  • To rank on SERPs (search engine result pages)
  • To earn links
  • To educate an audience
  • To generate leads
  • Identify keywords and phrases that your customers use when researching your products. Then create content based on those topics.
  • Informational pages and blog posts should have at least 500 words.
  • Humans are visual creatures. Many users won’t spend a lot of time reading a bunch of website copy, so you need to grab their attention by including engaging images and videos.
  • Avoid duplicate content. If you have more than one page with the same product description, use canonical tags on those pages to prevent being penalized by search engines.
  • Shopify automatically applies a canonical URL for all URLs (products, collections, pages, and blogs), so there isn’t a risk of duplicate content in this instance. You can use Google Search Console to check for duplicate content or any crawling errors in the index coverage report.
  • This Google support document outlines ways to address duplicate content issues, and how to use canonical URLs for Google to crawl less often
  • All content on your website should be unique and written by your business.
  • For example, don’t use product descriptions from manufacturers, as this would be considered duplicate content.
