Eshop development for traditional products

Bluemind Digital Marketing Services has completed the development of an eshop with traditional products of Central Greece. ERKYNA wanted to renew the old website and integrate an e-shop into the website.

Eshop development for social cooperative enterprise ERKYNA

The Social Cooperative Enterprise "ERKYNA" was initially created by six dynamic and passionate women from Livadia, full of passion for local gastronomy, in an effort to find a solution to promote employment and tackle poverty and unemployment. 

With an emphasis on local agricultural products, "ERKYNA" continues to dynamically place its products in various parts of Greece, always based on collectivity, solidarity and personal contribution and work. It is a good practice and combines in a harmonious way tradition with innovative thinking.

The construction of an eshop for the traditional products of Erkina is another important step for the promotion of the products in Greece and abroad.

The innovations we applied to the eshop construction

On site SEO is all the actions and interventions on the website in order to achieve a better position in the search engine results.

Content architecture

On each page of the ERKYNA website we applied SEO techniques so that search engines can see the content to rank it in their archives. The proper architecture and structure of the website and the eshop allows search engines such as Google to go through all pages and even with the minimum number of links from the home page to any other page of the website.

Title Tags

The title tag was adjusted to what ERKYNA is so that it properly describes the page. It is the second most important element in On Site SEO and it shows up in browsers, Google and other search engine results.

The title tag should be an accurate description of each page and helps both in search engine optimization and the overall visitor experience.

The meta description tag is the text that appears below the title in search engine results. Properly tailoring them with targeted keywords on the ERKYNA website gives it the advantage to increase click-through.
