The Best Amazon SEO Tools on the Market
Amazon Search Engine Optimization is more than just picking the right keywords or showing up first in the search rankings. It’s a complex, yet necessary strategy sellers must employ as they embark upon e-commerce journeys.
Today we’ll dive into the fundamentals of Amazon SEO, why you should care, and which game-changing tools and strategies you should employ to bring consistent and meaningful traffic to your products.
So What is Amazon SEO, Anyway?
Amazon product listing optimization is the process of identifying keywords relevant to your product (that people are also searching for) and sculpting your listing in a way that enables your product to rank well in Amazon’s search engine for those keywords.
Amazon has emerged as an extremely effective advertising engine to reach customers, which is why it’s particularly vital that sellers optimize the back and front-end of their listing to the best of their ability. When we say “optimize” a listing, we’re referring to the keyword targets that sellers include within their product listing title, bullet points, description, etc. to improve their ability to rank for those keywords in Amazon’s search engine. Sellers can improve their Amazon SEO by utilizing Amazon product listing optimization tools like Listing Builder by Helium 10 to naturally weave in keyword targets within their product listing.
Why Should You Care About Amazon SEO?
Amazon search engine optimization is important for sellers because it is the best way to boost product visibility and, in turn, product sales.
When you optimize your Amazon listing, you are setting yourself apart from the competition. Through the addition of professional-looking product photography, the use of keyword research tools, and crafting keyword-rich listing content, the Amazon search algorithm will receive exactly what it needs to push your product listing to page one.
At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter how great your product is if nobody can find it. By optimizing your Amazon listing, you are giving it a prime stage on the Prime marketplace.
An important factor to keep in mind is the journey of the consumer as they search Amazon. Most Amazon shoppers simply do not venture past page one of search results when looking for a specific product. In addition, shoppers who search for products with lengthier or more detailed phrases typically have a much higher purchase intent than a shopper who searches using vague keywords.
The goal here is to make it as easy as possible for people who already want your product but can’t find it to discover you at the top of Amazon’s search results!
By including relevant, specific keywords in your listing, you are making it clear to the Amazon search algorithm that your product listing is hyper-relevant to a particular group of keywords. Being discoverable on page one increases product sales, nets more product reviews, and dramatically boosts brand awareness… all without the costly investment of traditional advertising costs.
