    He took it from Matthew Woodward

    http://agency.matthewwoodward.co.uk/case-studies/coupon-code-rankings/
    ---------------------------

    This client came us around 8 month before when I started complete SEO analysis and implementations.

    Good part was client trusted us and handover the website with conditions without making it down and nothing will change on the front end except the content.

    Nice Of Client’s Business:

    Client monetize with the help of coupon code from his website.

    Today, in this case study, I am going to share how we have worked deeply for SEO and increase organic traffic to 472,591 from 10,439 per month.

    Challenge

    Client brand was well established and they have build good offline reputation with the quality of services they have provided through online channel.

    [​IMG]

    One of the biggest challenges I had faced was to fetch large traffic from targeted keywords, which were highly competitive.

    [​IMG]


    Solution (Full Details Below)

    We created a comprehensive onsite audit before building the overall domain authority with a network of high-authority domains and traditional outreach to relevant blogs and sites.

    The Results

    Since implementing the strategies below, the site has seen traffic continuously grow month on month-
    • A 4,207% increase in search traffic from 10,439 to 472,591
    • 558 keywords in the top 3 & 1,501 top 10 keywords
    Detailed Case Study - How I Did It?

    As a result of their heavy competition, the brand had very little visibility on the first two pages of Google for key traffic driving terms.

    In the 7 months I have been working with the client, I have fixed a large number of on-site issues, drastically improved the domain authority and sent a significant amount of link equity to the site.

    Campaign Goals

    After a complete review of the site I put together a bespoke strategy for the site.

    We outlined the core campaign goals of the strategy as follows-
    1. Push core keywords into index. The brand was not ranking for broad terms which have hundreds of thousands of combined searches each month in the US.
    2. Bring keywords on the first 5 pages to page 1. Specifically terms with 10,000+ monthly searches that were currently ranked in the top 5 pages.
    3. Increase overall search visibility for longer tail, conversion focused keywords. Long tail terms with thousands of searches a month were hovering around the 3rd page. These represented good “quick win” opportunities.
    4. Ensure correct on-site optimisation. The site had several crucial on-site weaknesses that needed to be resolved if the brand was to grow. One example was that the site had poor URL structure/content siloing & severely thin content which left them vulnerable to Google’s “Panda”.
    Strategy & Implementation

    The core strategy was to:
    1. Create a comprehensive audit to create an SEO friendly site with well optimised content that was relevant to target keywords.
    2. Build the overall domain authority using a network of high-authority domains as well as targeted outreach to relevant established blogs and sites.
    3. Build the authority of key internal pages through the use of targeted links, pointing directly to internal landing page URLs.
    On-site Optimisation

    The first thing I started with was on site optimisation to ensure we create a solid foundation to build rankings and traffic on.

    These are the key areas we worked on

    1. Page Structure & Content

    During the auditing process I wanted to make sure that the site would rank for as many relevant long-tailed keywords as possible. An important foundation for this was to restructure pages and content.

    Prior to commencing our work, title tags across the site were not optimized and were often too long/duplicated.

    It was obvious that no keyword research was executed before the content structure was set on the site so I set about redesigning that structure based on keyword relevance which led to a number of content improvements across the site.

    2. Keyword relevance

    We overhauled the title tags along with other key onsite elements on every page of the site in order to reinforce each page’s specific keyword relevance.

    Meta descriptions were often too short or non-existent so we went about creating those for every page to increase keyword relevance.

    When rewriting the title tag and meta description we applied a small amount of SEO copywriting wizadry to ensure that the pages would command the highest click through rate from Google's search results as possible.

    3. Technical issues

    I was also battling with a number of technical issues from broken internal links, broken external links, images not working and a host of other onsite problems.

    I took care of all of the necessary technical fixes to ensure the site was providing the best user experience possible while removing any SEO performance bottlenecks at the same time.

    4. Link Building

    The big elephant in the room when I started working together was how underdeveloped their link profile was.

    It was obvious that I needed to focus on link building as a priority if I was to get anywhere with their rankings for all the things they’re relevant for.

    But I had balance the aggressive goals of the client with the velocity of links I built and the anchor text distribution strategy we used.

    I acquired a consistent number of backlinks each month with a highly controlled anchor text distribution, including naked URL, branded & generic anchor text.

    As a consistent and strong foundation of links developed, I began to target the key category pages sparingly using exact match anchor text to rapidly push these pages through the SERPs.

    You can see how the number of referring domains increased over time below-

    [​IMG]

    While a network of high-metric domains was the driving force behind much of the improvement, I simultaneously ran a more traditional outreach based link building campaign to help bolster niche relevancy and make the link profile as natural looking as possible.

    The Results

    The proof is always in the pudding and I began to see immediate results after implenting the strategy above.

    Organic Traffic Improvements

    With the recommendations from the audit implemented in early July coupled with backlinks being pointed at the key internal pages, traffic continuously grew month-on-month.

    By February 2017, organic traffic was up 4,427.17% compared to June 2016, with 472,591 visits in January compared to June’s 10,439.

    Similarly, the number of new users had increased by over 4,207%, with 405,466 new visits in January compared to 9,414 in June-

    [​IMG]

    Overall Keyword Improvements

    Between June 2016 and March 2017, the number of keywords ranking at the top 20 positions in Google.co.uk increased significantly:
    1. Keywords in the top 3 places increased from 33 to 558 - an increase of 1590%
    2. Keywords in the top 10 places increased from 85 to 1,501 - an increase of 1666%
    3. Keywords in the top 20 places increased from 182 to 2,429 - an increase of 1235%
    Take a look at this screenshot from SEMRush that breaks down the keyword distribution-

    Tracked Target Keyword Improvements

    Across only 9 core keywords that we track in-house, there was an overall increase of 874 positions-

    [​IMG]

    A number of high volume keywords entered the first page, and a number of highly competitive terms entered the index and continue to rapidly ascend the SERPs

    These are the current rankings of the core keywords that we are tracking-

    OP, I'm just curious about your hompepage, you see it looks like it is from the 80s, yet is is only just over a year old. Which then makes me think about your motives behind this thread. I mean you have already gone for the pitch at the bottom of you post.

    Website was quite old and well established but it was lacking with SEO visibility and poor in terms on content planning and ranking.

    LOL. I see the website has been removed. Don't want to out yourself as the amateur you are and ruin your obvious sales pitch, all ready to sting the seriously gullible and soft in the head.

    Hi, Thanks for monitoring my thread. The website was not relevant to the thread I posted. It has nothing to do with it. With one of the guy I discussed told me it has broken links and better to remove it. I though it make sense. Just to make it clear I am not here to miss guide or ruin anyone. Anything which don't offer or deliver results does not stand long. No offense, I value your feedback.
