Quick General Tips to Consider
It's a rule of thumb to make your content unique. This deals not only with texts, but also images, videos, metadata, and the general look of your web resource. Pay special attention to Category pages and the unique content you upload to them.
Your rank will go higher if you use keywords of your website and your locale. If you are from Spain and your website is in Spanish - use keywords and metadata in Spanish.
If you are going to use Google Paid Campaigns make sure that you:
limit your audience by countries in order to exclude low converting countries and those that do not speak the language of your website;
you can run 2 campaigns at the same time: 1 with English keywords, and 1 with Local keywords since, in each country, people search in both languages.
Do not concern yourself with writing meta tags: keywords
Post links to your main page and your categories pages from other resources. If you have your own blog - write articles showcasing your website, web templates and categories. If you do not have one - talk to popular blogs and websites with content relative to your own project and agree on posting links.
Share the info about your website on Social media. Link to the categories and main page.
Always test your SEO. There are plenty of services online:
ahrefs.com - shows the links to your website, anchors, keywords, estimated traffic amount
semrush.com - shows traffic and its sources, your competitors.
Let's now consider how to optimize each of them the right way.
Write the title of the main page using the BEST keyword for your site.
Meta Description should contain the major advantages of your shop and the templates you sell. Make sure they are unique! It does not influence SEO much, but it has great impact on the customer’s decision.
In the text blocks, you need to fill in both header and footer sections. Make sure you have <h1> tags with the title that includes your main (BEST) keyword. It is also highly recommended to have content with <h2> tags, which contains a relevant keyword other than the main one. Make sure that all your content has at least 90% uniqueness.
CMS Type Page
Change the default value of the title:
Leave the %TYPE% macros and add your own text.
In Meta description, add the general advantages of buying templates, and precise reasons why they should buy from you.
There is no need to fill in the text blocks on the CMS TYPE PAGE.
Navigate: Texts->Types. Here you can manage Title, Meta-tag and Text blocks of each CMS Type.
The rules are similar to the index page:
title must contain a keyword relevant to this CMS type,
Meta Description contains general advantages of this CMS and your shop,
text blocks must contain unique texts, images with <h1> and <h2>.
The practice shows that these pages attract more traffic than others. So make sure that you invest enough time in their creation. Change the default title:
Leave the %Category% macros and add your own text.
In the Meta description, add general advantages of purchasing templates and why they should buy from you.
