  • Website:http://www.myshadicards.com
  • Industry:Invitation Cards Supplier
  • Target Market:Worldwide
  • Challenges:

    As MyShadicards was newly built website, we had to begin from the scratch. The SEO challenge that we faced at the beginning of the campaign was the Google Indexing of all the website pages. Also we had to focus on proper keyword research & targeting with on page optimization. Above all, the major challenge was:

    • 1) No Backlinks
    • 2) Low Conversion Rate
    • 3) Social Media Optimization
    • 4) Generate Quality Traffic
    • 4) High Competition

Our Findings :

YourSEOPick team came out with following findings that were barriers for Myshadicard's poor performance on search engines.

Missing Title Tags:

Title tags are the most important on- site element to influence rankings. Title tags should be unique for each page with the brand at the end and the primary keyword at the beginning. Adding a unique title tag to each page summarizing the focus of the page will improve relevancy and search engine rankings for targeted keywords. During our technical assessment, we found that no title tags were used.

Poor Meta Descriptions:

Meta descriptions are displayed in search results much like paid advertisements. Optimized meta descriptions are known to improve click through rate. Meta descriptions should include a call to action and align with the title and H1 tag of a page. We found that no meta descriptions were used.

High Page Load Time:

With continuous algorithm updates, the search engine giant, Google, emphasized on saving low page load times in order to improve user experience. In his update, Matt Cutts, Google’s Webspam team head, specified that the new algorithm update will consider site's page load time as an important factor for rankings. While technical assessment, YourSEOPick team tested the page load time & found that site takes 13 seconds which was slower than 70% of all tested websites.

The main factors that contributed to high load time were large css & javascript files, improperly optimized images & scripts, missing browser caching etc.

Domain Authority & Trust:

The domain authority of site is an important factor that ranks the site as high- quality or low- quality. It is measured on a 100 point scale, with any site above 40 being considered a fairly good quality site, and sites above 70 being considered truly high quality. When YourSEOPick team tested Myshadicard's domain authority as compared to competitors, we found that it was 12 (out of 100) which states that the site's quality is above average in terms of trust & authority & requires attention.

How we did it?

Approach:

If you are taking your business over the internet with the help of your business website, you will have to increase your organic traffic. As Myshadicards intended to convert visitors around all over the world, we started with gaining maximum traffic from all the locations which can be converted into customers. On-page optimization had to be taken into account first, followed by off-page optimization and build high quality relevant backlinks by increasing backlinks, social reach, and online promotion.

Implementation:

Phase 1 – Website audit

Prevailing website was assessed against a list of checkpoints including major ones like website errors, design issues, links, url health, meta tags, content quality, robots.txt, file size, alt tags, sitemap etc.

After completion of website audit, major issues found with website were as follows,
  • Poor Page Speed
  • Missing alt tags
  • URL non-seo friendly
  • Images more than 20kb
  • Improper Meta Title & Meta Descriptions
  • Improper Header Tags
  • Unminified CSS & Javascript
  • No Social Site Activation

Phase 2 – Keyword research

Extensive keyword research on keywords like “Online Indian Wedding Invitations”, “Exclusive Indian Wedding Invitations”, “Hindu Wedding Invitation Cards Designs” etc.. was performed using keyword research tool like Google Adwords.

The process :

  • Extracting the search term from each page of the website
  • Generating list of most relevant keywords
  • Analysing the keywords used by Competitors
  • Finding number of search results and global searches per month for each keyword.
  • Derivation of most appropriate, profitable generic keywords based on KEI and client demands
  • Derivation of secondary & long tail keywords for inner pages and specific pages.

Phase 3 – Onpage optimization

Onpage optimization being the most demanding aspect of Myshadicards, was performed with content optimization in core of all onpage factors. Google webmasters tools and Google Analytics Account was set up to track the website errors & analyse the website traffic respectively. Apart from this, Myshadicards was also optimized for Site Speed, Image Size, Alt Text, Meta Title & Meta Description, CSS & Javascript Minification and various other onpage factors.

Phase 4 – Website testing

Website assessment for errors, bugs, content mistakes and usability was performed to check out website's SEO health after onpage optimization.

  • Post optimization report sent to client.
  • Website finalization with client approval.

Phase 5 – Offpage optimization

As Myshadicards targeted global market, the core strategy for off-page optimization was set to create high quality natural back links and social influence back links along with niche backlinks that could significantly help this kind of site to get higher rankings. Apart from usual link building strategies, we also kept updating our SEO strategies incorporating newer approaches regularly as per client's niche and changing search engine trends.

We initiated by doing Article Submissions in high pr quality article sites. The title of the article focused on the generic keyword with inner category link in the body content.
