The Shopify SEO apps I recommend (fewer than you'd think)

Recently a JSON-LD for SEO customer was asking what other SEO apps I recommend. You can use other Shopify SEO apps but I recommend sticking with Shopify's built-in SEO features. Years ago Shopify's built-in SEO features were weak and themes didn't do a great job either. That period had Shopify...

The Low-Energy list

Last week I caught the cold. It started over the weekend, continued through the week, and finally started wrapping up the next weekend. It's safe to say that I didn't make major progress towards my 2020 goals for Repeat Customer Insights or JSON-LD for SEO. But I still made some...

Should you use many products or many variants in your Shopify store?

A JSON-LD for SEO customer was planning their product organization last week and were questioning if they should use a product for each style or if they should group them and use variants. It all depends on how different they are and how much unique content each variant of a...

Shopify apps to fast-track your way to SEO failure

A JSON-LD for SEO customer shared a screenshot of a SEO app with me. Two options caught my eye: Does "Show random product rating between 4 and 5 stars" and "All products have 5 stars" sound like something you should enable? Probably not, unless you like fake reviews and spam....

Putting the growth genie back into the bottle

One goal a lot of Shopify stores have is growth. More sales. More customers. More profit. You have to be careful with growth though... There are downstream problems that can break your company if you're not mindful of them. Did you just 5x your traffic? Great, but can your store...
