Best SEO Practices for Your Business Blog" href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/43206/Drop-Ship-News-Best-SEO-Practices-for-Your-Business-Blog" target="_blank"><strong>Drop Ship News: Best SEO Practices for Your Business Blog</strong></a></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/62003/Dropship-Tips-Google-s-New-Algorithm-Calls-for-Better-Content&bvt=rss">Amanda BrookeFri, 13 May 2011 16:27:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:62003http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/59086/What-Google-s-New-Algorithm-Means-to-Your-Wholesale-Dropship-Business#Comments0What Google’s New Algorithm Means to Your Wholesale Dropship Businesshttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/59086/What-Google-s-New-Algorithm-Means-to-Your-Wholesale-Dropship-Business<br><img src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/dsa seo.png" border="0" alt="SEO Google dropship" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" />If you have a <a title="wholesale dropship" href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" target="_blank">wholesale dropship</a> ecommerce business, you might be aware of Google&rsquo;s newest algorithm, without being sure if or how it will affect your website. <br /><br />First of all, it really isn&rsquo;t a question of &ldquo;if&rdquo; this new algorithm will affect your website. No doubt about it---it definitely will.<br /><br />Now, the next big question you may have is how your website will be affected by this change in the biggest search engine filtering algorithm. <br /><br />Google&rsquo;s newest update has been nicknamed &ldquo;Panda Update&rdquo; and is not only the talk of the blogosphere but the subject of much discussion anywhere and everywhere people are interested in the state of the World Wide Web, online and off.<br /><br /><strong><a title="Click Here to Get the Inside Scoop on Using SEO to Boost Search Ranking " href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/what-is-seo/" target="_blank">Click Here to Get the Inside Scoop on Using SEO to Boost Search Ranking </a></strong><br /><br />According to the word handed down from Google itself, the purpose of the new search algorithm was to improve and enhance search in general, with the basic targets being content mills and spam/aggregator sites. <br /><br />What is a content mill?<br /><br />In the online community, a content mill is one that cranks out scads of very low quality short articles, nothing more than ads, poorly written and using deplorable language skills in most cases.<br /><br />To Google, these content mills are much the same as puppy mills are to qualified, responsible dog breeders.<br /><br />So, if you have been buying $1 apiece articles from these content mills and stuffing your website with them, you can take it to the bank that the new Google algorithm will affect your website&rsquo;s search ranking.<br /><br />And if this is the case, that will probably be just about all you&rsquo;ll be taking to the bank, since if viewers can&rsquo;t find your online business, they won&rsquo;t be buying from you.<br /><br />Based on recent internet research, the newest algorithm has affected approximately 12% of search queries.<br /><br />If you have noticed a decline in website traffic lately and are concerned that your dropship website might be adversely affected, you can check your website&rsquo;s search ranking here: <a title="Check Your Search Ranking " href="http://www.site-report.com/google.php" target="_blank">Check Your Search Ranking </a><br /><br />Check out Google&rsquo;s new algorithm and make sure your wholesale dropship business is up to speed!<br /><br />If you liked this article, you may also enjoy this one: <br /><a title="Dropship Product Tips: Mastering SEO " href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/54661/Dropship-Product-Tips-Mastering-SEO" target="_blank"><br />Dropship Product Tips: Mastering SEO </a><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/59086/What-Google-s-New-Algorithm-Means-to-Your-Wholesale-Dropship-Business&bvt=rss">Greg ScottFri, 25 Mar 2011 16:05:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:59086http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/54737/Dropship-Business-Tips-Do-SEO-In-House-or-Outsource#Comments1Dropship Business Tips: Do SEO In House or Outsource?http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/54737/Dropship-Business-Tips-Do-SEO-In-House-or-Outsource<br><p>A key decision to be made in the creation and implementation of SEO has to do with whether to handle the process in house or hire a third party to do the work.</p> <p>There are advantages in doing your own SEO for your <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" title="dropship business" target="_blank">dropship business</a> or other online business, besides the obvious advantage of cost.