In the competitive world of ecommerce search marketing, videos are virtually a must-have. Videos can help in many forms of marketing and social media. It's an engaging form of content that can offer immense value for ecommerce SEO, PPC (landing pages,) YouTube marketing, social media and content marketing.
Like any form of content marketing, it's the quality and relevancy of the content that ultimately steers rankings. Classic SEO (keyword optimization and link popularity) is only a fraction of the pie. Social signals (or "social indicators" - likes, tweets, shares, +1's) are becoming increasingly impactful for ecommerce SEO and keyword rankings.
Below are few tips to make the most of videos for ecommerce SEO and search marketing.
Although keyword optimization is a minute aspect of the SEO process, ensuring that your videos are keyword relevant is the foundation. Here is a tutorial I put together that offers step-by-step instructions on how to optimize your videos for SEO.
Social media and SEO almost go hand-in-hand, particularly for ecommerce SEO and Internet marketing. Social media is the primary avenue to share and promote your video content to your target audience. Not only can this naturally inbound traffic to your website, but the social signals mentioned above will empower a video's SEO value.
A sitemap is similar to an index - it contains links to select pages of a website. When it comes to SEO for ecommerce sites, the sitemap is one of the most important pages of the website.
Creating segmented sitemaps is wise approach for deep ecommerce sites with thousands of pages. A sitemap that's dedicated to videos is extremely helpful for video SEO. It basically tells Google spiders "Hey! Here's the videos on this website. Crawl and index them, STAT!"
One thing I constantly preach to SEO's and content marketers is the power of being an educator. This hits home during the planning stages for video production. Think about the type of content you target market wants to see. For ecommerce, typically quality, unbiased product reviews are key.
Here you are educating your audience about certain products. As a result, they will have more trust and credibility in your brand. To learn more about this concept, visit this blog post about being an educator for SEO.

Backlinks have always been an effective method to improving a website’s visibility. However, the way in which they are implemented has changed. This is mainly because the references generated have to bring about organic growth of the website’s popularity. Any unnatural growth as a result of backlinks may result in search engines shying away from the site.
New methods of creating backlinks have therefore been introduced to satisfy search engine criteria. Thus, PR6 backlinks are catching on while techniques such as comment spam are losing grace. It is easy for a layman to consider the backlinks as a method of sharing. Users of sharing platforms like pinterest may therefore look forward to using them as a method of spreading the word.
Pinterest images are tagged and indexed and this is immediately visible to the world. The tags must carry weight which means the more panda updates are done the more visible the content becomes. It is good to form a habit of double-checking that your pinterest images are tagged correctly and that they represent the correct topic. Then the tagging begins and a positive outlook for natural ranking. Connecting Twitter and Facebook accounts to Pinterest will help to ensure automatic updates in all the accounts, which increase the number of people viewing the posts at a time. Interest eases the process and helps to edit by displaying all images ready to be tagged. The site management and creation of backlinks does not require profound knowledge of web page coding.
Pinterest has come into popularity at a time when Internet users and businesses have come to expect more images and videos and fewer words. Thus, the website has to be visually stimulating in order to score high points on the web. Pinterest helps the webmasters to do just that. As long as the images are relevant to the topic, then they will boost the website’s popularity in a relatively short amount of time.
Once viewers discover your site and affirm it to be credible, they will keep coming back thus contributing to the cumulative growth of traffic. They will share or comment thus helping to advertise the website to their circles. Using images as links brings attention to your website content that normal links could not have done. The web page is automatically appended to lead interested users to more content.
A short description should accompany each image once pinned. The description involves a keyword or keywords. This will make it easier for others to find the images that have topics of their interest. The audience enticed in this way is the right target for your blog since they have vested interest in the subject. This kind of traffic is more likely to participate in the blog then others drawn in by random references.
The keyword database is still new in Pinterest so it might not have keywords that are as diverse as one would like. However, this is the right time to use the facility because using it early on will capture the most common keywords.continue...
