The Opportunity

Blog posts are a great authoritative driver of organic non-branded traffic.

The Process

MacMillan Search implemented methods to monitor and analyze search results, using our findings to provide optimization and implementation direction to the in-house team for both new and existing content. Weaving an SEO strategy into internal processes is key to ranking for high-intent keywords, and our process included:

  1. Refining existing content – A clear opportunity for growth was content that had intent-driven keywords within striking distance. With some refinements, we were able to increase visibility, position, and ultimately traffic. Tactics included:
    • Regular analysis of the winning and losing content
    • Optimizing to improve the click-through rate for the bottom-of-the-first-page search results
    • Improving signals for search results on the second page and beyond
    • Reviewing featured snippets for opportunities to optimize the results
    • Creating blog content that better answered the non-branded queries driving clicks to product pages
  2. New content creation – Our client is a thought leader in their space – maintaining this position required new, high quality content at consistent intervals. Our content direction pulled from the main and peripheral subject matter from the:
    • Industries and teams they serve
    • Products and their features
  3. Empowering the in-house teams – We supported content and development teams by answering implementation questions and clarifying SEO concepts. We did this using a shared Slack channel and hosting office hours.
