Important SEO measures for your JTL Shop

  • Page indexing (index/follow)
  • Page title

  • Link building(link popularity), such as through
    • Wikipedia
    • Google My Business
    • Entry in directories / directories

The goal of offpage optimization is to achieve higher popularity for the JTL store. The fastest way to achieve this is through good products and good content. The more websites link back to your JTL store, the higher the awareness, reputation or visibility.

How is your JTL store found?

Control with the tools at your disposal how your JTL store is found. A good option is the Google Search Console, but also paid tools like Xovi, Sistrix or Searchmetrics.

Search engine optimization begins during the development of the online store. You should do a keyword research and optimize your JTL store for selected keywords even before the design, hosting and going live of the JTL store.

What is your target group really looking for? With the help of a keyword research you will find out. With various tools, such as the Google Keyword Planner, you can determine which keywords (search terms) end consumers use to search the Internet and also how often this happens on average, for example, via www.google.de.

Page title and page description in JTL Shop

The metadata in JTL store, title tag and meta description are very important onpage factors and important JTL SEO measures. In the page title(title tag) the keyword chosen for the particular page should never be missing, as well as in the page description(meta description). The content of a meta description, among other things, is not directly used by Google in the ranking calculation of a website. A perfect meta description is mostly in the eye of the beholder, or the searcher, as for them the meta description is a first indicator about the content of the web page. However, when your JTL store is displayed on a search results page (SERP), the click-through rate (CTR) is an important success factor.

JTL Images SEO

A professional product presentation is part of a serious online business, images must therefore not be excluded from the JTL SEO optimization. Just like text, images can be optimized for search engine friendliness.

Use your own images

In order to be rated as high as possible, it is important that the uploaded images are unique and of high quality. To stand out from competitors and rivals, it is important to use self-produced images of the products and not to resort to the manufacturer’s images.

Adjust image size

In addition, the size of the images also has an impact on the search engine ranking. An optimal image is at least 300,000 pixels in size and has an edge length of at least 600 pixels. Nevertheless, you should pay attention to the file size of the images, as this may have a negative impact on the loading times of the JTL store.

Adjust image size

It goes without saying that the file names of the images used should be as short and meaningful as possible. If it cannot be avoided and several words are to be strung together, it is advisable to separate them with a hyphen; all words should always be written in lower case.

However, Google and Co. are not able to read images, so it is a good idea to add alt attributes to the images. The respective image should be described precisely and contain relevant keywords. This also allows search engines to see what is on the images and include this information in their indexing. The Alt attribute assignment can be found in the JTL Shop under: Storefront > Images > Settings.
