Search engine optimization has become a perquisite for every website. Now even online stores are giving high priority to search engine friendly web pages for higher rankings. It’s quite evident store managers can boost their product sale by drawing more customers to the eCommerce website.
But at times, proper keyword research fails or there may be a change in trend which affects the search queries among potent buyers.
