At time of writing, this fantastic article by Loren Baker on international SEO for ecommerce is 6 hours old. It’s actually a summary of a SEJ eSummit presentation by Aleyda Solis, International SEO and Founder at Orainti.
It covers international SEO specifically for three ecommerce platforms: WooCommerce, Shopify, and Magento.
The author goes into detail on the benefits of using various URL structures for other languages and markets (which we also cover in our ebook on URLs).
