APPROACH

Solving User Queries Across The Funnel

We leveraged the deep expertise of the Cubelelo team on the subject matter to create high quality content. Alongside, we also focussed heavily on building the domain authority to outrank all major brands and international stores.

User Journey Specific Keyword Research

We identified 300+ topics to cover which play important roles in the purchase decision making and post purchase usage journeys of cubers. Via the former, we drove consideration and via the latter - we were able to strengthen the community and become the one stop destination for the Indian cubing community.

Ongoing UX improvements

We implemented detailed GTM tracking throughout the user journeys on the website to continuously identify improvement areas and improve the website UX.

Strategic Link Building

We kept identifying link building opportunities via SERP competitor research, niche specific website outreach as well as other high authority guest posting opportunities. Through all 3 - we were able to improve the DA from 21 to 45+.

IMPACT

Complete Niche Domination

Our plan gave us consistent month on month traffic growth. But at the same time, we also got a few bonuses with major Google algorithm updates. Our white hat strategies got significant boosts during Google updates creating upto 40% month on month traffic growth, on an already high base. 

Thanks to a holistic strategy and rigorous execution, we grew from  around 14K monthly organic sessions to 170K monthly organic sessions, in 24 months.

SERP Impact

We dominated 9700+ SERPs with top 5 rankings. Including 1000+ Snippet slots – right from featured snippets to image to video slots as well.

Business Impact

SEO became our primary awareness channel contributing over 30% of overall new users. This would then be funnelled into email marketing campaigns as well as in paid campaigns for further conversions.
