Health and Nutritional Supplements - SEO Case Study.
What We Did.
Due to the size of the website, to increase their organic visibility, we needed to increase the link profile. The products and categories used all of the same content as other manufacturers and retailers, which made it all duplicate content.
The problem lies in that Google does not value duplicate content if other web pages have a stronger link profile to that page.
The only way to rank duplicate content for particular pages is to have high-quality links bringing up the link profile. Visiture put together a link acquisition plan and strategy and executed it throughout the campaign.

Off Page Tactics.
To increase their backlink profile we used two different techniques.
Content creation and promotion is king of off page SEO. Our content strategists worked with their team to come up with compelling content that their target audience would love and identify with.
Our team then created this content and identified keyword relevant websites with a good DA to then pitch this content to. During this time, we were able to acquire high-quality placements using the content generated. We also saw a large increase from the AHREFs score, going from around 29 million to 6.9 million within a couple months.
Content Creation And Promotion
The second initiative was to create compelling on site content that would help to acquire high-quality backlinks. Our content strategist and outreach specialists worked with their team to come up with compelling content and then published to their blog.
We then promoted this content to writers who had written similar content. The results were outstanding and were able to garner high-quality backlinks and social media signals to the blog. We also included inner links to key category pages within the blogs, which allowed them to boost these pages up and achieve higher organic search positions.
As expected, the results for the company were outstanding. Over the course of one year running the campaign, we saw a steady and gradual increase in search traffic and sales.
Over the past 3-6 months, we saw the largest increases, which was mainly due to the backlink profile reaching new heights and spreading the authority throughout the site. Using SEMRush and Ahrefs we were able to see how the campaign performed, without giving away confidential data.
Using SEMRush we could see the total amount of keywords, which increased substantially. In November of 2015, we had 2,449 total keywords which has increased to 4,925 total keywords.
Also in November of 2015, 12 of their keywords were in the top 10 and by November 2016, 241 keywords were in the top 10. Ahrefs paints a similar picture in regards to estimated traffic and keywords ranking:
Lastly, we were able to correlate high-quality backlinks to the increased keyword rankings, traffic, and sales, because in Ahrefs we are able to see large increases in the “score” of the backlink profile.
This then correlated to the increases mentioned earlier. Overall, it was a successful campaign and the Visiture team continues to build off the success.
