The man lives not only from SEO
The evolution of organic traffic in these few months workedIn just 4 months after the initial audit, we were able to triple the baseline organic traffic data that the web. had. The Housfy project entered iSocialweb in mid-September 2017 and the following graph obtained from Semrush shows the evolution respect to organic traffic in the last 4 months: As an interesting fact it can be observed that the estimated cost of the keywords positioned through the organic channel is assuming an estimated savings of $7,400 per month for this client on the PPC channels (Adwords). In the visibility index shown by the Sistrix tool we can see how in the last few months the Housfy.com domain has been acquiring more and more scope and authority:
Relevant points of the SEO strategyWe highlight 3 of the strong points in the strategy followed in this client, although evidently there were more: 1) The importance of content quality. The project presented a basic problem and in a certain way difficult to solve: it generated a multitude of urls with poor content and a high percentage of similarity between the different urls of real estate ads and grouping these in locations with SEO value. We decided altogether with the client to provide those urls with a 100% unique and original content that would be generated manually. The objective was to have quality content that satisfied the user’s search and was relevant to Google’s niche. The effect on SEO was positive, improved keywords in Google SERPS, increased the number of visits and directly influenced the acquisition of customers for Housfy. 2) Definition of a clusterized information architecture by main services and customer needs. We analyzed the initial web structure of the project and saw a series of deficiencies and improvements to be implemented immediately. We restructured the whole website, as well as the sitemap of the domain focusing on the main services offered by Housfy to its customers, reassigning the level of web architecture that each of the content clusters should have and the result was a better distribution of the linkjuice of the own domain to the main categories and therefore a better positioning of these.. 3) Variations in the internal linking of the web. We optimized the internal linking of the Housfy domain. The objective was to give greater importance and authority to the main sections or container pages so that the Google crawler would have them more present and understand that they are the most relevant on the web. In addition with these changes we seek to improve efficiently how the linkjuice should be distributed in the different urls.. These actions, together with the rest, have allowed the project to reach Top for some keywords important as:.
SummaryIn just 4 months we have been able to multiply x3 the organic traffic that the project had when it entered our agency. It is a project with a competitive niche and high difficulty, however the growth is constant and positive, as shown in the graphs above. Factors influencing change:
- Good management of the contents of the whole website. Control and optimization of the contents with high percentage of danger of thin and similarity content.
- Correct link building strategy. Based on brand, where the origin and origin of the links are prioritized, as well as their anchors and their contextualization.
- Successful implementation of the web architecture. Based on the importance of the categorization of the sections, the different levels of indexation and the good distribution of linkjuice from the domain to main categories.
