Shopify SEO Roundup #4 – Quizzes, Copywriting, and Questions

July 31, 2020 in Monthly Roundup, Shopify SEO

Welcome to the fourth post of my monthly “Shopify SEO Roundup” series!

Every month, I curate a digest of the most interesting posts I’ve come across in the last four weeks.

These can be simple blog posts or articles, infographics, and even podcasts, as long as they deal with the same topic: Shopify SEO (or SEO that can easily be applied to Shopify!).

Are you a Shopify merchant with a high interest in SEO, but no time to read the mass of posts out there?

This digest sorts the good from the bad—and the great from the good.

If you want to be part of the roundup next month, or you’ve just read a great piece I should know about, please send me the content (over at nathan@taptimize.com) and I will include it in the next roundup!

In this month’s digest, we’re gonna be looking at some lesser-known SEO techniques that can help you increase your shop’s click-through rate, engagement and session duration.

All of these metrics have a significant impact on your SEO and shouldn’t be ignored.

It all makes sense: a user who spends a lot of time on your site sends strong signals to search engines that your shop is worth checking out.

Without further ado, let’s check out the top posts for this month!
