SEO Can Drive Mobile Commerce Sales

January 3, 2012 | mobile commerce

Online retailers are busy totaling their 2011 holiday sales, and will soon be taking that data back to their marketing teams, wondering how they can extract more sales for 2012. One channel that got attention this year, and deserves even more next year, is mobile commerce.


SEO is a key factor in making mobile commerce more profitable, for the simple reason that search engines make an online retailer more accessible to potential customers. This is one area where building an app simply won’t cut it, because unless you’re a top retail brand, your potential customers don’t know who you are. The one thing they do know – the thing that search capitalizes on – is what they want to buy from you.

To that end, I just wrapped-up a series of articles on Search Engine Land, describing some of the factors that can help a mobile storefront become more successful in SEO:
