To optimize your online store for search engines, you can follow a few basic steps:

  • Find keywords that are relevant to your products and your brand. What search terms can customers use to find your store?

  • Add the keywords into your content, including product titles, descriptions, and blogs

  • Add your sitemap.xml to Google Search Console, so that your online store website can be easily crawled and indexed.

Note: Google indexes your site automatically within 48 to 72 hours after you add or update information. You can't force Google to re-index your site, but you can prompt them to do so by using Google Search Console. Google doesn't index all of the pages on a site. Learn more about what to expect when your site is indexed from the Google Search Console Help.

Create content that's relevant to your products and encourage other websites to link back to your online store.
