    I once had experience in optimizing a furniture store with over thousands of pages - it was a headache, though we can safely say that the overall campaign was a success.

    We focused mainly on high-traffic, low competition, and specific keywords. For example, only a handful of people were searching for "Ottoman chairs" (example only). We optimized these kinds of keywords first - and these landed on specific pages showing the Ottoman chairs in the sites' inventory.

    Second, we focused on the category pages, specifically those being shown on the menu bar.

    We also took note of the spammy keywords and avoided optimizing high-competition keywords until we reached top three in the other pages first.
