1. Avoid duplicate content
Create original content for your product pages – DO NOT use supplier content.

A low quality page is one that offers little value to the end user. For example it has just a few lines of text.
3. Social buttons
Have interactive social buttons on every product page.

Use as many different technologies as possible at your disposal and optimize for each one. Using video, content and images can increase your online visibility, site stickability.
5. Logical navigation
Make sure your navigation allows the search engines to find all your pages, don’t just leave it up to your site map.
6. Consolidate URLs
Ensure pages are not duplicating by having multiple URL access points (for example mywebsite.com/ mypage and mywebsite.com/mypage.html)
7. Attractive design
Ensure your design is attractive – this helps build visitor trust, inbound links to stick and helps to convert more users into sales.
8. Avoid keyword stuffing
Don’t try to stuff every possible search phrase for each product into your product page titles – it will have a negative effect. Use natural titles that include the main words/phrase for that page.
