      EAT-ME-AT is a company manufacturing and selling plant meat based on textured soy protein.

      Our goal

      The primary goal is to improve the website positions for priority group queries:

      Source data:

      Region: Ukraine

      Raising traffic by 9 times on the food business startup's website 1

      Difficulties with the project

      Narrow niche, hardly any competitors, and 85% of responses are informational:

      Raising traffic by 9 times on the food business startup's website 2

      At the beginning of work, the site was new and with hardly any indicators.

      The product line consists of only three key products (only a few landing pages, for which we are collecting semantic core, very few queries, and in general all of them are low-frequency).

      Working process

      Semantic core and content management

      Technical audit of the site

      The technical audit included 41 items, in 15 of which we detected errors and the room for further improvement of the site. Our team has prepared a detailed ToR to correct all errors.

      Building up a link profile

      Conclusion

We managed to achieve such results thanks to a comprehensive individual approach to project promotion, understanding of the niche, and the specifics of promoting projects of such format.
