Improve E-Commerce SEO with Google Base

Search Engine Optimization has become synonymous with Google search. But really, optimizing for any source of organic traffic can be considered SEO. One such overlooked source is Google Products Search. This site is basically a massive directory of e-commerce products. People who search this directory are often pre-sold on products and browsing for a source to purchase them. Therefore, Google Products has the potential to organically increase your store’s online revenue.
