This is where AlphaRank comes into play, a powerful SEO tool designed to boost your store’s visibility and drive organic traffic. Let’s dive into a step-by-step guide on how to leverage AlphaRank for your Shopify store.

Getting Started with AlphaRank

Firstly, log into your Shopify store’s admin panel and navigate to the ‘Apps’ page. Click on ‘Visit Shopify App Store’ and search for AlphaRank. Once found, click ‘Add app’. Alternatively, you can visit AlphaRank’s official website and use the provided link to install it directly to your Shopify store. Of course, if you need guidance or have any questions, you’re welcome to reach out to our customer service team. They’ll happily assist you with downloading and installing AlphaRank, ensuring you get started on your SEO journey smoothly and efficiently.

After installing AlphaRank, follow the prompts to configure the initial settings. Now you’re ready to explore the powerful SEO functionalities that AlphaRank offers! Let’s break down these features and how to use them effectively.

Navigating the Home Button in Shopify’s Backend

Upon clicking the home button in the Shopify backend, you’ll encounter three key data metrics: Google SEO Score, Page Indexed Rate, and Keyword Ranking.

Google SEO Score

AlphaRank automatically diagnoses your website’s current SEO score focusing on technical aspects like site architecture and loading speed. For a detailed explanation of this feature, click the adjacent “?” button. The score is available for both desktop and mobile versions—switch by clicking the small button at the top right (desktop scores are displayed by default).

Eager to resolve issues and improve your score?

Click the purple button below the score for automatic optimizations. AlphaRank will also display problems prompting manual enhancements. For a fully automated SEO experience encompassing technical to content generation, opt for the ‘SEO Fully-Hosted Service’ and let AlphaRank handle the optimization. Just review the daily reports and make strategic adjustments as needed—especially recommended for busy entrepreneurs or SEO novices.

You can track the evolution of your SEO score over time. Click ‘Return to the Original’ to view previous scores, while the top of the panel displays how much your score has improved against the original benchmark.

Page Indexed Rate

The Page Indexed Rate displays the percentage of your website that’s been indexed by Google, a crucial metric for SEO success. By clicking the “?” button next to it, you can delve into a detailed explanation of this feature. Below the score, you’ll find recommendations for enhancing your site’s SEO. For immediate improvements, hit the purple button to execute one-click optimizations and you can also view a comparison of your score before and after the changes.

Keyword Ranking

The Keyword Ranking feature zeroes in on your site’s standings for specific keywords, which are critical influencers in the world of SEO. Given their impact, it’s essential to monitor how you rank on the digital leaderboard. Keep in mind, though, that Google takes some time to crawl and index new content, so if you’re logging in for the first time, AlphaRank will alert you that syncing with Google Search Console may cause a slight delay for newly linked stores. Don’t worry—patience is just part of the SEO journey.

In the meantime, AlphaRank doesn’t leave you hanging; it offers tailored suggestions for boosting your rankings. And for a quick lift, you can hit the purple button for one-click optimization to streamline your climb up the search results ladder.

Content Optimization Features

After exploring the three core data features on the home page, let’s delve into the content optimization capabilities starting with the blog generation feature. Yes, AlphaRank harnesses the power of its robust algorithmic team to auto-generate SEO-enhanced blogs for you. What sets AlphaRank apart from its competitors is its ability to tailor content specifically to your product features, website style, and page characteristics, crafting blogs that are uniquely yours.

Initially, AlphaRank conducts an automatic recognition of your website and products. Then, through multiple rounds of interaction, it hones in on your specific needs. If you’re not satisfied with the keyword selections AlphaRank provides, you have the freedom to enter your preferred keywords. Based on these keywords, AlphaRank will generate a variety of blog titles for you to choose from. Once you’ve selected a title that resonates with you, it then crafts a detailed blog outline, incorporating the chosen keywords and title.

But the customization doesn’t stop there. You can add relevant links, select the blog’s language, and specify the target customer’s country or the blog’s intended market. This level of personalization ensures the final blog meets your requirements and packs a potent SEO punch. Experience this powerful feature and elevate your content strategy to the next level!

Tailored SEO for Product & Collection Pages

Beyond blog content, AlphaRank takes it a step further by optimizing your product collections and detail pages—key areas that can significantly boost your site’s traffic and product visibility, leading to a higher volume of orders. If you haven’t opted for the fully managed SEO mode, AlphaRank provides actionable recommendations for manual optimization, empowering you to fine-tune your pages for peak performance.

However, for those seeking a more hands-off approach, the option to try the SEO Fully-Hosted feature is a game-changer. With this service, AlphaRank takes the wheel, driving your SEO forward with expert precision. And if you ever feel the need to make changes or regain direct control, a simple click of a button allows you to pause the fully managed service, giving you the flexibility to tailor your SEO strategy to your evolving business needs.

Daily Optimization Reports

Just below your product category pages, or ‘Collections’, AlphaRank provides a daily SEO optimization report. This report showcases vital data reflecting the current performance and potential areas for improvement. You can use this data to make informed decisions and tweak your SEO strategy for better results. And should you have any questions or need assistance, our customer support team is just a message away, ready to help you optimize your store to its fullest potential.
