  • to optimize for this query, we used content on the category page with query inclusion, internal relinking, blog materials, and external links.

After all, it is important for the user to understand everything about the product before he makes a purchase.
For this purpose, blog materials are also well suited, in which you can talk about the features of caring for fabrics or creating images with clothes that are offered in the online store.
