SEO tips for Magento

We often hear that Magento is the most SEO friendly ecommerce software. However, it’s quite difficult to find comprehensive Magento SEO tutorials.

We’ve already told you about the most informative Magento SEO guide that is available on Yoast.com.

Today I’d like to introduce other sites that provide tips on Magento SEO.

Siteground.com gives a short advice, still very useful:

The Search Engine Optimization for Magento can be enabled through the script admin area -> System -> Configuration -> Web -> Search Engines Optimization.

Below is a list of 6 more sites to visit for Magento SEO tips. Hope you’ll find them useful for your experience with Magento.

If you know other sites that provide information on Magento SEO, please share in comments.

Need links to your Magento site?

Is your site powered by Magento eCommerce? Do you make everything possible to get links to your site and increase its visibility? If yes, then I have good news for you.

I won’t tell you that links are very important in terms of SEO. I think you already know it. I’ll tell you what site provides free links to Magento stores. The site I’m speaking about is BlastedThing.com.

When you just enter BlastedThing.com you see a welcoming banner saying “Got a Magento site? We want to link you”. This means nothing except they offer you a free link!

By clicking the banner you’ll be taken to Submission page where you’ll be asked to enter some basic information like your site title, URL and etc.

So what are you waiting for? Go and add your site to a SEO friendly Magento Directory. It’ll definitely help your site rank better!
