We recommend to submit at least two chats per week, to keep your page interesting for search engines. Adjust the wording of your customers’ question in the “quackify” section after the chat was accomplished, to find a very catchy headline which will be indexed on google later on. Try to provide crisp, but also holistic answers to customer queries. Additional answers can help, to keep a specific question relevant to future visitors with similar issues. Holistic answers are more likely to support a good ranking on search engines. From our experience, your site ranking will benefit noticeably after 20 published chats. All the best. Your ProDucks.
