Before creating the product page, we need to prepare 3 things:

Keywords: each product should have a unique keyword. We can use the Google Keyword Planner to search for the best keyword. The keyword with the highest search volume will be our main keyword and the other variations can be added in the full description.

Description: in the product page we will need to add a long description and short description. For the long description, we will need to prepare a well-optimized 3-4 paragraphs of at least 300 words in total. The text should include the main keyword for at least 3 times. The short description comes immediately after the product title and should include bullet points with the product features.

Images: we need to prepare high-quality images with a resolution of 2000×2000 pixels and named with the product keyword (no random names). Each image’s size should not exceed 300kb to not slow the page speed.
