Challenge

Blue Nile approached Intrepid Digital in 2020 for help improving organic traffic in their key P1 markets (AU, CA and UK). The client had struggled in the previous 18 months with multiple ranking issues, including international cross-ranking in search results.

Strategy

We initially focused on configuration and setup of XML sitemap and hreflang implementation to help Google understand the different country folders and where pages should be ranking, as well as setting up baselines for keyword tracking and dashboarding, audits, keyword research and content gap assessments.

After that, we focused on manual XML sitemap implementations to reverse international declines. We also investigated international cross-ranking issues, and determined the configuration was mostly correct–hinting at a potential glitch or misreading of sites by Google. We proceeded with deactivating and implementing alternate solutions for the Geo-IP redirects, and put into place a staggered approach including country codes in meta titles.

We also made changes to old sitemap structure and response codes; analysis of competitive landscape to identify content gaps and opportunities; server log analysis; and upgrading category page templates.
