#2 Wrong Audience – you’re not connecting with the right customers

#3 Social Proof – your online brand or lack there of

What Can I Do to Close More Deals?Despite what anyone may tell you, there is no magic solution for closing more deals and for the majority of retailers, search engine optimization (SEO) is not a feasible option due to high costs and the uncertainties revolving around hard to obtain results. Not to mention Google has publicly stated that their algorithm is far smarter than anyone you can afford to beat the system. So if your SEO consultant isn’t playing by the rules, you’d better watch out for the wrath of the almighty Google; you could see your search rankings disappear and your hard earned marketing dollars go down the drain.

The light at the end of the tunnel is that Google, Yahoo!, Bing, and other major search engines have collaborated on a set of best practices that webmasters and retail store business owners alike can utilize to improve their search presence. That’s right! If you follow the standards put in place by those who are most likely to refer traffic to your ecommerce website, and do it right, you will be rewarded and you might even see an increase in free traffic to go along with your well-groomed online retail store's brand!
