The Problem.

 

The challenge was to increase organic traffic sent to the website from search engines.

We initially carried out a full technical audit and identified search engine accessibility issues on the One Water homepage.

Search engine robots were unable to follow any links from the homepage deeper into the website as the links were inaccessible due to the way the website was constructed. Although Google does understand and crawl JavaScript it wasn’t able to discover the links to the international subfolders as they were onclick events in JavaScript.

In addition to the accessibility issues, both http and https versions of the website existed, plus the international subfolders had very similar content written in English. Geotargeting wasn’t set up for the content in the different sub folders, allowing pages to self-compete in search results (internal keyword cannibalisation). The international subfolders also weren’t being maintained and content was out of date.

The Solution.

One Water wanted to remove the international subfolders on their website, which meant the domain home page was redesigned to include a new, comprehensive global navigation. This would enable search engine robots and visitors to easily navigate through the website.

Server settings were updated so that the web pages redirected to their HTTPS version.

There was no longer a need for multiple English versions of website content, so it was streamlined to remove the duplicate and out of date content.

Results in detail.

By adding more navigation to the domain homepage, Google and other search engines are now able to successfully crawl the entire website.

Previously lost credibility acquired via backlinks to the One Water website can now flow through the website’s new internal linking architecture, improving page authority of priority pages. The user journey is improved as visitors can now navigate through the site more easily with fewer clicks.

Duplicate content and internal content cannibalisation issues caused by the different country sub-folders have been resolved.

Organic Sessions

Organic sessions significantly increased by 62.76% between October 2018 (pre-website SEO updates) and November 2018. Traffic had previously been down year on year, however upon the release of the SEO updates we saw an immediate improvement in results, with organic sessions increasing to be up 25% year on year in the first week of the launched updates alone.

Organic Conversions

Organic conversions significantly increased by 67.8% between October 2018 (pre-website SEO updates) and November 2018. This result is enhanced by the fact we identified that tracking of both the contact form and donations submitted was not working correctly prior to the website SEO updates. We fixed the conversion tracking issues before the website SEO updates were undertaken in September 2018.
