Why they hired us
Pure Storage was seeking more visibility and organic traffic in key markets. While Pure Storage was quite successful in the United States they sought to improve market share internationally, particularly in Europe.
They wanted to combine the expertise of Local SEO Guide with their own in-house SEO team to help them drive more user traffic in counties where they underperformed in search.
To achieve this, Pure Storage trusted LSG to perform keyword research to aid their expansion and craft a strategy to address how they could replicate their success in the US.
What we did
LSG provided suggestions for driving more leads and revenue from target customers via organic search. Additionally, we built an SEO roadmap with a custom dashboard to track their investment and progress. This included outlining the priorities for international SEO and how their content and backlink strategy could be augmented to serve these business objectives.
Local SEO Guide provided a data-backed strategy and the resources to implement across three key areas.
1. Keyword & Market Research
Our team of industry experts analyzed various target languages and markets and identified keyword difficulties and search intents which varied by language and region. This allowed LSG to find new opportunities, point out pitfalls, and fix current internationalization problems that led to the success of the SEO program.
The market research also revealed aspects of similarity between the international English-language competitive landscape and the American landscape including how to create and structure content for optimal growth.
2. SEO Content Strategy
LSG crafted a content strategy to localize content and map keywords to solutions pages, pricing pages, troubleshooting pages, and general knowledge articles to capture more traffic.
Additionally, LSG wes able to identify gaps in content for a hub as well as opportunities for creating images and videos for wider exposure in SERPs.
Finally, we worked with in-house staff to regularly refresh content and build out their content in international folders.
3. Link Building
Local SEO Guide operationalized our proprietary, internal machine learning tool Squeryl with 3rd party ones to identify the highest impact pages for link building efforts. This allowed LSG to increase user traffic to priority pages and gain international visibility.
