    Hey all,

    I have a Shopify store that I use to try and sell stuff on Facebook. I've had mediocre success and I've decided that I am going to rework my website a bit to concentrate on a certain niche instead of having a little bit of everything.

    I also use my website as the middleman for selling shirts on Amazon.

    Here is my question: What is the best way to SEO my site to be seen on the first pages of Google? The only thing I have on my site right now are listed products, nothing more. No blog, nada. Can a site like this be SEO'd? If so, where do you recommend I start?

    I am willing to invest a bit of money into SEO to see if it actually works.

    Thanks!

    EDIT: I purchased a website that is linked to my Shopify Store.

    For selling niche shirts, you need to do niche related SEO or ad campaigns if you want more eyes on your products.

    Yes, your site can and should have SEO work on it. Will it get to the front page? Maybe. Depends on what keywords and if people even look for those keywords.

    Since it sounds like you're ONLY listing the product and not adding anything else, adding descriptions or tags with keywords and possibly long tail keywords could be beneficial. For example, if you're selling shirts with designs like 'hamburger wearing hats' or 'hotdog wearing a t-shirt' and you don't have additional keywords, you could be missing out on potential sales. Having keywords like like 'hotdog shirts', 'food shirts', 'shirts with food designs', etc. could help draw some eyes to your site. Doing that by itself won't put you on the front page but it helps. Take a look at this random shirt I pulled: threadless.com/product/3670/The_Hanging_City/tab,guys/style,shirt & look at the tags below for example.

    For ads, you can do facebook, instagram, or google ads that your niche market would possibly search or just advertising directly to facebook groups that are in your niche. For example, if you're selling shirts for foodies then ads for foodie groups could draw eyes to your website.

    In short, you're probably better off doing ads for selling shirts on social media. Buying SEO backlinks or making blogs for selling shirts doesn't sound like its worth the energy unless you're confident that your shirts can penetrate your niche market. If your niche was 'mothers who love food' then you could possibly advertise in mothers and cooking facebook groups for example.

    Thanks Chief! I appreciate the information. I'll work on my tags. I have a shirt section on my Shopify simply for Amazon purposes. My main products are jewelry related.
