I wanted to share a little about adding new products to a site.

In December 2011 I was able to get photos and product information on new items that would be available to me for sale in the USA by late January 2012. I added new pages for each item with complete info other than price and of course no Add to Cart button. Each page was a Coming Soon page ...I did a resubmit sitemap xml in my Google Webmaster account once each page was complete. I left the new pages out of any menus but made a post in my blog each time I added one with a link to the new Coming Soon page. I also linked new pages on Facebook, Google+ and Twitter (don't forget to add #tag before key words by the way when you tweet) . Once the new products arrived in the USA I added a page to my main menu called New for 2012. This allowed me to showcase what was new so visitors could see all on one page and provide them a direct link to each item/page.

The results are:

New product pages are all indexed on Google

A number of pages are showing on Google first page already for my keyword phrases and images.

New pages are showing in analytics as landing pages

Have already made a couple of sales of products that just became available a few days ago.
