    Hello,

    I have a eCommerce store up and running. Now all I need to do is get all of the keywords indexed on google

    Say someone types in a product model. I want my website to show up with the keyword for the model

    Should all my backlinks go to the main website? Or should they go to different product URL's?

    The thing is, I have so many products listed, I cant create backlinks for each URL

    You want to link back to your home page using you main keywords AND link to subpages with keywords that are relevant to their content. Remember, on an ecommerce site, 99% of your products will be on subpages. When a customer or potential customer searches for one of your products, you want THAT products page to rank in the search engine at the very least. If only your homepage comes up when your customer is looking for a SPECIFIC product, then that customer will have to 'click' more to get to what they want... which basically increases your risk of losing that sale. Hope that helps.

    Thanks for the response. So how would I make link for my subpages? Would I just enter keywords and create a link to the subpage fo each keyword?

    Any advice on how to get my products listed on first page of google would be helpful

    If you don't have one already make a G00gle Webmasters tool account (ie: make a fresh gmail account just for this. Go to settings account and add more, add every single thing under webmaster stuff). Make sure your sitemaps are current and submit them to G. Create a G00gle Base products feed and add it to your G profile. Most carts have tools to do this built in or available as an add-on. This way when someone searches for "Purple Credenza" a link to your "Purple Credenza"will appear in the results because the G Base file will include the path to each of your products.
