7 Best Tips for Web Developers When Coding for Ecommerce Websites

1. Choose a suitable programming language

Javascript

Source

Python

Java

2. Optimize the source code for SEO

3. Focus on metadata

Meta titles

<meta name="title" content="Bags by O bag | Create your bag and customize it online"/>

Meta description

<meta name="description" content="The iconic and inimitable modular bag that can be carried by hand, shoulder or cross-body. Choose the accessories that best suit your style: handles, shoulder straps, edging and inner bags."/>

Alt tags

Source

4. Avoid duplication

5. Include canonical tags for similar product pages

  • Use rel=“canonical” link tag on HTML pages
  • Use rel=“canonical” HTTP header
  • Use a sitemap
  • Use 301 redirects for retired URLs

What does “rel canonical” mean anyway?

6. Increase page speed

7. Update your sitemap

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<urlset xmlns="
http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9">
<url>
<loc>
http://www.shift4shop.com/about-us.html</loc>
<lastmod>2022-03-29</lastmod>
</url>
</urlset>
