SEO Tools

I recommend using an SEO tool like Ahrefs, SEMrush, and Google Search Console to optimize for search engines. These SEO tools can analyze backlinks, traffic, and content.


When optimizing your listing, it's important to optimize for people, not the Google Algorithm. So always keep in mind adding value to the reader.

Search Engine Optimization can be difficult to learn, especially if it's just for one listing. It might be a good idea to hire an SEO expert to help you with the optimization process.
