How ShopWired’s SEO Packages Will Help Your Business Grow

26th March 2024

Aspects of SEO written on a whiteboard

Investing in SEO for your ecommerce website is a must. A recent report found that SEO is still the most effective channel for reaching your marketing goals. Furthermore, it's also the most cost-effective method for getting your brand in front of the right audience. 

In truth, without a solid SEO strategy in place, you’re likely missing out on a significant amount of free traffic from people actively searching for your products or services. 

This post will guide you through the importance of SEO, exploring what it is and why it’s crucial to your business. We’ll also look at ShopWired’s ecommerce SEO packages, designed to boost your online visibility to help your business flourish. 

Ready to find out more? Let’s get started.

What Exactly Is SEO?

Search Engine Results Page

SEO, or Search Engine Optimisation, is the name given to a range of techniques that aim to improve your website's visibility on search engines like Google, Microsoft Bing and others. 

The more your website ranks highly in the search results, the more likely it is to gain clicks from potential customers. And with an estimated 8.5 billion searches on Google alone per day, it becomes clear why SEO should be one of your priorities. 

There are two types of SEO:

  • On-page optimisation 
  • Off-page optimisation 

Let’s take a closer look at each type: 

On-page SEO

On-page SEO encompasses all elements on your website's pages that can be optimised for search engines. This includes page titles, meta tags, content and structure. 

Central to on-page optimisation is keyword research. This process involves using special SEO tools to identify the search terms that people are searching for within your industry. For example, if keyword research indicates "eco-friendly water bottles" is a highly searched term in your industry, optimising your website's relevant pages with this keyword in titles, meta descriptions and content can help you rank for it.

Beyond written content, on-page SEO also includes factors like loading speeds and mobile responsiveness. The faster and more user-friendly a website is, the more search engines will favour it and promote it. Platforms like ShopWired are designed with SEO in mind, meaning you can focus your efforts on keywords and content without worrying about slow page speeds and maintenance issues. 

Off-page SEO

Off-page SEO focuses on activities outside your website that can boost its authority and search rankings. Off-page SEO mainly involves acquiring backlinks from other reputable websites, which act as 'trust signals', signalling to search engines that your site is a credible and valuable source of information. 

There are several techniques to help build backlinks to your website, which is known as 'link building.' Some of these include guest blogging, engaging with communities on social media and being featured in industry-related directories. Unlike on-page SEO, off-page efforts require outreach and networking to enhance your site's visibility and reputation across the web.

The Benefits of ShopWired's SEO Packages

Website Traffic Positive Trend

1. Boost Visibility

Boosting your store's visibility on search engines is crucial, and ShopWired's SEO packages are designed to do just that. Considering that less than 1% of searchers scroll to the second page of Google's results page, securing that prominent spot is essential. We'll work to improve your ranking position for the keywords that are most important to your business. 

2. Targeted Traffic

ShopWired's SEO services aim to attract not just any traffic but the right kind—visitors genuinely interested in your products or services. Just think about it, if someone is already searching online for the products you sell, it demonstrates buyer intent, making them more likely to become a paying customer. By aligning your offerings with the search queries of a motivated audience, ShopWired’s SEO services not only boost the quantity of your traffic but significantly enhance its quality, boosting your conversion rates. 

3. Competitive Edge

In the crowded online marketplace, standing out from the competition is vital. ShopWired's SEO packages help you outrank the competition to get ahead of your rivals. This can help you capture potential customers before they even see your competitors. 

4. Cost-Effectiveness

Cut costs

Unlike paid advertising campaigns that often cost thousands per month, SEO is cost-effective. That's because SEO leverages what's inherently free—your site's visibility in organic search results. Even if you invest in professional SEO services, the improvements made are long-lasting, continuing to benefit your business by attracting traffic without ongoing costs, unlike paid ads which stop the moment you cease payment.

5. Support All The Way

ShopWired's SEO packages include tailored support from our team of SEO experts. This means personalised advice and strategies tailored to your store's specific needs, ongoing optimisation efforts and detailed reporting to track your SEO campaign's success. We'll support you and your business from start to finish. 

ShopWired's SEO Packages: Helping Your Business Grow

Website Ranking Number One on Search Engine Results Page

ShopWired's SEO packages are designed to boost your online store's visibility and rankings in search engine results to gain more clicks. 

With both one-off and ongoing monthly packages, our SEO services cater to a diverse range of needs. Whether you're looking for a one-off audit of your website's current SEO performance and some tips to take with you, or ongoing optimisations implemented by ShopWired, our packages have you covered. 

Here's a breakdown of what's included in ShopWired's SEO Packages:

Keyword Research

Keyword Research

The foundation of any SEO campaign is keyword research. Keyword research identifies the search terms people are using to find the products you sell. 

Keyword research is a data-driven process, using tools like SEMRush and Google Trends. Our keyword research will focus on uncovering the most relevant and high-traffic search terms related to your products

Content Optimisation

Content truly is king when it comes to SEO. Search engines analyse each piece of content on your website and it either works for or against your website's rankings. We'll work with you to optimise the content throughout your website with a particular focus on homepage text and content across category and product pages.


Blogging is one of the most effective ways to boost your website's organic performance. That's because adding new content regularly to your website can help attract the attention of search engine bots and new customers alike. We'll work with you to determine a brand voice and tone for your blog and help to create content that's keyword-rich, engaging and relevant to your business. Not only will this boost your website's SEO, but it will also provide a more engaging experience for visitors to your website. 

Website Architecture

Your website's structure could be damaging your conversions and your search engine rankings without you even knowing. We’ll perform a full analysis of your link structure, category hierarchy and use of other navigation tools like website menus, brands and filters. 

Technical SEO

An assessment of your website's technical SEO includes looking at a wide range of onsite factors. These include H tags, sitemap and robots files, website speed, meta tags and page URLs. These are an often overlooked but important aspect of SEO. Small changes can lead to big improvements. 


One of the most important aspects of SEO is the number and quality of links pointing to your website from external websites. Each incoming link is counted as a 'vote' for your website. You can think of quality links as trust signals that tell search engines your content is good. ShopWired will seek to identify reputable and high-quality sources for backlinks that are relevant to your industry.

Data Analysis

By analysing an array of data points and metrics for your website we can judge which aspects are performing well and which need immediate attention. By collating and analysing this data, we'll create detailed reports to help you identify and understand your website's performance and how visitors interact with it. We’ll inform you of the best methods you can use to engage with your customers, and we’ll help you to understand who exactly those customers are. Armed with this information, we’ll devise a plan to help your business grow.
