  14. 14. Investigate but don’t copy mistakes<br />There is a fine line, but knowledge is power.<br />Justin talked about this yesterday<br />http://dis.tl/lhPzeS<br />
  15. 15. Scrape for Optimized Places<br />The key is to focus on what sites use to optimize the page.<br />Title Tag<br />Keywords<br />Alt Tags<br />Italics<br />Bolded<br />H Tags<br />

  17. 17. Choices, Choices, Choices <br /> 1 2 3 4<br />
  18. 18. First, faceted navigation, do what?<br />Put simply, it allows people to search for a product with filters<br />Because we all hate falling in love with a dress to find out it’s not in our size, right?<br />
  19. 19. How Low Do You Go?<br />Remember that for the best indexation, you have to focus on the most important pages<br />But what variations do you index?<br />Not always necessary to index<br />Best Practice:<br />Staying within three levels if possible<br />
  20. 20. Images Site<br />
  21. 21. Check Out your Top Pages (you’ll need to filter)<br />Getting a feel for your top content getting traffic.<br />Sorry, can’t give the whole cow away.<br />Ducks are better anyway.<br />
  22. 22. Compare that with Internal Site Search<br />This will give you a look at what people can’t find. <br />Focus on those top searches that do not have a specific focus page.<br />Then check those for traffic and if your competitors have those pages.<br />

  25. 25. Use the Google Keyword Tool to scrape the page or just take a glance<br />The top results might be too generic, use your instincts to identify the best target with the most traffic.<br />
  26. 26. Boys shirts<br />Girls dresses<br />
  27. 27. Recommendation: Special Occasion<br />
  28. 28. And make a Christening and Baptism Gowns page<br />What is ranking right now is just one product, and products go away. <br />That’s position 22 … no bueno.<br />
