The Ultimate Large Language Model Optimization Guide for Online Retailers

The most complete and authoritative guide to optimizing your ecommerce product content for large language models like Bing, ChatGPT and Bard. 

Aside from the Internet itself, it’s safe to say no technology has had a greater impact on how people shop over the last two decades than the Search Engine. Today 89% of shoppers consult a search engine results page (SERP) when making a purchase. 

Now another results page threatens to test the SERP’s primacy: The CHERP. With their vast knowledge bases and lightning-fast response times, LLM-powered chatbots like OpenAI’s ChatGPT, Google’s Bard and Microsoft’s Bing are poised to become another indispensable tool in shoppers’ hunt for just the right product.  

In a move that speaks volumes to the importance of this new technology in the buying journey, Amazon is working on its own chatbot that will “reimagine Amazon Search with an interactive conversational experience” to help customers make better buying decisions. 

Some call it Large Language Model Optimization (LLMO). Others are calling it Generative AI Optimization (GAIO). Still others are labeling it Answer Engine Optimization (AEO). The name will likely change as the practice matures, but one thing is for sure: it’s here to stay.
