Welcome To The Selling Lounge!

We are a friendly forum where sellers help sellers to help our/your online E-Commerce Business grow by having a place of resources and support along with help in promoting ourselves and each other.

I have been selling on line since 2003 in which I started out with eBay where I was doing very well as a Powerseller until all the fee hikes and changes. I then opened up my first Website almost 2 years ago and have been a member of a few very nice informative E-Commerce Forums and have learned so much about this new world of online selling that I wanted to have all my information in one place to help me succeed and by doing that helping others at the same time.

I have noticed that there is a ton of information out there on the net to help us become successful business owners and there are certain things that we must do in order to get our products out there and noticed and to get the buyers to us.

So I'm hoping that we can all share with each other "our tips" of "what works" and "what does not work".

I need help getting on search!

There are many reasons why buyers are not finding us, but I will start off with the Basics.

Make sure you have your TITLE, META NAME DESCRIPTION, & META KEYWORDS on your site.
This goes after:


  • From time to time you need to be fortunate to get a lot of traffic from search engines. You can greatly influence how much traffic you get from Google and the other search engines. Your Title should be clear using descriptive keywords of your site and something that your customers are trying to find on search.

  • Make sure that you use DESCRIPTIVE keywords in describing your site and your products! Google likes no more than 250 characters in your meta name description area.

  • Make sure that you are using keywords that your potential buyer is going to type into search to look for your items. Google likes no more than 250 characters in your meta keywords area.

A Secret:
Do a search on your items and type in things you think that your customers would type in to find you. Take a look at the top sites that pop up on search. Do a "VIEW PAGE SOURCE"! Look at all of their Title's, Meta Descriptions, & Meta Keywords. Then go to their sites and look at the titles and descriptions of the product.

You can usually find out why your items aren't showing up in search on the first page and theirs are. Now keep in mind this is just one reason.
