However, it should be noted that the erotic sector has more complicated when it comes to performing its linkbuilding or external link strategy. The vast majority of sites reject linking to sexually oriented sites like a sex shop.

In this sense, any owner of a sex shop online will have to find the “mañas” to get quality links and improve their SEO off page, which, to this day, remains one of the most important factors to reach the top positions Of the search engines.

A very effective SEO strategy is to buy links in digital newspapers. Not everyone supports the inclusion of links of erotic content and even, in the case of newspapers that do admit them, the content should be written with a focus more oriented to women’s health, society or relationships. For this, we recommend the use of platforms such as Unancor.

Gain more visibility

Leaving aside the SEO off page and assuming SEO on page is perfect, there are other ways to gain visibility for an online erotic store. One of the most common ways is to use an Inbound Marketing strategy focused on interesting blog content that solves the usual doubts of men and women as far as sexual issues are concerned. It is a good way to attract the attention of this type of users and the most common is to do it through social networks and the web positioning for searches related to those sexual doubts. 

In the case of, we can see that it has a blog of sexuality and eroticism in which they deal with interesting topics related to what we have. For example: how to use a vibrating ring, erogenous male and female zones or tips to start in the BDSM world.

Of course, the competition of the sector is very high when optimizing the CPC of Google Adwords and can become an investment too expensive. That is why it is important to measure the ROI and to know if it is a strategy that compensates in sales.

Finally, it is necessary to emphasize the important role that copywriting plays in any type of online store, but much more in the case of a sex shop. A persuasive writing focused on selling, which is also able to put the hair on the edge of the user and generate desire to test the product is the key to increase sales of a sex shop online.

If you add an attractive brand image for the user to remember and quality images that invite you to a world of sexual fantasy you have more than half the way done.

In any case, whatever the web positioning strategy, it is clear that the exponential growth of the online sex shop in Spain has a lot to do with the openness of mind and the greater freedom of men and women in sexual matters. Few people are scandalized when talking about a vibrator or a meeting tuppersex in which have all kinds of erotic toys.
