    Updating your pages


    Hi everybody. My question is this. Im trying to get from page 1 to page 2 on one of my particular guitar brands. I understand that doing little updates can help push you up a notch. What do you advise that I do... add youtube vids? More informative text? Rewriting my content a little bit to mix it up a bit??

    Any input is sure appreciated. Thanks!!

    You want to go from page 1 to page 2?
    Are you dyslexic?

    Hi Brendan,
    If you are selling a product like guitars online, I doubt that frequent page changes are a useful or relevant SEO tactic.

    I'd pay more attention to providing different pages of info for the different types of clients seeking your products. Eg:

    • The different types of guitars: acoustic, 12 string, jazz, hand-made, etc., etc.
    • Then there may be brand searches...
    • Where does your location figure in importance for your target audience?

    A Google search should tell you if it thinks location is an important factor.

    Hope this hleps. (My bda. My dyslexic son made me say this.)

    We are more of a destination location due to the fact that 80% of our business is done on line. We have a show room in Las Vegas but location isn't a huge factor since we're carrying very high end instruments that nobody else in Vegas has.

    Having looked at your site... your page with the vid's and the 1 line captions... they are not providing enough content....

    I will use this 1 liner for example ....Renaissance Guitar played by Lindsey Buckingham

    This brings up a search results where you are on page #2. It is to brief with the text content. .... also you are using Iframes... not the best way to do things... but sometimes you have to do what you have to do to get the info up on the page.

    I would create more text content around each vid. Pretend the Vid is a picture, and treat it the same way. Meaning that the surrounding text will have a positive effect. So you could for example...

    "Here is a Renaissance Guitar, one of our most popular bands that we sell. This one played by Lindsey Buckingham, sounds great. You can purchase your choice of Renaissance guitars here. "

    Now I know even this is brief, it's just an off the hip suggestion, but you would link "Renaissance Guitars Here" to the appropriate page on your site. I think you get the point I am making... add more text content around each vid. You may even want to go so far as giving each brand of guitar you sell its' own vid page if it turns out well, if done correctly, I see no reason for it to seen as a doorway page.

    Now if any of those vid's display folks playing the exact instrument they purchased from you... , you could capitalize on that too. I personally would love to purchase a used Fender that was strung for a left-handed player back in the sixties. I wonder how much that would be worth today. I probably couldn't afford it .. LOL

    Very well analyzed and explained by Pro members. I would like to add one more point that may help you build good content easily.
    Crowdsource your content creation - but audit it before publishing.
    If you find writing content for each product page difficult launch a scheme or offer where you can ask your users (existing clients + site visitors) for inputs like "Tell us how do you plan to use this Renaissance guitar and get a Chance to win this Guitar FREE".
    I mean, something like that. I know, obviously one would use a guitar to play music. LOL.
    But, do not post the user input directly without audit. It will open the pandora's box of spam and you may land in more trouble than benefits.
    You can collect these user inputs and use them to add a content block latter like -
    "Ten awesome things our buyers are doing with Renaissance Guitar". or "Advantages of Renaissance Guitar as per our buyers"
