Search engine optimizing an online shop
and sales relevance
When you search engine optimize an online shop, you in most cases choose a couple of broad
which are relevant for the online shop, and you also thoroughly
of the content (on-page1 as well as off-page2).
Min questions at issue are:
1. What part of the search engine optimization is most relevant for a online
shop with a wide range of products and a wide range of customers?
2. What kind of searches on the search engines (which words and phrases)
To get some answers to these questions, I have analyzed statistics from a search engine
optimized online shop. The statistics range is from 2006-January-01 to 2006-December-31.
In the first part I analyze the results for the broad keywords
and the sale they generate.
In the second part I analyze the remaining words/phrases
With a word
I mean a search for a single word. e.g. pens
With a phrase I mean a search for a combination of words, e.g. +pen +ballpoint +green +ink
THE CONDITION FOR THE ANALYZED ONLINE SHOP
The online shop I have analyzed has been search engine optimized for six broad keywords
(very relevant for the shop), and all product pages and information pages has been
thoroughly search engine optimized.
Searching for five of the broad keywords will place the online shop in top 5 result at Google,
Eniro, MSN Live och Yahoo, and top 6 for one of the keywords.
The online shop has been search engine optimized on-page1 as well as off-page2 for the broad
keywords, and for the remaining words/phrases it has only been search engine optimized on-
Results for the broad keywords
The broad keywords generate much traffic. Even if these keywords are very relevant for the
online shop, they do not generate many sales.
Sales frequencies are 0 – 2.63 %
when the visitor has searched for the broad keywords.
If the broad keywords are combined with additional words when searching on a search
engine, they hardly generate any traffic (even if the online shop ranks top 10 combining a
broad keyword with additional words) – this may suggest that the broad keywords are rarely
combined with additional words, the sales frequency are however higher.
Sales frequencies are 0 - 100 %
when combining a broad keyword with additional words.
Results for the remaining words/phrases
The searches for the remaining words/phrases generate sales in 0 % - 100 % of the cases.
Searches with two or more words combined generate most sales (e.g. +fishing +rod
or +fishing +rod +beginner
Exampleword1 + Exampleword3 + Exampleword4: 25.00 %
Exampleword5 + Exampleword6 + Exampleword7: 85.00 %
Also single words that are precise for a product can generate sales in 0 % - 100 % of the cases
if there is no greater competition in visibility on the search engines.
My conclusion is that the broad keywords do not generate many sales (calculated as a
percentage). A search engine optimization for some individual broad keywords are for that
reason, in my opinion, of slight interest for an online shop with a wide range of products and
However it is more important to search engine optimized an online shop (with a wide range of
products and a wide range of customers) thoroughly
to generate sales on individual products.
DISCUSSION OF THE RESULTS
Online shops can differ in product range and who their customers are. Some shops are more
niched in their product range than others and their customers are individuals with a special
The niched online shops does not, in my opinion, need to get thoroughly search engine
optimized as much as the online shops with a wide range of products and a wide range of
customers, because of a broad keyword for a niche could be very precise and apt for their
Of course it is also better to thoroughly search engine optimize a niched online shop, but in
my opinion it is not that important. But more research should be made regarding this and sales
on a niched shop should be compared with sales on an online shop with a wide range of
We should also have in mind that the statistics may differ between business of various kinds.
