Which keywords should I focus on?
Try to focus on the first 3 or 4 words, what would you type into Google to find that product? As an example: It is unlikely that a customer would search for “Cousin Bird Red Necklace”, instead we would recommend “Cousin Necklace Bird Theme” The first words that you use is what we will optimise for Google and other search engines for you. Leave that part to us. If the keyword has already been taken, we will add to this or adjust minimally as Google hates duplicate content so we may adjust it to “Cousin Necklace Bird Themed”
When should I expect to see sales?
22/12/2020 Honestly? As a new site there is a lot of work to be done, however we aim to have all of our listings in the top 5 organic searches within 4-6 months, we believe we can do this and then we will see amazing results for us all. That doesn’t mean you won’t see sales before then though.
Blog posts take 6-8 weeks also to show traction, we look forward to working with you all on these too.