</p> <p><a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/what-is-seo/" title="If Doing SEO Yourself, You Need to Read our SEO EBook.&nbsp; You Can Download Your Free Copy Here" target="_blank">If Doing SEO Yourself, You Need to Read our SEO EBook.&nbsp; You Can Download Your Free Copy Here</a></p> <p>Among these are having complete control over all aspects of the site’s development and progress and being able to learn what is successful and what doesn’t work.</p> <p>However, SEO is very definitely a long-term commitment of time and effort. Some parts of the process can be difficult and search engines can be slow in responding to changes that might ultimately prove successful. For this reasons consideration should be given to using a professional SEO if you don’t feel capable of doing the job yourself.</p> <p>SEO professionals provide a history of varied experiences, might have contacts that are useful and can be depended upon to diagnose and fix possible problems and issues having to do with ranking. Although the SEO professional can generally be expected to cost more money up front, there is a distinct possibility that the project can be completed in less time, and with better results, than a DIY attempt at SEO.</p> <p>If uncertainty prevails on which route to take, be aware that a balance can be achieved by taking part of the project yourself, and hiring an SEO consultant who will charge an hourly rate and provide assistance as requested.</p> <p>However, if you do decide to go with a professional SEO, make sure that your choice is a well educated one as the SEO industry has a reputation of attracting those who cannot be trusted and are not honest. In particular, during the process of choosing a firm, be aware of those who offer link exchanges and “free-for-all” links and beware of overly aggressive tactics such as manipulation and search spam, both of which can result in a ban from search engines, which would be a full-fledged disaster.</p> <p>Here are some examples of pertinent questions to ask of any firm or individual whom you are considering hiring to take care of your SEO:</p> <p>Following are some useful questions to ask a potential SEO provider:</p> <ul> <li>Do you always follow the accepted and approved Google Webmaster Guidelines?</li> <li>What results should I expect and in what time frame? How much experience do you have in the field of SEO?</li> <li>What do you consider to be your most important SEO techniques?</li> <li>How long have you been in business as an SEO consultant/expert?</li> <li>How will I communicate with you?</li> <li>Will you be sharing all of the changes you might make to my website, as well as providing information about your recommendations and why you make those recommendations?</li> </ul> <p>The final bit of advice to keep in mind in implementing SEO is to keep in mind that a huge amount of patience is required for this. In order to have a web site with a strong ranking, build a strong foundation that follows these rules:</p> <ul> <li>Offer content that is different and unique.</li> <li>Build links and relationships with those in other online communities</li> <li>Use discretion when presenting information; avoid display ads and pop-ups.</li> <li>Pay diligent attention to website quality and the success of various promotions.</li> <li>Know the guidelines by which you can determine the success, or failure, of your efforts.</li> <li>Whether you do the SEO yourself or seek a third party provider, make sure the foundation is there, along with a clear understanding of what needs to happen over what period of time.</li> </ul> <p><span class="hs-cta-wrapper" id="hs-cta-wrapper-eaa0c999-1b8f-4288-98b7-98b3f347515b"> <span class="hs-cta-node hs-cta-eaa0c999-1b8f-4288-98b7-98b3f347515b" id="hs-cta-eaa0c999-1b8f-4288-98b7-98b3f347515b"> <a href="http://cta-redirect.hubspot.com/cta/redirect/41336/eaa0c999-1b8f-4288-98b7-98b3f347515b" \=""><img class="hs-cta-img" id="hs-cta-img-eaa0c999-1b8f-4288-98b7-98b3f347515b" style="border-width:0px;" src="http://no-cache.hubspot.com/cta/default/41336/eaa0c999-1b8f-4288-98b7-98b3f347515b.png"></a> </span> <script type="text/javascript"> (function(){ var s='hubspotutk',r,c=((r=new RegExp('(^|; )'+s+'=([^;]*)').exec(document.cookie))?r[2]:''),w=window;w[s]=w[s]||c, hsjs=document.createElement("script"),el=document.getElementById("hs-cta-eaa0c999-1b8f-4288-98b7-98b3f347515b"); hsjs.type = "text/javascript";hsjs.async = true; hsjs.src = "//cta-service-cms2.hubspot.com/cs/loader.js?pg=eaa0c999-1b8f-4288-98b7-98b3f347515b&pid=41336&hsutk=" + encodeURIComponent(c); (document.getElementsByTagName("head")[0]||document.getElementsByTagName("body")[0]).appendChild(hsjs); try{el.style.visibility="hidden";}catch(err){} setTimeout(function() {try{el.style.visibility="visible";}catch(err){}}, 2500); })(); </script> </span></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/54737/Dropship-Business-Tips-Do-SEO-In-House-or-Outsource&bvt=rss">Amanda BrookeMon, 17 Jan 2011 