OOH LA LA SEO GUIDELINE
These are the main issues occurring weekly on the site right now. I am fixing them as they occur but it would be good to get a handle on it internally as well. I have made some detailed rules to follow here that may help.
BLACK = Google's Issue
BLUE = The solution
Each screenshot under the issue is exactly where to fix/adjust when creating the new products/pages.
1. Google does not like ALL CAPS in the meta data. Please refrain from using ALL CAPS when creating content.
URL TOO LONG: The URL should be around 55-65 characters in total.
The URL below is too long and exceeds the limits per Google.
Here is where you can edit/fix this in the Shopify admin:
MISSING DESCRIPTION: Descriptions should be between 100-250 characters. An average of 200 is good. They should also include good keyword driven content.
DESCRIPTION TOO SHORT: The descriptions should be over 100 characters at their shortest.
TITLE TOO SHORT: The title should be 50-70 characters and contain high level keywords.
DUPLICATE CONTENT: No 2 pages (collections, products, pages, blog posts) should have the same title, url or description.
TITLE TOO LONG: The title should be 50-70 characters and contain high level keywords.
DESCRIPTION TOO LONG: Descriptions should not go over 250 characters in length.
