    These points mentioned above are really great!
    I would want to add another point, each image of the product must have 4-5 describing the products. A customer must know as to why? he should buy your product & the new things that your product offers that your competitors don’t.

    I prefer to take breaks throughout my site to allow people the option to browse before they buy. Our link strategy so far is a dud.

    I’ve got the idea alright of how you need a niche market, a product within that market and traffic to get to your website to sell that product but we need to know – Should I pay for SEO mentoring to create my e-commerce website because I seem too overwhelmed by it all? It is so hard to operate an online webstore.

    There is an issue together with the site that uses magento to sell products, this is a slow platform.

    A powerful way to increase e-commerce sales is to optimize individual pages. I had just given this to a colleague who was doing an seo analysis on creating linkable product pages.

    The original version of our ecommerce site for sunglasses were designed specifically to provide maximum search engine rankings, but we found that this degraded the user experience. All early versions of our site were nightmares to actually use, which did not help sales.

    this is interesting to know how to optimize individual ecommerce pages but we are getting killed by amazon.com.
