    Hey all. I've had an U.S. e-commerce site for 4 years now. Haven't made much ground in the way of traffic. I'd like to experts to critique what I've been doing and let me know where I can go from here to actually start making decent money. Here's all I've been doing.

    • Using Shopping Engines: Posted my products on Google Merchant Center, The Prowl, and Wanelo
    • I've created a blog for my site
    • Posting my products on my business twitter, facebook, pinterest, instagram

    What else can I do/invest in to get higher traffic? I'm just one guy and between creating the site and marketing, I can only do so much. Thanks.

    So far you have not done any SEO, so get started with the basics. Do some keyword research, make your important pages unique and try ranking for them on search engines.

    Yes, nothing related to SEO has been done yet. Based on your chosen niche, look for the best keywords that you can use on your content. If you are not experienced on these things and you want quick results, you gotta start spending your money to outsource content for your website or products.

    Hello. I've done onsite seo. All of my product pages contain meta information (titles, descriptions & keywords that I researched) related to each the products themselves. The product titles also contain kerywords too. Prolly shoulda mentioned that earlier.. Offsite SEO is what I think I need guidance with the most.
