Content Creation and Optimization

For any job to be successful, it is pertinent to have a bigger picture of the end-results and a clear-cut vision. Fortunately, we did have one, and thus, the Adwords campaign was out of the question. We remained steadfast in sticking to SEO campaign even with high competition for the keyword camping which had around 10000 searches per month.

Content Optimization

We began to collect more content from Campmonk for their website in the form of blogs. More camping-related blogs were regularly added and we also approached as many guest bloggers as we could and asked for their contributions to the website, and soon the website was loaded with new and fresh content.

We started SEO-proofing the articles and meta descriptions to satisfy our SEO goals. Fresh and quality content on the website meant effective usage of keywords. We had to take care of the length of the article along with the frequency and the positioning of the keyword in any particular blog. Of course, we don't ever believe in keyword stuffing!