18:19:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:54737http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/54661/Dropship-Product-Tips-Mastering-SEO#Comments0Dropship Product Tips: Mastering SEOhttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/54661/Dropship-Product-Tips-Mastering-SEO<br><p style="margin-bottom: 0in;"><span style="font-family: Arial,sans-serif;">Certainly, being in the top 10 rankings for all major searches does happen, but very few sites really do accomplish this, and sometimes the effort to do so can go far beyond what is reasonable and worth the effort. </span></p> <p style="margin-bottom: 0in;"><span style="font-family: Arial,sans-serif;">It is said that search optimization never rests, so even if a top ten ranking is achieved, the results change every week due to competition, so staying on top would entail the constant monitoring of information.</span></p> <p style="margin-bottom: 0in;"><span style="font-family: Arial,sans-serif;"><a title="Want to Master SEO?&nbsp; Download our free SEO Mastery eBook" href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/what-is-seo/" target="_blank"><span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong>Want to Master SEO?&nbsp; Download our free SEO Mastery eBook</strong></span></a><br /></span></p> <p style="margin-bottom: 0in;"><span style="font-family: Arial,sans-serif;">Preparing for a search engine marketing campaign involves the choosing of the right keywords, the analysis of competition and education on what site submission is and other strategies.&nbsp; The keywords you choose should include the <a title="dropship products" href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/products.php" target="_blank">dropship products</a> or other products you are selling. </span></p> <p style="margin-bottom: 0in;"><span style="font-family: Arial,sans-serif;">It is also important to know when to monitor your search engine ranking, how to look at and how to objectively analyze your results (traffic and conversion) and what common mistakes should be avoided.</span></p> <p style="margin-bottom: 0in;"><span style="font-family: Arial,sans-serif;">Additionally, in preparation for SEO, it is important to understand how the search engines operate.

The search engine then searches through its index and finds everything that matches the request.</span></p> </li> <li> <p style="margin-bottom: 0in;"><span style="font-family: Arial,sans-serif;">Viewing and Ranking Results &ndash; A process in which the search engine, after it has determined the match results, runs an algorithm calculation for each result and decides which are most relevant to the request. The information is then presented to the searcher in order of relevance. </span></p> </li> </ol> <p style="margin-bottom: 0in;"><span style="font-family: Arial,sans-serif;">The next and logical question is &ldquo;How do search engines go about determining relevancy&rdquo;? </span></p> <p style="margin-bottom: 0in;"><span style="font-family: Arial,sans-serif;">The logical answer is that relevancy is determined through an algorithm the search engine employs. Although the search engines strive to keep this information confidential, there are some general rules that are followed, such as:</span></p> <ol> <li> <p style="margin-bottom: 0in;"><span style="font-family: Arial,sans-serif;">The location and the frequency of keywords on a web page.</span></p> </li> <li> <p style="margin-bottom: 0in;"><span style="font-family: Arial,sans-serif;">The proximity of the keywords to the top of a web page.</span></p> </li> <li> <p style="margin-bottom: 0in;"><span style="font-family: Arial,sans-serif;">The frequency with which the keywords appear on a web page, especially close to the top of a web page</span></p> </li> </ol> <p><a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/products.php" target="_blank"><img src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/LP_ebook_image.gif" border="0" alt="dropship product SEO" /></a></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/54661/Dropship-Product-Tips-Mastering-SEO&bvt=rss">Greg ScottFri, 14 Jan 2011 21:14:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:54661http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/54571/Dropship-Product-Tips-How-SEO-Works#Comments0Dropship Product Tips: How SEO Works http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/54571/Dropship-Product-Tips-How-SEO-Works<br><p><strong>HOW DOES SEO WORK?</strong></p> <p>The ultimate and highest objective of search engine optimization (SEO) is to build a website&rsquo;s volume of traffic counts that hopefully will result in conversions.&nbsp; If you sell <a title="dropship products" href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/products.php" target="_blank">dropship products</a>, this can be a very lucrative business model. &nbsp;</p> <p>SEO attempts this by using certain keywords in a search query that will cause the website to achieve a very high ranking.

