Google has recently introduced a guide to helping you prep in advance for these big sale days. By following their guidelines in advance, you can make sure your Black Friday & Cyber Monday web pages are indexed by Google. If you are having a sale starting this Friday, you need to get onto this now!!
✅ Create the page before the sale so Googlebot can discover and index it (hint: make sure you have the Google Search Console set-up and request your URL is indexed)
✅ Follow SEO best practices. Use title tags that are relevant to your business and based on what people might search for. eg. Organic Skincare Black Friday Sale
✅ Link to the landing page from your home page
✅ Use a recurring URL, not a new one for each event — show that the event recurs yearly in the URL (ie. preference for /sale/black-friday over /sale/2020/black-friday)
✅ Include a relevant, high-quality image
✅ Have your page recrawled to have the content updated quickly
