I have a specific SEO problem. I created two landing pages for a clients website,on shopify.
After a week neither is really ranking, which probably isn't that surprising. I haven't done landing pages before so I am not really sure what to expect.
You need to define the keywords to rank for and use as many of the keywords from the list you define as you can and use them often in a web page, but not too often.
Based on the URLs you provided, the keywords will likely be claddagh and ring for one URL, and ogham, celtic and jewelry for the other URL.
Because not that many people will search for super specific terms like claddagh and ogham, you may safely eliminate those from your list of keywords.
Then in the page, make sure the important keyword appears once in the header tag (between
</h1>) and that it appears in the title and meta description tag.
So for a claddagh ring, you might have a page with this HTML code:
<title>Ring - the claddagh type</title>
<meta name="description" content="This claddagh ring is precious">
<h1>The Claddagh ring</h1>
<p>The claddagh ring is bla bla bla bla</p>
<p>bla bla bla bla</p>
<p>To order this fine claddagh ring, dial bla bla .....</p>
Notice how the keywords are close to the beginning of the HTML tags? I did that because according to textalyser.net, the most important words are found at the beginning of a paragraph. Just make sure the keywords in the document appear the most AND that they make up no more than about 5% of the total words. For example, if your document is a little over 200 words, then don't use the keywords more than 10 times.
This is a product page and doesn't have as much content...
Search engines rely on words in a web page in order to determine where the page ranks. If all your page has is only a picture with maybe ten words or so, then you can expect it to not appear on the first page of search results.
...rather than it just being too early for them to rank properly?
Google loves spending time with some things, but before waiting endlessly for ranks to hopefully go up, try to make the users well informed about the product in words because I'm certain at least one user who is mostly blind uses the internet and pictures will likely be meaningless to such users.
I can only find either landing page on google when I type in the exact title of the page, but it still ranks fairly low on the first page.
That's because you're being verbatim in the search. What I suggest is accessing the pages that rank higher than yours and see what they have in their title tags, meta description tags, and headers and how user friendly their pages are. Also, make sure your pages comply with google's webmaster guidelines.