Part of this strategy involves knowing what keywords are working for those considered to be the competition, especially keywords that are being successfully used by those competitors, the result of which can be seen in the placement rankings.</p> <p>Besting the competition involves knowing what keywords and what search engine services are working, then using (and possibly improving) those keywords. And, while the right keywords are integral to the success of an SEO, it is also important that a web site be content rich.</p> <p><a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/what-is-seo/" target="_blank"><img src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/LP_ebook_image.gif" border="0" alt="Free Dropship SEO eBook" /></a></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/54571/Dropship-Product-Tips-How-SEO-Works&bvt=rss">Madison ClaireThu, 13 Jan 2011 17:30:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:54571http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/54493/Marketing-Tips-for-Your-DropShip-Business-What-is-SEO#Comments0Marketing Tips for Your DropShip Business: What is SEO?http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/54493/Marketing-Tips-for-Your-DropShip-Business-What-is-SEO<br><p><strong>What is SEO?</strong></p> <p>The active practice of optimizing a web site by improving the quality and increasing the amount of traffic to a web site from a search engine through the use of organic or algorithmic (natural) results is known as Search Engine Optimization, or SEO.&nbsp; Effective SEO will drive more traffic to your site and more traffic means more sales for your <a title="dropship business" href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" target="_blank">dropship business</a>.</p> <p>SEO as a science has become a major part of Internet marketing and while it is highly technical, the process has turned into not just programming for the Web, but also into a highly evolved sales technique that involves hundreds of variables that are all brought together into one web site.</p> <p><a title="Want to Learn More About SEO?&nbsp; Download our Free SEO eBook!" href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/what-is-seo/" target="_blank"><span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong>Want to Learn More About SEO?&nbsp; Download our Free SEO eBook!</strong></span></a></p> <p>SEO should be thought of as a highly effective way of marketing through the manipulation and use of the internet.</p> <p>A successful SEO looks at and considers how search engines work and also looks at what people are searching for. To put it simply, the basic idea of SEO involves looking at the website, then editing its content and coding it with specific keywords that increase the website&rsquo;s relevance. The process also involves the removal of barriers to the many indexing activities of search engines.</p> <p>Usually, the number of visitors a site receives is dependent upon how early the site appears in the search results list.</p> <p>With SEO, there are many various kinds of searches that may be targeted, such as searches specific to location, image searches, and vertical search engines that are specific to an industry or industries.</p> <p>The optimization of a web site for search engines involves many different elements, some of which may be intertwined. This process has given rise to a new computer related (and broad) field known as website optimization. The field of consultants who carry out optimization projects for their clients are known as &ldquo;search engine optimizers&rdquo;. These consultants may provide SEO either as a stand-alone service or they might offer it as part of an overall sales and marketing drive.</p> <p>And, because many times an SEO that &ldquo;works&rdquo; might involve changes to the source code of a website, consultant services can be expanded to include both the development and the design of a web site.</p> <p><img src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/DSA bank_robber-resized-600.jpg" border="0" alt="Marketing tips dropship business" /></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/54493/Marketing-Tips-for-Your-DropShip-Business-What-is-SEO&bvt=rss">Madison ClaireWed, 12 Jan 2011 16:13:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:54493http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/54440/Tips-for-Finding-a-Profitable-DropShip-Product-Niche#Comments0Tips for Finding a Profitable DropShip Product Nichehttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/54440/Tips-for-Finding-a-Profitable-DropShip-Product-Niche<br><p><strong>Don&rsquo;t Make Your Niche Too Narrow</strong></p> <p>You shouldn&rsquo;t make your niche too narrow. For instance, if you decide that you want to sell dropship pet beds, don&rsquo;t limit your product selection to just one particular type and brand of pet bed. This is a bad idea.