We needed to ensure the migrations went smoothly, we were also tasked with improving the site experience and increasing the amount of organic search traffic.
Verint was looking to increase non-branded traffic in a very competitive space and seeking ways to expand their content into new topic areas where their competitors were winning. Many of the brand names for their solutions are not what users are searching for, so they were looking for research and guidance.
Our efforts encompassed in-depth research, targeted content development, the implementation of technical SEO best practices and Digital PR.
While the website was in the staging environment, we identified, prioritized, and implemented technical fixes to help Core Web Vitals and other site performance issues. During the technical optimization process we identified and fixed several unnecessary redirects and duplicate content issues. We identified and implemented language and website localization best practices; this would ensure the right pages with the right content were showing up in the right markets.
We implemented our 6Rs Audit recommendations to better optimize any existing content. This audit told us what content should be “reformatted”, “repurposed”, “refreshed”, “retired”, “redirected”, or what content should just “remain” as is in order to meet user intent for different search queries. URL redirect mapping exercises ensured that all pages would be going to the right place and a robust internal linking strategy would help increase crawl activity, indexation, semantic relevancy, and page authority.
Post-migration, we monitored rankings, traffic and 404 page-not-found activity. We later developed new content ideation clusters supporting critical key themes and audiences that were identified as part of the research process. We leveraged relationships with publishers and influencers, placing content on relevant / high-value websites to build domain authority.
We continued to focused on non-brand by optimizing existing pages and creating new content to capture existing search demand.
Within only 30 days of launch, virtually all Verint’s migration KPI’s increased. As of Q1 2023, Verint had over 42,000 keywords ranking on Google, up more than 50% since engagement kickoff.
In addition to the ranking and traffic increases, the number of rich-snippets being returned by Google continues to increase over time, further cementing Verint’s brand positioning for number business critical keywords.
