Shopify SEO Consultant

Increase Sales in Your Shopify eCommerce Website.

 

I provide professional SEO consultancy to businesses running Shopify as their website platform. If you are looking to catapult your shopify rankings forward I can help – I have extensive experience working with and optimising shopify websites.

You might think that Shopify is the “website builder for small businesses”, but with an almost 5% web presence among the top 10,000 most visited sites in the world today and a boost of over 500% since July 2017, it’s clear that there is still a lot of room for growth. There are lots of ways you can improve your SEO when using Shopify.

If you are running this CMS for your ecommerce website – then you’ll already know how important it is to get traffic to your website so that you can sell products (at the most fundamental level). People who search google for products you have to offer should be able to find your store – if they can’t, that means you need a highly experienced shopify SEO expert to optimise your web shop.

Out of the box, shopify has some basic SEO functionality, but in general, most standard shopify deployments are not optimised and will often carry with them issues with cannibalisation, index issues, product accessibility issues and more.

Shopify is the second most popular online eCommerce platform, only being surpassed by Woocommerce. With over 100m websites running Shopify, there is an inherent need for Shopify SEO experts who know where common issues arise and how to fix them.

 

Shopify SEO Services I Offer

I offer an array of Shopify Search Engine Optimisation Services designed to get your eCommerce website ranking for relevant keyword and category based searches.

I offer a full range of shopify optimisation services from auditing to advanced theme.liquid optimisations. Some of the core services I offer include:

As an SEO expert with over 21 years of experience, I’ve dealt with all aspects of shopify store optimisation from dealing with ghost URLS and stray collections / tag URLS through to dealing with issues caused by infinite scrolling – which coincidentally isn’t great for SEO.

From start to finish, I can audit your store, identify all of the issues that are impacting your rankings (or lack thereof), implement fixes and help drive strong organic growth for your shopify website.

Through a proper strategy, testing and optimising methodology – I can ensure that all of the categories and products / collections in your store are optimised, fast, accessible and most importantly, relevant for your end users. By creating high quality relevant content, and combining it with properly structured product collections and product pages, I can ensure that your store URLS become more prominent on the first page of search engines for relevant keywords.

Good SEO is about driving relevance, trust and good user experience – I help drive your Shopify stores relevance up, making it far more likely that you’ll appear at the top of google and search engines alike for relevant keywords.

    Why do I need search engine optimisation for my ecommerce store?

    Shopify like any content management system will often require configuring and optimisation based on your theme, website category and product setup.

    With search engine optimisation, your ecommerce store can rank more prominently in search engines, meaning more of your target audience can find your site and buy your products. Without SEO, you may find that ranking performance in search engines such as Google and Bing is poorer. If you cant find your website on page 1 whilst Googling products or product categories than that is a sure fire sign that your business requires the expertise of a shopify SEO consultant.

    Without site optimisation and a complementing digital marketing strategy it’s likely that your potential customers will buy from highly ranking competitors – which, isn’t good for your business, revenues or margins.

    Why go through the investment of having a shopify website built and not having any customers buying your products?

    How long will it take my shopify store to start ranking?

    There are no arbritary time-frames for ranking – it will really depend on your websites current organic performance, domain authority and product coverage. 

    With a shopify SEO expert such as myself, most clients can start to see noticeable ranking increases during months 3 to 6, however this is very much conditional on where your website ranks currently, your target niche and equivalent product coverage.

    Brand new shopify deployments will generally take longer to rank if they are on a new or weak domain (as determined by domain authority and trust). With a new website, there needs to be time for trust to be built in the brand and domain – however, for more new websites, long tail keyword opportunities are a great way to get results quickly.

    For existing shopify websites, time to rank is entirely dependent on existing performance, budget and product / category or collection coverage – and can be influenced by any SEO services delivered previously either through seo shopify experts or through an seo company.

    Before you hire me as your shopify seo expert, I’ll give you an initial search performance assessment which will give you insights into how long I think it will take to reach specific ranking points and the potential investment required.

     

    How much will an SEO campaign cost?

    Shopify SEO Campaigns can cost anywhere from £1000 per month to £5000 per month onwards depending on the size and scope of products to rank as well as how competitive the niche is.

     

    SEO campaign costs will vary depending on the size of the website, volume of products, how competitive the niche is and what current search visibility performance looks like. Typical day rates for Shopify SEO start from £350.

    I provide a free no oligation quote for shopify SEO services, detailing what can be done, a roadmap of work, projected ranking timeframes and a summary of quick wins.

    Using an seo consultant over an SEO agency or typical SEO company can save money, allowing your business to invest more into other important aspects of the SEO campaign such as digital PR.

