How do I increase organic traffic to my fashion e-commerce website and rank higher on Google?

If you run an online e-commerce website, one of the best ways to increase organic search traffic is with SEO (Search Engine Optimization). The 3 important types of SEO are Technical, On-Page and Off Page. ⁣Technical SEO focuses around how well search engine spiders can crawl your website and index your content. This includes creating a Robots.txt file which tells web robots which pages on your site to crawl and not to crawl, creating a XML sitemap, making sure your site is HTTPS, optimizing site structure and site speed. These are all important ranking factors in Google. ⁣On-page SEO is the practice of optimizing individual web pages - title tags, meta descriptions, image alt tags and header tags in order to rank higher and earn more relevant traffic in search engines. On-page refers to both the content and HTML source code of a page that can be optimized, as opposed to off-page SEO which refers to links and other external signals. Off-page SEO refers to actions taken outside of your own website to impact your rankings such as link building, submitting your website to industry directories, interlinking all social media accounts, and getting press mentions. Most importantly make sure you track your website performance with Google Analytics and Google Search Console.
