Product optimisation is very important when it comes to e-commerce SEO. If you fail to pay necessary attention to your product page, you will have issues with conversion. And that means no sales!

In this post, I am going to show you everything you need to optimize your product page and tips to increase conversion.

Before we even  dive in, let know what product pages are..

In a layman understanding, we can say; it is a page that describes a product.

That's absolutely right! But there is more to it. product pages does not only describe a product, they sell the products itself.

An ecommerce product page should provide details such as:

1. Relevant Product Title
2. Price Of Product
3. Features And Components Of Product
4. Built Material Of Product
5. Information About The Brand
6. Size, Dimensions, Capacity, Specifications
7. Warranty Agreement
8. Care and maintenance instructions

Each of these elements is as important as the other.

Most businesses focus on improving their carts and checkout pages hoping it brings them sales, not knowing that majority of customers don’t even get up to that point. Simply because the product page is a mess!

If you truelly want to record good sales by the end of the month, focus your attention on your pages! That's the simple truth because that's how your customers  gets convinced.

How to optimize a product page to increase sales

1. Use impressive product photos.

Did you notice that when ever you step into a shop to buy a product, let's say you want to buy a cellular phone. First thing they will do is give you sample of what they have in stuck!

They do that to let you feel what you want to buy, and be more convinced.

It is not always like that in Ecommerce shops. No one gives you a sample, rather they give you images. Here, photos speaks for the product.

Your product Images can make customers want to read your product page, it can also turn them away depending on what kind of image you provide!

Pay attention to your product images.

Tips: how to use Images the right way!

1. Showcase your products images from different angles - 66.61% of online shoppers prefer to see multiple photos of products before they can decide if to buy or not.

Preferably, You can include a 360-degree shot or a video that shows all of the important features of a product.

2. Use high quality images - while taking a product photo, use a high resolution camera. Mobile phones will awesome cameras can also be used, provided it can take a clear visioned images.

Make sure you use a clear background. Many of us prefer to use white or lite background while taking a product photo shot.

2 write detailed product description.

I believe you know the importance of product description. One of the merits of e-commerce over walk-in shops is that you don't have to hold back customers to speak to them over and over trying to convince them!

With a page full of information, you can be able to convince millions of customers!

88% of customers view detailed product description as being extremely important.

Make sure your product  description is SEO ready too! Use the right keywords within the description, preferably at the first paragraph, in the 'alt' tags, in the 'h2' tags, and any other four places within your product description.

With that, You can drive a lot of traffic (organic) to your Ecommerce shop from search engines.

How to write a killer product description.

  1. Keep your product descriptions short but it must contain all the necessary information about the product.
  2. Optimize the content for your product page keyword.
  3. Use a clear structure, headings, and bullet points to improve readability.
  4. Include product features and specifications.

3. Collect Reviews and Ratings from Customers

Tips for writing a product page that converts

Buying products from online shops for some people is risky, that's why you need to build trust!

Reviews and ratings build trust. And when there is trust, conversion increases. 85% of customers including myself, read customer reviews of products before making decisions if to buy or not.

Whether good or bad review, you should not worry too much about them. A healthy ratio of positive and negative reviews helps customers believe that they are genuine.

All you need to do is encourage  customers who previously bought your product to drop a review on the product they purchased.

If they don't have much to say, they should at least rate your product on a scale of 1 to 5.

How to collect reviews and ratings

Depending on the platform on which your shop is built, there are different ways to enable ratings and reviews on Ecommerce stores. But let's talk about woocommerce.

Reviews and ratings are built in functions of woocommerce. No additional plugin is required, but you need to turn it on to start collecting reviews.

To enable review on woocomerce do this:

  • On the admin dashboard, Click "Woocomerce" > "settings" > "Products" > "General".
  • Scroll Down till you see "Reviews Settings" and then turn it ON or OFF

4. Optimize for mobile 

You should not even give it a second thought! Mobile traffic is beating desktop traffic on a triple scale. 

As of 2017, 82% of the United States shoppers did their shopping using mobile 📱 devices. And 32% of them are mobile only shoppers. 

Again, in 2018, Google announced the mobile-first indexing which means, pages that are not mobile friendly may suffer in search index. 

If your page is mobile friendly, customers will be able to shop from anywhere they are. 

More preferably, develop a mobile app for your Ecommerce shop. 

5. Use clear call-to-action

Don't keep customers confused! If you want them to buy, state it clearly.

 Call-To-Actions tells customers what to do next. One of the reasons why customer don't buy your product is simply because they don't know how to place oder!


Page optimization is very necessary If you want to succeed in your internet business.

A product page should contain every necessary information about the products it talks about. Don't worry how long it takes you to put it down, just make sure everything is okay.
