Thanks for continuing to do these helpful podcasts/zoom sessions.  I'd like to see more information about using Instagram -- a lot of artists are using this to sell their work and connect with new/current customers.  Thanks!

I try to listen to this podcast live but for some reason, I can never be able to do it because my phone does want work with the link. It was good information. I wish you did one in marketing.

Oh, Patty! So cool ... great job! You should be proud. 

Comment by Connie Mettler on May 14, 2020 at 2:34pm

It should not. Google should find you, especially if the incoming links go directly to your home page domain name, because that is how google finds you. Lots of qualifiers though.

I've really enjoyed learning about website building and SEO from your podcasts, and I am proud to announce that I now have a website up and running!! It's all thanks to you, Connie, that I conquered my tech fears and my photography fears and did it.

Hi,  will the google ranking change if I move my domain name from the current company to, let’s say, Go Daddy?

Comment by Barrie Lynn Bryant on May 14, 2020 at 12:05pm

I will have to listen later. I can probably learn plenty from hearing just what gets answered that has already been asked. Thanks a million, Connie and Scott, for doing this!

Thanks for these questions. Scott will address them on the podcast. Keep them coming!

Several questions....
1. I have a custom site that was developed 8 years ago on the OScommerce platform. There’s so much Shopify out there now but I am not switching. Is SEO different based on the platform?
2. I have read that image file names should be more than my product earring. Should it be more descriptive?
3. If I want to start examining my SEO, what should I concentrate on first...content (product descriptions), keywords, image names, something I haven’t even thought of.
4. What are your thoughts on services that generate product descriptions? I realize that tweaking is necessary. I make jewelry.
5. If I want to educate myself more on SEO, what should I be reading? Webinar, podcast, book etc.

This is great. I took an SEO course recently and was able to increase my traffic. I did it myself - it's not really too difficult, but I'm fairly web savvy & resourceful.

Donna had a great question. I would say you will probably want to hold onto your domain name and recreate as many of your pages as possible on the new Shopify platform - especially your best performing pages.

Weird domain suffixes aren't going to hurt you from an SEO standpoint. But your customers may have more trouble remembering one of those.
