After you’ve read the above article, we’d also like to invite you to post your SEO-related questions this week (until Friday AEST) right here in the forums. Kate will be dropping-by each day to help answer any questions you may have. Fire away!
We’re currently pushing our changelogs into the item’s description page. They’re wrapped into pre tags and for a while i thought hey, i’d better add a ton of this stuff, maybe it’ll help for SEO. Noticed it didn’t actually. Is there any known indexing restriction for such content wrapped in these tags? Would you recommend dropping them into an external source rather than filling up the page?
PS: As a platform feature request, would be great to have a Changelog tab for items.
While text content is much better than images, for indexing purposes; in terms of “item description page / landing page”, images seem to be more compelling though. For improving SEO, do you think it’s better to drop images in favor of text content?
PS: Another platform feature request, it would be great to have more freedom to add content (eg: some CSS here and there). I’ve used tables and they’re not quite ok. Or instead of freedom, a CSS toolkit/framework for authors to use internally for item description would be great.
What are the best html tags to use, to highlight the keywords. (i.e. li, em, b, strong whatever else?). Does it make any sense using them?
How many keywords/keyphrases and their variations per item page should I use to have more convertions?
The themeforest’s item search algorithm has changed recently, right? all the previous item description changes are not that valuable as I see… Would you mind giving a few more hints like best practices
Great question @sightsignal! We don’t have any plans to offer https image hosting at this time but we’ve certainly investigated the pros and cons (cost admittedly being one of the downsides) but because of the importance, we wanted to provide the information so that those wishing to optimize effectively, have the opportunity to do so.
Re: 1) More information in text form is a great thing for both users and search engines. I wouldn’t add it for the sake of adding it though - make sure it’s helpful information. I’d suggest change logs are but I wouldn’t add them to the top of your item description.
Re: 2) Research shows that images aren’t necessarily more compelling for users or search engines. This piece of recent research into ranking factors states that ‘Content with at least one image significantly outperformed content without any images. However, we didn’t find that adding additional images influenced rankings.’
Apart from your page title (title tag), meta description and heading mark ups (in the case of items is your item name) there aren’t any HTML tags that will highlight keywords for the benefit of search engines. If you’d like to use markups like li, em, b, strong etc. be sure that they’re being used for the benefit of your users.
There is no guide to volume of keywords/key phrases or variations per item page. Search engines, particularly Google, are only interested in useful content. Always provide useful, descriptive information that helps your users.
Much like Google, the Envato websites search algorithm is also a secret so that the searches are fair to all authors.
Hello! On the website Envato incorrectly configured rel=canonical. As a result of searching out duplicates. The website creates a user page on audiojungle and themeforest and other markets. Example: my userame can be seen not only on audiojungle, but also on other markets:
And all those shots are in the Google index.
In the end this leads to poor ranking of many authors in the Google search. This problem is easily solved. Sorry for my English!
