JSON-LD for SEO is a premium app that has been designed and optimized to get you results in Google, fast.
As much as we’d like SEO to be a one-and-done sort of thing, it’s not. SEO requires ongoing work to optimize your site as your customers’ needs and requirements from Google change.
Like any marketing activity, you’ll want to invest time, money, and resources in organic results.
If you’re like me, this sounds exhausting! But I also know it’s the reality of running a successful business.
So where do you start?
A Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) is likely what keeps your business ticking. You’ve found a technique or routine that works to get the product out the door. Or a template email to use when responding to customers.
SEO is no different.
Think about what procedures your currently doing (or should be doing) that can be repeated. Create a document that can guide you so you don’t have to remember what you did last time. It’s also super helpful if you’re ready to hand off this task to someone else if needed.
Don’t overthink this part. I recommend using a Google Doc that can be shared and edited by many people.
A few things to get you set up for success:
As you’re defining your process, you may choose to include details that help you to be consistent.
For example, the format you use for your SEO product titles and where those are stored (e.g. in Shopify itself, in an SEO app, etc).
Another example could be ensuring that your product descriptions have consistent headings. (e.g. All food products must have an ingredient heading.)
For unimportant steps, you could be more brief. Instead of writing out every link to click and including a screenshot of every page, you could have a line like “Go to the Shopify Admin and find the product”.
Having simple steps like this will make creating the procedure a bit easier upfront and could save you a bit of rework as it evolves.
With a basic skeleton of your procedures in place, here are the regular SEO activities you should consider. Feel free to adjust but make sure you’re not procrastinating the work just because you don’t want to do it. Don’t forget to add to this list based on your specific needs.
You may also decide to track a few common SEO metrics. Instead of tracking all the things all the time, I recommend focusing on a specific problem. Track the metrics that help to solve that problem.
