The Challenge:

When XFlats approached us, they were a completely new kid on the block. They simply wanted visibility through SERP rankings. The challenges for us were:

  • Finding appropriate keywords for the business
  • Visibility on highly competitive local keywords
  • SERP Rankings

The Solution:

XFlats was a newly developed website when it approached Techmagnate that required several changes for optimization.

To help XFlats get the visibility and rankings they needed on their selected keywords (30 in all), we proposed a solution that incorporated social content sharing and content curation along with on-page and off-page optimization.

Solution

"Using a combination of off-site SEO activities and constant on-site improvements, we saw a steady rise in the organic traffic coming to the website. Over a three month period (Nov’13-Jan’14), we witnessed a 27% increase in organic traffic."

The Result:

Despite being a completely new website and choosing highly competitive local keywords, which otherwise take a considerable time to rank, our team’s consistent work helped the company rank on almost all the keywords.
