In a guest post for Econsultancy, web analytics and conversion optimisation specialist Ran Nir has put together a comprehensive checklist of 50 SEO tips that every internet retailer should check out.

“Normally, SEO uplift doesn’t happen overnight and it can take a long while to rank well for non-brand key terms,” Nir explains. “The rule of thumb is this: The more competition a relative term has, the harder you’ll find it to rank for the term. With that said, you’ve got to start somewhere and there at least 50 ways I can think of to improve your SEO.”

The tips are organised under ten main headings:

  • Choose your hosting provider carefully

  • Increase crawl rates because you can never get enough of Google

  • Ensure image optimisation across the site to enjoy traffic from Google image search

  • Ensure metadata optimisation to get a high level of qualified traffic

  • Content is truly king

  • Apply essential URL and coding tweaks

  • Apply essential maintenance from time to time

  • The Google PageRank issue

  • Content is king, so start blogging

  • Get more links, otherwise no one will see you
