Vivastreet had historically enjoyed strong organic performance but saw a slowdown in growth over the course of several years, both in the UK and internationally. Due to the size and complexity of the international sites, we suspected that the cause was a combination of underlying technical SEO issues and changes to the wider search landscape.
To be certain that Google was crawling and indexing the sites correctly, we needed to ensure that they were technically sound through a comprehensive technical site audit that aimed to outline all areas for improvement.
As all the sites utilised the same template, a lot of the recommendations were universally applicable. However, we also recognised the need to perform secondary analysis on each individual property to be certain there were no leftover errors. The extended technical audit included:
We produced a comprehensive 180-page technical audit with over 155 action points to be implemented by their web development team. We also provided a detailed report on site structure outlining areas for improvement across thin categories, vanity categories, user intent, and more.
“We benefited greatly from Custard Online Marketing’s inclusive follow-up consultations and ad-hoc technical consultancy throughout… We’d have no hesitation recommending them for complex projects like ours.”
Since commencing our partnership, their Searchmetrics organic visibility score has increased by approximately 12%, even though they’ve only implemented a relatively small number of the most pressing recommendations so far.
With this increased visibility, organic users have also increased by 12% and organic revenue has increased by 18% YOY, comparing October 2018-May 2019 to October 2017-May 2018.