</p> <p>For one thing, you might not be able to get that specific pet bed from your <a title="dropship product" href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/products.php" target="_blank">dropship product</a> source. Besides that, you would be limiting your customer pool too much if you tried to narrow your niche to that extent.</p> <p><a title="Need Help Finding a Niche That is Best for You?&nbsp; Take Our Free Quiz" href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/whats-your-drop-ship-style-0/" target="_blank">Need Help Finding a Niche That is Best for You?&nbsp; Take Our Free Quiz</a></p> <p><strong>Don&rsquo;t Make Your Niche Too Broad</strong></p> <p>While it&rsquo;s a very bad idea to make your chosen niche too narrow, it&rsquo;s an equally bad idea to make it too broad.</p> <p>Especially in the beginning, when you are just starting out in your home <a title="dropshipping business" href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" target="_blank">dropshipping business</a>, you don&rsquo;t want to get too much on your plate.</p> <p>One of the greatest things about dropshipping is being able to sell as many different products as strike your fancy without worrying about paying for them up front, storage or packaging and shipping; but you still shouldn&rsquo;t overextend yourself and have too broad a niche.</p> <p>Using the pet bed scenario again, you wouldn&rsquo;t want to sell umpteen different types and sizes of pet beds plus everything you can think of for pets along with them.</p> <p>Why is this a bad idea?</p> <p>First of all, because if you try to do that, you really aren&rsquo;t targeting a specific niche in such a way that it would do the most good. As you get more solid experience and learn the ropes of running a home ecommerce business, you might want to branch out a bit, but it&rsquo;s better to start slowly.</p> <p>Remember, you have to walk before you can run!</p> <p>Another reason why you probably shouldn&rsquo;t jump right in there and try to sell everything but the kitchen sink is because there would be a lot more work involved in SEO, product descriptions, and photos, social networking to build your brand, web pages to be written, landing pages, Pay Per Click and display ads to be created and paid for, etc, etc.</p> <p>When you are just getting your feet wet in the ecommerce pond, it&rsquo;s probably prudent to wade for a while before diving in headfirst!</p> <p><strong>Show Me the Money!</strong></p> <p>While it&rsquo;s vitally important to find a &ldquo;hungry&rdquo; niche, which means a niche with lots of potential buyers who are searching for products within that niche; it&rsquo;s equally important to make sure that the niche you choose is profitable.</p> <p>This means that you must do some more research to determine if your niche has a sufficient supply of paying customers who not only search and browse within a niche, but buy, as well.</p> <p>For example, there wouldn&rsquo;t be a whole lot of point in choosing a niche that had high numbers of people searching within it, if the products were free.</p> <p>If these folks could get the object of their searches for free, then why would they pay you for it?</p> <p>Exactly. They wouldn&rsquo;t.</p> <p>So, how do you find out if your potential chosen niche has a rich base of consumers waving money and willing to spend it?</p> <p>Go back to eBay and search Completed Listings for the product you are considering selling. You can get a very good idea of the average sell through price, which will tell you if people are not only searching and window shopping for this product, but actually buying it, also.</p> <p><img src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/Daryl-money-womanrev-resized-600.jpg" border="0" alt="Profitable dropship product niche" /></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/54440/Tips-for-Finding-a-Profitable-DropShip-Product-Niche&bvt=rss">Amanda BrookeTue, 11 Jan 2011 20:12:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:54440
