The SEO Smoothie Challenge

Achieving Excellent SEO Results with 100% Transparency

We claim that we know how to achieve excellent SEO results.

Also we promise 100% transparency.

Based on these two affirmations we decided to challenge ourselves and to prove that we are worth every penny spent using our digital marketing services.  

The Challenge:

To start something new and fresh and to make it SEO popular.  

We created a brand new website – SEO Smoothie and we want to show you what progress can be achieved in extremely hostile environment (Digital Marketing) for a year.

The idea has been conceived on 18.11.2020 18:00 Western European Time. A domain has been created and a hosting service has been paid.

10 days later, on 29.11.2020, the initial small version of the website has been finished and published.

On 30.11.2020 we did initial (go live) audits of the new website.

They can be seen and downloaded from the following links:

SEO Smoothie – Keyword Research – 20.11.2020

SEO Smoothie – Technical SEO Audit – 30.11.2020

SEO Smoothie – Website Structure – 30.11.2020

SEO Smoothie – On-Page Audit – 30.11.2020

We establish our SEO Objectives. We decided NOT to be SMART (“specific,” “measurable,” “achievable,” “relevant,” and “time-bound”) but to GO CRAZY.

Even though the competition in our field is severe, we decided to have next main SEO Objective: “Move 50% of our 20 top keywords onto the first page of Google Results for Ireland within 12 months”.

Here is an interesting SEO Ranking Article where you can find out how “realistic” this Objective is. 

On the other side, if you do not have time for reading it all, here is a short quote from there:

“Only 5.7% of all studied pages ranked in the Top10 search results within 1 year for at least 1 keyword.

The Activities Plan for the first month:

  • Creating new content.
  • Fixing the content gap issues discovered during the initial audit.
  • Performing regular social activity.
  • Competitor analysis.
  • Backlinks building.
  • On 31.12.2020 making an audit and creating report.
  • On 01.01.2021 establishing the plan for the second month.

The plan is not very specific and the only reason is because all the activities will be pushed between other tasks.

Regular updates on our work and progress can be seen in the following blog section:SEO Smoothie Challenge“.

Let’s see what will be the result.
