Note: Creating an account on Sellfy does not automatically boost your website traffic or make your products/online shop appear in Google.
If you're trying to find your products on Google, but aren't seeing them in the search results you might be asking why Google isn't including them.
Whether you just started selling your products online or have had an online shop for some time, understanding how Google operates can help you increase your chances to rank in their results.
Google can be a harsh environment for new online shops or anyone who does not have experience with e-commerce. So, it's worth investing some time and effort into optimizing (SEO) your online presence to get onto Google's radar.
What is SEO?
SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization, which relates to the process of optimizing your website or content to generate organic (un-paid) traffic.
When a user types in a question or string of words into Google, the search engine will "crawl the internet" to provide the user with the best and most relevant sites. They will scan the content of different websites to better understand what the site is about and display them in the results in order of relevance.
How to increase Google search results
To increase the chances of your products appearing in Google search results, you can add a link to your product to various pages that already show up in Google. For example, you can add that link to another website of yours, a forum, a blog or your social media accounts.
