582% Growth in Organic Traffic with Link Building and On-Site Optimization Image

582% Growth in Organic Traffic with Link Building and On-Site Optimization

The Client: Responsify

The Problem: Responsify, a team of inbound marketing specialists, was concerned about the low DA of their site. However, their client book was full and they did not have the time or expertise to invest in their SEO. They called Sure Oak for help.

The Solution: Before any link building could begin, Sure Oak SEO completed a technical audit to

their website and its existing content along with extensive keyword research. We found new keywords opportunities and optimized keyword density to drive more incoming traffic. To increase brand awareness and domain authority, we executed a variety of link building strategies including guest posting on high authority sites and editorial insertions targeting the highest opportunity pages. 

The Results: Since working with Sure Oak, in just six months Responsify’s domain authority reached 30 as they hoped for, increasing by 87.5% with over 345 linking domains.

“That helped all of the pages across our site to rank higher and because of that we are getting a considerably higher amount of leads coming through our website,” Responsify founder and CEO Edmund says. Thanks to this targeted SEO strategy, along with revamping and expanding their content, Responsify is seeing drastic increases in traffic through organic search with ranking keywords increasing nearly tenfold with over 1,500 keywords and a 582% increase in organic monthly traffic over the previous year.

How we achieved a 51% increase in software demo signups with our Game Plan Image

How we achieved a 51% increase in software demo signups with our Game Plan

The Client: Maptive

The Problem: After an algorithm update, Maptive had suffered a major loss in traffic. Not only this, but the traffic they were getting was less qualified than it had been historically. As a B2B SAAS company, most of their conversions came from free trials of their software, so this foreshadowed a calamity. 

The Solution: With 1,000 different

factors all influencing the site's rankings, we needed a holistic approach to really understand and address what was going on. For this, we turned to our proprietary SEO Game Plan for insights. This showed our team and Maptive the overall opportunity of different optimizations, how wide of a scope our project would require, the projected length of the project and many other important insights.

First, a website audit was performed to better understand current roadblocks for indexation and user performance. Once these items were fixed and updated, an advanced SEO strategy began that included the following:

  • Advanced Keyword Research
    • Research, Opportunities, Intent, Mapping
  • Optimizations Development
    • In-depth on-page development for users, and in turn, search engines
  • Content Planning and Updating
    • Current high-value page updates and new page development

The Results: Stemming from our efforts, we saw an increase of 51% in software trial sign up conversions from year one to year two. Trial sign up purchase conversions increased by 55% during this period as well. During the months of active SEO, we saw an organic conversion rate increase of 15% sitewide with organic traffic doubling year over year.

Feedback summary: 

The SEO and site optimization delivered by Sure Oak elevated their client to the number one result for a significant number of their targeted keywords. Their team was hard-working and communicative, staying on top of milestones and delivering results that support their client’s long-term success.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CEO of Justice Solutions Group, and we are a private investigations and intelligence firm based in Southern California.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Sure Oak?

We were looking to address our SEO performance on Google.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Sure Oak started by taking a holistic look at who we were, and what we had done so far with our site and our presence on the internet. From there, they created a plan for our goals and how to achieve them, and then once you approve it they get to work. For us, that included a bunch of SEO work as well as Google My Business optimization, landing page optimization, copywriting, and a scholarship campaign.

What is the team composition?

I’ve worked with around 4–5 members of their team.

How did you come to work with Sure Oak?

I met Tom (CEO, Sure Oak) through Upwork and hired them for a job with a client I was working with at the time. They did a great job there, so I brought them on for my project as well.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent somewhere in the $14,000–$15,000 range.

What is the status of this engagement?

The official project ran from January–March 2019, but we are continuing to tweak and maintain the final product with them.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

They were able to get us to page one on quite a few keywords that were pretty critical to us within a few months of launching their improvements. We started to see increased traffic and have managed to maintain that for quite some time since then.

How did Sure Oak perform from a project management standpoint?

They were great at project management. I have a thousand things to do in a day so that was something I was concerned about, but they stayed on top of milestones at all times. Everyone knew their role and was always in communication with the project manager.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re very future-leaning, so they focus on tactics that are not going to get you immediate results and then disappear the next day from Google. All of their tactics are completely above board and really deliver in the long term.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, not that I can think of. They’re a growing company, so there are always things that they are improving, but I didn’t have any complaints that were complete blind spots for them.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

They’re one company that you can trust to do honest work for their clients and do the best work they can. Definitely go out and get quotes from other agencies but know that you’re going to end up paying around the same amount for SEO, and it doesn’t get better than Sure Oak when it comes to execution.
