Alex Melen, Co-Founder of SmartSites, spoke at Ecommerce Festival in 2022.
Alex Melen recently spoke at an Ecommerce Festival and shared best practices that he learned over the past 11 years with SmartSites. He and his brother, Michael Melen (CO-CEO & COO of SmartSites), built an ecommerce SEO agency brand that serves over 1,000 active SEO customers today.
The session, Mastering SEO For Ecommerce, took place on February 25th, 2022. SEO helps ecommerce websites rank higher in search engine results pages by increasing organic search traffic. Alex dove deep into Google's ranking signals so that audience members could better understand factors that drive rankings on both Google Maps (Local Pack) and Google Localized Organic Results.
“Billions of searches occur on Google daily, and 15 percent of these searches are unique. People think of and execute searches in different ways. Therefore, ecommerce SEO strategies need to be fluid and adaptive to ever-changing consumer behaviors,” said Alex Melen. “For example, people have been increasingly searching for nearest places to visit, trading apps, and how to support local businesses. It is important to optimize one’s online marketing strategies to meet these needs.”