     

    Will all of my technical SEO issues be fixed?

     

    As your shopify SEO expert, I will work with your business, webmaster, developers or heads of marketing to ensure ALL technical SEO issues are dealt with. Most Shopify SEO problems are easily solvable, but, that will depend on the nature of your theme, liquid files, existing configuration and flexibility for changes.

    Some of the most common SEO issues known with Shopify include:

    • Inability to edit tag pages
    • Duplicate content on various URLS from collections to tags
    • Duplicate page titles and meta
    • Fixed URL structure
    • Fixed robots. txt
    • Limited customization of pages
    • Limits on page titles and meta descriptions
    • Poor initial template performance including poor page speed / core web vitals, clunky theme etc.

     

    How long will it take to fix all the SEO issues on my Shopify website?

     

    Most fixes related to technical SEO on your site can be implemented very quickly with an agile SEO strategy. How long it will take is really dependent on the size of your shopify website and the complexity of pre-existing pages, theme and add ons used.

    For most clients, a technical SEO roadmap in month 1 will highlight timeframes for resolving all on page / technical SEO issues that could be impeding your shopify rankings in search engines.

    As a shopify SEO expert with over a decade of experience, I am able to implement corrective fixes to most shopify SEO issues within the first 1-2 months of the SEO campaign starting.

    Advanced or more complex websites may require the addition of a shopify developer to help speed up implementation, testing and resolution of search engine optimisation issues.

    Typically month 1 is reserved for fixing more essential issues relating to a websites crawlability and how easy it is for search engines like Google to crawl and index within search results.

    Will I see more website traffic and sales quickly?

     

    70% of clients see traffic growth within the first 3-6 months of any SEM / SEO campaign. Ranking increases are generally noticed first, followed by an increase in impressions and clicks. Sales growth is entirely dependent on a number of things including product pricing, brand establishment and other trust factors.

    As a highly experienced and respected Shopify SEO Consultant, I can also support your marketing endeavours with conversion rate optimisation – helping to convert more customers at basket / checkout and point of sale.

    Any business owner will want to see a return on investment as quickly as possible – which is why SEO and conversion rate optimisation go hand in hand to drive an increase in online sales. SEO for shopify needn’t be a complex mish mash of reviewing seo agency proposals or going from seo specialist to seo specialist – with a proper shopify search engine optimisation campaign, I can ensure that growth, ROI and website traffic is a reality.

    Can I optimise my own Shopify Store?

    Of course, some businesses may not have the luxury of affording an SEO consultant to optimise a shopify website and therefore may resort to shopify SEO guides and do it yourself tutorials. There are a number of add ons that can be used to help improve performance.

    Boosting SEO for your Shopify store isn’t just about understanding and implementing SEO best practices. Although this is an important component of your strategy, for the best possible results, it’s also essential to use the right tools.

    You can have great content on your product pages and even in your blog (if present) but that’s simply useless if there is no traffic coming.

    Learning to become an SEO specialist so that you can perform your own search engine marketing on your website is something that can take years of practice to do – this is typically why businesses big or small will hire a consultant like myself to undertake the work.

    Is it hard to optimise a shopify website?

     

    The answer is…….

    Possibly. So, the extent of optimisation required and what can be implemented is conditional on many different things – primarily the theme you are using. Some themes come ready optimised for Google Core Web Vitals / Page Speed Insights whilst some do not, there are thousands of shopify themes such as Narrative, Simple, Debut, Supply, Brooklyn, Venture, Turbo, Boundless and more! 

    The CMS itself offers all the basic SEO functionality you would expect, but, for many setups there will always be something that may need customisation to THEME.LIQUID files or custom blocking to prevent GHOST URLS / Duplicate tag/collection URLS from appearing in Google’s index (this can and does lead to cannibalisation) which is bad, especially for eCommerce SEO services.

    “Most Websites have basic issues that can be fixed quite quickly”


    More than 80% of Shopify websites suffer from basic configuration issues, poor core web vitals, outdated SEO plugins amongst other issues.

      5 star review  I have used Daniel for SEO consultancy for the last 3 years. He's helped our jewellery business to grow significantly online. We initially used Daniel for some SEO consultancy, but, after a few months we realised it would be better to just hand the SEO over to him completely. Since then our keywords are all showing prominently in Google and our analytics traffic is up 100's%. I can't thank Daniel enough and I hope this review encourages others to seek his expertise.

      5 star review  We have been working with Daniel on our national flooring site since last November focusing on link building and on page fixes. We were told it takes up to 6 months for result to manifest however we are already starting to see some good increase in organic traffic. Daniel is great to work with and tells it how it is without the fluff. Highly recommended.
