Ad360 hits 250 monthly clicks from Google!

Ad360 just received a new badge from Google highlighting the fact that we got 250 clicks in 28 days from search traffic!

That’s the 1st time we get that many clicks – almost 10 per day!

What’s even more striking is that we had gotten our previous badge, the 100 clicks highlight, in mid-May 2022.

Considering we started producing regular content on the website in January 2022, it means it took us 5 months to reach 100 monthly clicks, but only one month and a half then to more than double this record!

Here is our secret: regular content production!
Almost every day (from Monday to Friday; in our experience posts on Saturday and Sunday get less traffic), we publish a new article in this blog to provide tips to business owners, to help them with online sales, website tips, Search Engine Optimization (SEO) knowledge, advertising and marketing best practices, e-commerce news review, and much more.

We also regularly publish content in our YouTube channel ‘Ecommerce Success by Ad360’ to help you and your business succeed.

    How we got 200 subscribers on YouTube

    We’re proud to announce today that our YouTube channel, ‘Ecommerce Success by Ad360’ just hit 200 subscribers!

    Thank you very much to all our subscribers and the persons who support the channel growth by regularly liking and commenting under the videos!

    Sure, 200 subscribers is not a lot. By most standards, we’re still a very small YouTube channel. But considering we had 0 subscribers at the beginning of the year, it’s a great progress!

    What’s more interesting is that the growth pace is accelerating for the YouTube channel: whereas it took us 4 months to get from 0 to 100 subscribers, it only took 2 months to get to 200.

    Whereas we used to get around 1 new subscriber a day on average, we’re now getting 2 or 3 subscribers quite frequently.

    This means that the growth rate tends to accelerate the more followers you have. This means that consistency and perseverance are key factors to grow on YouTube (at least for small channels like ours talking about niche topics like how to improve online sales for your e-commerce website on Shopify or WooCommerce).

    We will regularly keep you informed of our progress, and share our learnings along the way, hoping that you get valuable lessons from it! If you haven’t already, we strongly recommend you start producing video content for your brand. This is key to attract new traffic in 2022, as Google will continue favoring video content more and more in the future.

    If you haven’t already, we’d be delighted if you joined us on this journey by liking the video and subscribing to our channel.

    We publish several videos a week on E-Commerce growth, Marketing, Advertising and Website design to help online business owners be more successful!

    Google Core Update: Video Content Wins

    Video Clips: The Key to Increasing Online Sales

    The biggest beneficiary from Google’s May 2022 Core Update appears to be any blog content with video attached to it. 

    When examining the marketing trends on social media platforms like Tik Tok, Instagram Reels, and Youtube Shorts, this makes perfect sense: people love the quick rapid-fire format of watching little video “shorts.” 

    It provides digestible amounts of information in a bite-sized format, and it complements online content beautifully by enriching the aural-visual dynamic of your website.

    source

    A Simple Strategy to Deploy Video Content

    Integrating video clips into your regular content is not as difficult as it sounds!  Like we’ve made clear, the clips can literally be as short as 15 seconds to 2 minutes.  The clips do not need to be movie-length features. 

    Instead, aim to regularly write blog posts of 200+ words, and simply attach a video summarizing or adding to the thoughts your briefly outline in your post. Make this content marketing strategy part of your daily routine.

    The key here is consistency – don’t mind if your videos don’t “go viral” right away.  The goal is to build a library of short-form videos, so when a post finally does gain traction online, customers can appreciate the conscientious of your content!

    Google Core Update: Trouble for SEO?

    Some E-Commerce Owners are Frustrated by Google Core’s Update

    It’s clear that Google’s Core Update has already affected a lot of businesses online.  While the new Search Engine algorithm just began rolling out in May 2022, some e-commerce sites reported immediately falling out of the SERP rankings for important keywords, as well as seeing a drastic drop in clicks and impressions on the site.  Take the following tips below as a starting point to improve your Google SERP ranking.

    Click here for part I of our coverage on the Google Core Update

    source
    1. Increase Posting Frequency

    The most effective way to rebuild and grow your SEO, as well as your e-commerce sites online visibility, is to begin posting more frequently on your site.  

    Did you have a blog post rocket to the top of the Google charts two years ago? That’s great, but it won’t be enough to continue thriving following the May 2022 Google Core Update. If you are staying current and up-to-date on the major trends within your industry, Google is going to be rewarding you with a boost in page ranking!

    2. Strive for Originality

    On top of that, Google will now be rewarding sites that post original content.  If you are reposting content from another site or using AI-generated content, Google is going to ding you.  Also, if the quality of the content is basically a rambling word salad, and considered not useful for users, Google will rank that lower, as well.

    Best Solution: Diversify your Traffic Generation Avenues

    Aside from posting original quality content for frequently, it’s important that e-commerce business owners use the Google Core Update as a wakeup call to not rely solely on the search engine giant for their revenue! 

    You can begin ad campaigns with Ad360 in one click that bring visibility to the entire web, meaning you get impressions from outside Google’s display network and across all apps.  On top of trying out various social media platforms, business owners can ensure that even if the Google Core Update affects their traffic from search engine’s other revenue streams and ad channels pick up the slack!

    Google Core Web Vitals matter even more

    Google Algorithms Control your SERP Ranking

    Because of its ubiquity on the market, Google holds huge influence on your e-commerce store’s visibility and viability through your site’s SERP: “Search engine results page.”  Being ranked on the first page in Google search is the aim of any successful e-commerce business, so many will research or hire experts in “Search Engine Optimization” (SEO) to do just that!

    Big News: Changes to Google’s Core Algorithm?

    After following the same guidelines for the past few years, Google has officially begun rolling out the next “Google Core” algorithm update.  While the implications of this update will not be clear for several more weeks, its important for e-commerce businesses to be aware of how Google’s Core Update could affect the visibility of their e-commerce site.

    Double-Check Your “Core Web Vital” Metrics

    Core Web Vital metrics include your site’s page speed, its response to user input, and the stability of the webpage loading across different devices.  While it’s early on, it appears sites with strong core vitals are immediately seeing a boost in traffic.  We’ve mentioned the importance of webpage speed here, so make sure you get a comprehensive website audit to check these core vitals! 

    While anecdotal, some online business owners reported seeing a 25% spike in traffic following the Google Core Update.  It appears the strong fundamentals of their “Core Web Vitals” played a role in their boosted visibility online.

    Also, it is clear that sites with original content are being boosted.  If you have AI-generated content, or have boosted the work of someone else, Google now has software that spots the duplication of content, resulting in a lower SERP for your e-commerce store.
