    Hey guys last month i've opened an ecommerce website if you wanna check it out PM me it sells computer parts and soon more phone cases I know SEO takes a lot of time and so far i've been receiving zero real traffic i only get traffic from this fiverr gig. Should I just keep updating products and just wait my way to the top of google what do i need to do? I've tried advertising using google and facebook it's too expensive and nothing converted.

    try adding a blogging & review section for your products & write at least 5-20 posts a day. You'll probably reach 50 visitors a day within 2-3 weeks.

    In the E-commerce website you are direct dealing with customers so there is always need to have no hidden charges. All your services charges should be specified clearly so that customers do not annoy and visit again to your website.

    Start a section called "Blog" and it will help you to get more number of links for your website. More links would lead to more search engine catch for keywords and you will be rolling on with orders. Vital part is write proper product descriptions as google hits the ass of bad writers.

    You can integrate blogs and forums. Then participate in social networking sites. This would be basic and general one.

    Promote your site by participating in blogging communities and forums in your niche. If you have a blog, write useful quality content.

    If I was you I would focus on quality and utilizing social media to your advantage. You need to be able to connect with people and tell them about your products and prices as a third party. Yes it takes time and direct work but it can be rewarding.

    Here's the first thought - what really was your goal for this site? What sort of keyword research did you do prior to building the ecommerce site? Are you trying to build an authority site / brand? What are your main sources of traffic you are going to try and build?

    These are the most common sources of traffic for an ecommerce site:

    - Search Engines (SEO)
    - Social Media
    - Email Marketing
    - Content Marketing (Blog posts, guest posting, blog commenting, etc)
    - Pay Per Click (PPC)
    - Affiliates
    - Product Listing Ads (Amazon / Google)
    - Comparison Shopping Sites (Nextag, PriceGrabber, etc)
    - Remarketing

    Assuming you are trying to generate Search engine traffic, then the keyword research NEEDS to be done. The initial layout of the ecommerce site is directly related to the keyword research you did on the site.

    Now, assuming the site didn't have any keyword research done on it prior, you can still do some keyword research on the backside. Start taking some of your product names and plop them into a keyword research tool as a seed keyword, and look for products that will have low / medium volume, with minimal competition. For ecommerce, if you don't see huge brands dominating the SERP, its usually a good one to attack. The huge brands I'm talking about on most SERPs are sites like Amazon and Walmart. Once you find those keywords, write the best description for the product you've ever seen, SEO optimize the page, and build some backlinks to the page. Watch it rise, and watch it sell.

    At the same time, do keyword research for your category names. Effectively treat those categories as Mini niche sites. Build authoritative relevant content on your category pages. Build backlinks to those pages.

    Your overall goal should be to build your website into an authority / brand in your niche. Building traffic to the inner pages gives your ecommerce site other things it needs to grow: reviews, social shares, and other user generated content. The reality is, the niche you are in is extremely saturated, and trying a top - down approach from the start is a recipe for failure.

    Do a backlink check on all of your competitors, and replicate as many of the backlinks as you can for their sites, unless they look suspicious.


    That's just a quick SEO primer...there's other strategies that can be used on all of those other methods listed above. On the "free" methods, here's some high value things you can do:

    Setup google alerts for product names and other descriptive names in your niche. Any time someone posts a relevant question about a product, answer the question and give them a link to your site. Take a variation of the answer, and add it to the product detail page to give your page more relevant content. If you start seeing a lot of the same questions, build an authoritative page on your site answering those questions, and start directing everyone to that page for the content.

    Build a facebook page around content related to your niche. In this example, probably some sort of computer repair tips, computer news, etc. Contact owners of other facebook pages that have similar topics, and ask to cross post to build audiences. Use the facebook page to drive traffic to your site.

    Build an infographic that will be shared and talked about. Contact 200 people in your niche via twitter / email, letting them know about that awesome resource.


    Those are just some ideas....There's SO much you can do, it's a matter of picking and choosing the path you want to take. Pick a path, write down the actual steps on how to achieve it. Work on a few steps a day. Eventually you'll drive traffic.

    Become a vendor on pricewatch and amazon... hopefully your margins are good.

    If not then consider direct marketing to places that frequently need the parts you sell... email and snail mail to the right audience...

    For example... a friend of mine got into the niche of setting up new offices with PCs and network infrastructure. He'd look for when commercial rental space would leave the listings and then he would mail a brochure to "The New Tenant @" with his service. A lot of the new businesses would need to procure 10 or more computers at a time (pcs, cash registers, security systems, printers and file servers, UPS, etc).
