SSL Certificate Connection
SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is a cryptographic protocol that provides secure data transmission in a computer network. It is widely used in web browsers, as well as when working with e-mail, instant messaging and IP telephony. In 2018 the SSL certificate became one of the ranking factors in Yandex, and all sites began graduating to it.
At the beginning of our cooperation with the client, he did not have an SSL certificate, that’s why first of all we took up the transfer of the site to this protocol. We have developed the following recommendations:
- safe moving through Yandex Webmaster;
- setting up per-page redirections;
- updating the XML sitemap;
- setting up innerlinking.
20% Duplicate Pages in Search Engine Indexes
During the technical audit some problems with the indexing of important commercial pages were found:
- due to the duplicated pages – in this case, these are duplicates of the filter;
- errors in the XML sitemap, as well as broken links to its English version;
- full mirror of the site, duplicating the main domain.
We developed recommendations for error correction, 50% of which were immediately implemented by our client.
Lack of Relevant Landing Pages
The availability of relevnat pages for keyword clusters allows us to reach the target audience as much as possible and attract customers. When we started working with the site, its structure consisted only of basic services pages. According to the experience of working with logistics companies, this is only 10% of the entire possible site structure.
We have developed the keyword list which takes into account the geography of transportation. In addition to creating new pages, our team proposed to improve the structure of the site with a division:
- by type of transportation;
Lack of Relevant Content
The availability and relevance of texts is the important ranking factor in the logistics niche. Based on the keyword research, we prepared the content for each page.
Thanks to the implementation of our recommendations, we managed to achieve good SEO results. For 2 years we have tripled the share of keywords in Yandex TOP-10, and have doubled in Google TOP-10.
We thank the logistics company FESCO for productive cooperation and wish success in business. Our team has gained the invaluable experience!
