What are Meta Tags?

What Are Meta Tags?

Meta tags are snippets of text in the code on your pages that describe a page’s content; the meta tags don’t appear on your live website, only in the page’s code. Meta tags help search engines what a web page is about.

Meta tags exist in HTML, usually at the “head” of the page, and so are only visible to search engines (developers). The “meta” stands for “metadata,” which is the kind of data these tags provide – data about the data on your page.

What is Structured Data, aka Rich Snippets or Schema.org?

What are Rich Snippets and why do we want them?

Rich Snippets is a fancy term for the ability of Google, Yahoo!, and eventually others to enhance and show more information on their search results.

Google's Feed Specifications

Your Store Wizards has looked at all of Google's data specifications and we have some solutions for Yahoo! merchants who are receiving warnings about their Google feed.

Many of the specifications have already been adjusted in the Feed Wizards system.  The adjustments apply only to feeds that are not customized and do not have variants.  Any warnings that have been issued for the specifications should be resolved for these stores.

Below is a list of changes and possible solutions.  For character limitations, remember that spaces do count as characters. 

2014 SEO Strategies January, 2014

Although it is difficult to predict what Google has in mind for future updates and algorithms, many SEO experts that Google will continue to fight spam, push quality content and return high quality search results.

Holiday Tips

Have Promotions: Shoppers love promotions. They can be anything, like Buy 1 Get 1 Free, Free Shipping Over $xxx, Buy 1 Get Half Off Another (a favorite and works well).

Email Marketing: “Email newsletters are like printing money,” my marketing expert friend Jim Piampiano often says. This is true particularly around the holidays. Make sure you create an attractive newsletter and include incentives for the holidays.

How do Google’s Algorithms Determine Rank?

How Does Google Determine Quality?

Google’s algorithms use a handful of techniques such as natural language processing, page segmentation, user behavior, inbound links, machine learning, and other things; to make assumptions about the quality of content and links. Most of the time these assumptions are spot on, but it’s possible to find a great piece of content ranking very low, simply because Google is making the wrong assumption about it.

Marketplace Fairness Act

We are encouraging online retailers to get informed about the Marketplace Fairness Act and take action. The Marketplace Fairness Act authorizes states to require all sellers not qualifying for a small-seller exception (annual gross receipts not exceeding $1 million) to collect and remit sales and use taxes with respect to remote sales under provisions of the agreement.
