Does anyone have experience in boosting a personal art website who is trying to sell paintings for the wall? Around $200-1000 price range a piece. Any kind of keyword I am trying to use, is automatically destroyed by overstock, Etsy, Pinterest, etc.
If you keep looking for may find some lower competition keywords to go for.
I wouldn’t give up just because the top results are bigger sites like that. You may be able to outrank them by having better optimized content.
I outrank big e-commerce sites when it’s just some category page with little content and just a list of items, without needing a ton of links, just from better content that I took the time to optimize.
