    Dear all,

    I am working for an online shop selling bed, matress and decoration accessories in France.

    I am trying to improve their ranking on google.fr and increase the sells as well.

    Could you give me some advice of how to improve the website quality visit.

    Actually i am already doing:

    1/ Submission to yahoo answer of question with link pointing to thewebsite.
    2/ Submission to directory related to their business category (decoration).
    3/ Forum Posting (Asking question like: What do you think of this nice bed...)

    Could you give me advice of what can i do else, and if what i am doing has any chance to pay later on ?

    Thanks for your kind help !

    Cheers,

    Furfing

    Well, I feel somehow qualified since I have many sites that are doing quite well in Google.fr, including top results for "big keywords"

    You need to add quality content + get quality backlinks from other related sites.

    And I am not talking about getting these recip links for all those french directories that are asking you for a return link.

    But I can't comment on the viability of the business model like the previous poster did.

    Good luck

    Hello,

    Thanks for your message.

    Let me just higlight that the shop i am talking about is already doing 7000 euro a month of sales with the internet.

    Many people come to the shop after visiting the website thus.

    So i think e-biz market in France is quiet good.

    Cheers

    Thanks for your advice but french user doesn't seems to consult Autopligg.

    The website i am talking about is http://www.futonbretagne.fr/boutique/

    Maybe you would have advices about how to make it better for SEO and how to target local french user ?

    Thanks a lot,

    Furfing

    1) The page http://www.futonbretagne.fr/boutique/ has a spamming title. That is way to long. Use 6, maximum 10 keywords.

    2) Put a paragraph explaining your store in your main store section (http://www.futonbretagne.fr/boutique/). You have no content but images. You can put something below those images. Use that text wisely and insert some keyword in it. You can also use meta description to choose the appropriate snippet that will appear in google's search results.

    3) Many of your inner pages like http://www.futonbretagne.fr/boutique/products.php?product=Lampe-Japonaise-Tobe, http://www.futonbretagne.fr/boutique/products.php?product=Grande-Tokyo, etc have no description. Make sure you write a UNIQUE description, else google won't rank this web page.

    4) If you have a budget, find relevant websites and purchase links off of them. DP's buy sell and trade section is very good place to go. Avoid services such as text link ads, linkwort or anything alike. Only buy one on one basis to avoid any obvious traces.

    5) Link to your main page as well as inner pages. Analyze your logs and item order history. See which inner pages (products) sell most and try to rank it along with your main page.

    6) Nofollow your unimportant pages.

    7) Yes linking with the anchor Futon, if that is what you want to rank for, is the way to go. Also be sure to vary your keywords. Don't build 1000 links with the same anchor. Use some variations like "good futon", "blue futon", "cheap futon"... obviously in your own language and with the appropriate additive keywords. Remember to link also to your inner pages, don't just build links for the homepage.
