If you missed our last Trading Tip on SEO, you can find it here. We covered niche key phrases, keyword density rates, and alternative text.
Creating a title for your content will help search engines categorize and index it. When we are creating a title for this blog, we will title it “Tips to Sell Jewelry Online – SEO.”
When writing for SEO, the point of your title is to not only tell the reader what you will be discussing but to also align with what your key audience would type into a search bar.
When writing long-form content for your jewelry store or pawnshop, it is important that you break it up with subheadings. As only about 10 % of readers will read every word that is included in an article, it’s important that you play by scanners’ rules.
Subheadings play a few key roles.
- Break up content
- Signify a topic change
When optimizing your content for SEO, you will need to make sure your subheadings are relevant to your topic and include your keywords.
How to include Keywords in Subheadings Naturally
With all these rules and guidelines about how to land as a search result, it can feel unnatural to write optimized content.
The key to making your content sound organic is to strictly focus on your message. If you’ve selected a keyword that is relevant to your topic, it is easy to make sure that the keyword is mentioned often, and that all parts of the content are related.
As we covered last week, you can make small changes to your content that aren’t noticeable to the reader but will make it more search-engine friendly. One of these changes can be as simple as adding your key-words to your file names before uploading them!
Pro Tip: Before adding a photo of jewelry to your website, save the photo as a short description of the piece like “diamond engagement ring.” You can also find our jewelry photography tips to help sell jewelry online here.
