Updating your product description

Your product description should be an objective, informative definition for your product and its niche within the larger software category.

image showing where product description appears on a product profile

G2 suggests adopting the following best practices when creating your product description:

  • Describe the full functionality of your software, product, or service in a concise way.
  • Use the right keywords. It’s important for your description to contain search terms that buyers use when searching for your product.

Using relevant keywords gives your product listing a better chance to appear on search engines, which may drive traffic and sales.

  • Avoid using hyperlinks and promotional language such as: best, easiest, leading.
  • Avoid reusing stock or templated product description content that is used across other pages on your website(s).

Product description updates are managed by G2’s market research team. To request an update to your product description, navigate to my.G2, then Product Profile > Product Information and select Request Updates.
