    On-Page Text Purpose


    In the example listed below, is the main purpose of the "On-Page" text for SEO or is it more for the customers information on the products?

    While it is clear that both are accomplished by having this on-page text, I am curious as to whether it is providing more SEO benefit or more customer help pertaining to product information.

    For example:

    uscargocontrol.com/Rigging-Supplies-Hardware/Screw-Pin-Anchor-Shackles-Galvanized

    This e-commerce site uses on-page descriptions at the bottom of most of their product pages. The descriptions are usually keyword dense which leads me to believe that they have the on-page text in there more for SEO purposes then customer information.

    Thank you for your time and thoughts.

    Looks like it's been done mainly for SEO purposes but it's relevant, well written and informative so not a bad idea at all.

    Looks like it was done for both. Good content is never a bad idea even if it's named as the product descriptions.
