THE CHALLENGE

When O-CITY reached out to Home of Performance, they were struggling with search engine visibility since the website was relatively new. O-CITY needed an SEO campaign that would draw high-quality traffic, with a strategy that would result in high domain authority and search visibility.

The objective was –

  • to enhance O-CITY’s visibility in organic SERP results and organically position it as one of the strongest solutions providers alongside its strong competitors
  • to increase the overall organic growth by 40%
  • to rank for high-priority business keywords, thereby increasing the search visibility of the website
  • to generate quality leads from the organic channel

THE SOLUTION

We had regular discussions with the O-CITY team to gather insight into their customers and we also performed an SEO audit on the O-CITY website. The strategy included an on-page, off-page, and content strategy and technical & UX recommendations. The goal was to increase the O-CITY website’s visibility and we managed to overachieve all set metrics which exceeded the client’s expectations for this campaign.

Here are some measures that we adopted –

  • Performed extensive KW research and identified opportunities where we mapped them to the relevant LP, if not create new LPs to target those KWs specifically
  • Optimized the website’s content elements, HTML elements, and site architectural elements for both users and search engine bots
  • Identified topics that customers were most likely to find interesting and helpful at each stage of their buyer journey
  • Created and optimized existing content to offer value to the searcher and provide a first-class visitor experience
  • Created backlinks and provided third-party websites with guest content to increase exposure and brand awareness amongst potential customers
  • Restructured the URL and optimized meta titles, descriptions, and headers based on the keyword mapping, ensuring that the top priority keywords were included in the elements and matched the search intent
    Created a strategic approach to link-building, especially on anchor text distribution through high-quality backlinks
  • Built an outreach program to produce 05+ guest posts on highly relevant sites each month

THE IMPACT

Studying the brand’s unique selling propositions (USPs), customers’ pain points and objections along with the competition and their digital strategies. This provided us with a better understanding of their service portfolio and provided clarity as to how we could position them as the best choice in digital payment experiences.

Here is an overview of what we achieved –

  • A 129% increment of organic traffic to the website over the course of the campaign period, with the number of users going up by 144%, from 6000 to 16,000 Users
  • Search engine visibility increased by 7.61%, going from 7% to 13.61%
  • 73% increase in organic keywords during the course of the SEO campaign
  • O-CITY ranked for 8 KWs in Top 3 and 23 KWs in Top 10 on SERP, post-campaign
  • Gradual increase in no. of organic leads with a healthy conversion rate of 1.25%. Considering how niche the segment is, this was a positive figure
