About the Project

  • Niche: Online store for wedding, bride, and bridesmaid accessories.
  • Promotion Region: Australia
  • Promotion Period: November 2022 – February 2023

In the Australian digital marketplace, an online store was focused on wedding-related products such as bridal wear and bridesmaid essentials. The store was looking for a trustworthy marketing partner specializing in SEO for wedding stores to help it establish a strong presence in the market.

With a clear focus on growing visibility in Google searches through smart SEO strategies, the store aimed to attract more organic traffic and conversions. Additionally, it desired to enhance profitability through clever inbound marketing services.


The Challenge

We faced a strong adversary – many aggregators dominating the search engine results pages (SERP), fiercely competing for the coveted top positions. Amidst this fierce competition, our website stood at a disadvantage with its lackluster structure and incomplete content. Over 20% of our offerings lay hidden in the shadows, devoid of descriptions and high-quality visuals, leaving us vulnerable in the battle for online visibility and customer engagement.


Execution/Optimization Process

Analysis of the website, technical audit, and analysis of the competition.

Our WooCommerce SEO agency conducted a comprehensive analysis of the website:

  • We started by performing a complete technical audit, revealing several bugs hindering the website’s ranking. We also identified duplicate pages and issues with usability that needed to be addressed.
  • Next, we analyzed the website’s competitors and the top-ranking websites on the search engine results page (SERP). Based on our findings, we identified eight factors that could help improve the website’s ranking.
  • Furthermore, we researched the niche extensively and conducted a competitive analysis. We developed a comprehensive promotional strategy to boost the website’s visibility and ranking using the data gathered.

Optimizing an online store for YMYL (Your Money or Your Life) with wedding SEO

It’s important to note that optimizing commercial pages for search engines involves more than just regular content optimization. Commercial ranking factors should also be taken into account for better results.

Google’s EAT (Expertise, Authority, Trust) algorithm requires websites to provide comprehensive information on payment methods, delivery, purchase, returns, privacy policies, offers, rules, and conditions. Since online stores fall under the YMYL (Your Money Your Life) category, we have developed these crucial pages as part of our B2B SEO service strategy to boost the site’s rankings.

The following pages are the most important ones that we have developed:

  • Delivery
  • Return Policy
  • Payment
  • Size Chart
  • Terms and Conditions
  • Privacy Policy

Optimize product cards and catalog

We have enhanced the catalog filters and product listing configuration as part of our eCommerce SEO services. Initially, 20% of the products lacked clear names, descriptions, photos, and videos. However, we have been able to expand the catalog and optimize the product cards, ensuring they are fully optimized to attract and engage potential customers.

Analysis of the site navigation and the user behavior

During our audit, we discovered several issues with how pages were linked on the site. To address these issues, we installed Hotjar and conducted a user behavior analysis. This helped us identify areas where the site’s design was weak. As a result, we were able to refine the design of the main menu, search bar, breadcrumbs, and site footer.

Work with categories and keywords

We have redesigned the navigation structure with categories, subcategories, filters, and product cards for easy access.

Off-Page SEO

We focused on building external links to improve our keyword positions and increase our Domain Rating (DR) and overall trust. We had the necessary contact information and went through all the local directories and thematic forums to achieve this. Our other efforts were aimed at getting outreach links from websites where our target audience is present.
