Skyrocketing Within a year of project collaboration with a client from the EdTech industry, our SEO team successfully rolled out 15 regional blogs optimized for SEO and UX/UI, achieving a staggering increase in clicks by 9745%.
The SEO initiatives, carried out in close collaboration with web development – Code Union and UX/UI – Flow Digital teams, affirmed that the magic truly lies in synergy, driving growth beyond any scale.
How We Amplified Clicks by +9745%
We analyzed year-over-year data from the past three months in 2023 (May, June, July) and compared it to the same period in 2022 when the old blog design was still active. Among all the regions that experienced success, Poland, Turkey, and Saudi Arabia stood out.
Clicks: +300% – 10.2k (2022) vs. 40.3k (2023)
Impressions: +370% – 566k (2022) vs. 2.65M (2023)
Clicks: +1850% – 3.22k (2022) vs. 62.8k (2023)
Impressions: +1533% – 120k (2022) vs. 1.96M (2023)
Clicks: +9745% – 323 (2022) vs. 31.8k (2023)
Impressions: +6393% – 15.4k (2022) vs. 1M (2023)
SEO Results Across 15 Regions
We achieved stellar results across all 15 regions where we implemented the changes. A detailed breakdown is available in the provided table.
Disparities in performance can be attributed to the unique characteristics of each region. Factors include market variations in competition and cultural preferences toward English learning among children in specific countries.
For instance, in Poland, there’s a high interest in English learning and a saturated market, hence more minor growth differences. Contrastingly, in Saudi Arabia, where English learning is less popular, and the market remains largely untapped, our changes led to an exponential surge in metrics – something that’s challenging to achieve in the Polish market.
Initially, blogs in countries like Turkey and Saudi Arabia had fewer content pieces and generated less traffic, explaining the pronounced results after the changes.
Impact of SEO Efforts on Client Business Metrics
Below, we present the percentage changes in client revenues for the entire business in all regions. One of the reasons for the increases were SEO, web-dev and UX/UI changes implemented by our specialists.
Project’s success and the challenges we overcame
The client aimed to reduce reliance on growing budgets by increasing sales based on SEO actions and boosting earnings from organic traffic.
The redesigned blogs were intended to enhance conversions from the top of the sales funnel, improve technical SEO scores, synchronize with the new main page design, and provide a user-friendly experience.
Prior SEO strategies mainly targeted the bottom of the sales funnel, limiting further SEO enhancements.
Focus on top-funnel traffic generation, ensuring the new traffic was meaningful by optimizing the site per UX guidelines.
The need to establish client’s image as an e-learning expert by adding value-driven features on blogs.
Undertake UX/UI actions and implement interactive elements on blogs to elevate user engagement.
The outdated and unappealing look of blogs was inconsistent with the new main page design. Publishing articles and implementing SEO guidelines on the old design was tedious.
Introduce a new blog module design that enhances user intuition and expedites the article publishing process.
Our actions & their impact
- Implementing a new SEO-optimized graphic design for blogs across 15 regions has further fueled the growth of organic traffic. Thanks to our combined efforts in SEO, web development, and UX/UI, we’ve witnessed significant surges in both clicks and impressions. During the migration, we ensured the pre-existing traffic of the blogs was safeguarded before rolling out changes.
- The UX/UI team’s design of additional blog features, such as contests, quizzes, and downloadable PDFs, combined with their implementation by web developers, has not only improved conversion rates but also boosted user engagement on the blogs.
- With the launch of the revamped blog module, the process of publishing articles across various regions is now twice as fast. Additionally, the page speed metrics have seen noticeable improvements.
Project Implementation – Bringing Strategy to Life
