For example, tip #2 is adding all the brands that you sell in your store.  The more brands you add to your Bridge, the more that Google can see that you sell those brands and send you customers searching for these brands.
 
2. Use Bridge's SEO Tools page. 
 
This page allows you to:
 
a. Make a list of 10 search terms for which you want to be found. Then, add these keywords to your items, your Chalks, and to your store's list of offerings in the description area.
 
b. Conact your brands and ask to be listed on their site.  This creates 'back links' to your site.
 
3. Setup domain masking for your site. This entails Bridge installing on your Bridge an SSL certificate. This helps elevate your site above others and legitimize it. It makes your content more unique, and adds SSL to it. Google gives value to both of these factors.
 
4. Add news and events to your site daily. You can do this via your Chalkboard. 
 
5. Share the news and products from your Bridge to your Facebook Page. This creates 'back links' to your site.
 
6. Ask all of your customers for reviews. Bridge includes a free review tool. Reviews increase click thru to your site, and they provide great content for Google to crawl.
