Hi Team,

Do you have any basic tips on how to drive traffic to my online store? I have created a facebook fanpage, got small twitter following but I am still confused as to how they use google tools.

Any ideas?

Hi Kmagnet,

Which Google tool are you referring to in particular? Kindly specify so we can point you towards the right direction.

There are two ways to drive traffic into your SaleHoo Stores store or any website in particular - through SEO and PPC.

SEO (search engine optimization) basically involves link building and optimizing your product pages into search engine-friendly (keywords-based) content. Basically, the more backlinks you have from other related sites, the better. I would recommend our very own Link hidden: Login to view software. Get your free SEO software by visiting www.traffictravis.com One really great tool you can use once you have your own Traffic Travis software is the link finder tool which helps you find websites where you can put your backlinks.

PPC or Pay Per Click advertising, through Google AdWords is an affordable and highly effective way to pull more buyers to your store and Alice has a really informative blog on how you can use this tool to its optimum - Link hidden: Login to view

Another thing you might also want to do an extra effort on is how you write your product/listing titles as well as your product descriptions. Copying them off your dropshipper's site may seem like the easy and fast way to do it but will that really help bring traffic to your store as well as increase your sales? Remember that a Link hidden: Login to view helps you get more traffic, while a good description gives people the confidence to click Buy!

Hope this helps! All the best :)

If your site/store is focused on just the one topic/product - create a news section and update it daily - and consider providing other online services over and above just an online store. Google will place a higher ranking on your site if it contains more pages discussing a particular topic.

2ndly - Post new, interesting and useful things to both twitter and FB - hammer them but don't spam. If you create your news section then post links with enticing intros...

Hope that helps.
:)
