SEO CASE STUDY

NUGGETSBYGRANT.COM

NUGGETS BY GRANT

Our client - nuggetsbygrant.com, had a successful business on eBay and Amazon, and wanted a store that would allow them to sell direct to consumer without fees associated with marketplaces. We created a professional store front, that integrates with both their eBay and Amazon stores, and automatically updates existing product listings when a sale occurred. From there, we moved on to marketing Nuggets by Grant, through three ways: SEO, Email Marketing, and Facebook Advertisements.

SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMIZATION

KEYWORD RESEARCH
We produced a keyword analysis for the industry, and presented Nuggets by Grant with a report on search volumes, and the difficulty of ranking specific keyword. Nuggets by Grant decided to target one key term, that was moderate to difficult in difficulty, but would provide a significant boost in traffic when they began to rank on the first page of SERPS
ON PAGE OPTIMIZATION
After we had chosen the key words to target, we optimized the content on site to reflect the keyword we were targeting. We updated meta titles and meta descriptions, edited on page content, optimized image sizes, and more. This process took less than one month to complete, and Nuggets by Grant was off to the races ranking on Google after month one (although it was pretty deep in the results!) 
CONTENT CREATION
After optimizing the on page content, we created a 4 month content marketing plan covering various industry specific subjects and topics. We regularly publish unique, original content to the site to improve user experience, drive traffic, and to target our specific keywords.
BACKLINKS
After we had finished creating Nuggets by Grant's content calendar, we began forming relationships with high DA (Domain Authority) blog and site owners, in an effort to secure high quality, do follow backlinks. We are proud to say we know alot about the gold industry, and have made some new friends!
