SEO Case Study: Tophosts

Client: www.tophosts.com

Business Description: Tophosts is one of the longest running webhosting companies in the world. At one time it enjoyed high placement within Google results for its market. Unfortunately, when Google implemented a major algorithm update, Tophosts lost its favored position. This placed the company in a compromised position against competition within the same vertical.

Strategy

A full website analysis was performed identifying site wide hurdles impeding the property from ranking higher in the engines. A comprehensive SEO strategy was implemented, adjusting core facets critical to search engine spiders, such as traffic rich keywords, site-wide content, linking and coding elements.

Results

Tophosts experienced a significant ranking increase since joining Metamend. For example, within two months it benefited from a 158 percent increase in search referrals, has 12 traffic rich phrases on page one of Google, and seven traffic rich phrases on page one of MSN search.

"Once we made all the changes Metamend prescribed us, our ranking was back within weeks. Not only were we back to top 3 for one of our critical key phrases, we also gained higher rankings across the board for other key phrases that are relevant to our business." Celal Ulgen, VP of Marketing, Tophosts
