Austin, TX (PRWEB) October 30, 2012
Volusion, the leading provider of shopping cart software and services for online merchants, today announced its integration with Google Trusted Stores which enables Volusion 13 (V13) merchants using a Gold or higher store plan to earn a Trusted Store badge for their website. Volusion is among the first ecommerce providers to incorporate this integration for its over 40,000 merchants.
Google Trusted Stores is a program aimed at improving conversion rates and order amounts by giving customers added assurance that their store offers a great shopping experience. Once a merchant meets the performance metrics required by Google, their store will be awarded a Google Trusted Stores badge that can be placed on their website. This offers additional information about the site and its performance.
In order to participate in the Google Trusted Stores program, merchants must first sign up for a Google Merchant Center Account. There are also several additional eligibility requirements outlined by Google that must be met to participate in the program. Currently the Google Trusted Stores program is only available to merchants based in the United States.
“Volusion wants to help its deserving clients earn the best placements possible in both organic and paid search results,” said Nathan Joynt, Volusion SEO Manager. “By incorporating Google Trusted Stores into our ecommerce software, we hope to make it easier for our clients to prove they are trustworthy at the search level. This may help increase search engine click-through-rates from highly targeted and motivated consumers, and potentially increase revenue for our clients.”
Volusion has encouraged its merchants to sign up for the service as soon as possible in order to receive the badge before the busy holiday shopping season.
