Typically categories are a list of brands that you offer on your site. If brands are important to your business we highly recommend adding categories. In just a couple of steps you'll be able to add categories on your site and assign products to these brands.
Log into Store Manager. Go to the Products Tab then find Categories in the side menu then click the ADD button.
Add Category (Brand) Name then hit save. You will be taken back to the main page.
Click on the Category/Brand you added and do the following:
- Check off all Sections
- Fill In Search Engine Title: Title hould be less than 60 characters and describe the Department or Category and include the name of your store.
- Fill in Search Engine Description: This should be a paragraph describing the particular Department or Category. However, you want to make the first 150 characters of this paragraph the most meaningful because these are usually all that shows up in the search engines results. This is not to say that you couldn't make this description 500 characters, only that the first 150 characters are the most important
Be sure to fill out the Search Engine Description to help with SEO results.
