SEO Audit and Update

Marathon Group

Background

The integration of SEO and content strategy has become essential, as valuable content hosted on your website is more likely to boost backlinks, authority, and search engine rankings.

In today’s digital landscape, basic technical SEO is a fundamental requirement for maintaining a high-quality website. However, it is the creation and shareability of compelling content that truly sets websites apart in the long run.

Challenges

Limited Online Visibility: the website struggled to gain visibility in search engine results pages (SERPs), resulting in low organic traffic and minimal brand exposure.

Ineffective Keyword Placement: The website lacked a well-defined keyword strategy, leading to poor rankings for relevant search terms and missed opportunities to attract targeted traffic.

Suboptimal Technical Performance: Issues with HTML structure, file size, server response times, and other technical elements hindered search engine crawling and indexing.

STRATEGY AND IMPLEMENTATION​

Technical Audit: A thorough technical audit was conducted to identify and address issues that impeded the website’s performance. This included optimising HTML structure, improving server response times, and addressing any crawlability and indexability concerns.

Keyword Research and Optimisation: A comprehensive keyword research process was undertaken to identify relevant search terms with high search volume and low competition. These keywords were strategically incorporated into meta tags, headers, content, and URLs to improve keyword relevance and increase visibility in SERPs.

Content Planning and Creation: A content strategy was developed to create valuable, informative, and engaging content that resonated with the target audience. A checklist was implemented for new content creation, ensuring that all necessary fields, such as meta tags, alt tags, and internal linking, were completed before publishing. This helped in maintaining consistency, optimising content for search engines, and encouraging user engagement.
