Forge Apollo’s Strategy for Success
To increase traffic quality, we knew we had to create more relevant content targeted to Delco Solutions’ target audience and their search intent.
Before we could create content to reach Delco Solutions’ target audience, we needed to understand what terms they used to seek out topics related to Delco’s offerings. Forge Apollo used industry-leading tools and best practices to research the ideal keywords to target with optimization efforts.
We chose keywords related to intent at various stages of the marketing funnel to attract potential customers at all stages of their journey.
Pillar Content Strategy
We deployed a pillar and cluster content strategy to build content related to Delco Solutions’ services. First, we crafted one monthly pillar page to cover their primary services. Then, we wrote blog topics on related, more detailed topics to serve as “cluster” content to support the pillars. This provides content for each stage of the journey. Cluster content also builds authority for Delco around those primary “pillar” topics.
Our SEO experts optimized every new page of content added to the site. In addition, we spent time each month touching up the optimization of existing content to boost rankings for targeted keywords.
After implementing our strategy for one year, Delco Solutions saw the following results in year-over-year quarter performance.
15.37 Increase in Average Ranking Position
Forge Apollo tracked Delco Solutions’ performance for strategically-targeted keywords. After 15 months, the website ranked an average of 15.27 positions higher than it did to start. Initially, the average ranking for the target keywords was 73.31, but it has risen to 57.94.
Ranking for New Keywords
With our targeted approach, Delco Solutions earned rankings for 11 new target keywords they previously hadn’t ranked for. A few examples are conference room av setup, conference room av system, and esports av equipment. They also started ranking for hundreds of additional, related keywords that weren’t specifically targeted.
