Medino SEO Audit Case Study
What is Medino?
Medino is the online pharmacy that makes it easy to get the health, beauty & skincare you need without having to leave your home or stand in long pharmacy queues. We’ve got thousands of pharmacy products (even over-the-counter products) and prescription medicine that you can shop online, with everything from hayfever to supplement products.
They approached me to speed up their organic traffic and sales and help to achieve their financial goals.
Before the Audit
When Medino first approached Luca Tagliaferro SEO Consultancy, they were immediately recommended to start an audit. The reason is that we needed to understand where and how bottlenecks were blocking Medino’s organic growth.
They were concerned that after a period of long-term SEO investment with a different agency, there were no results, rankings were low, pages were not being indexed and changes didn’t happen.
How I helped
Luca Tagliaferro conducted an in-depth SEO audit for Medino, first checking Search Console data against possible algorithmic updates, brand/ non brand keywords performance, high impressions/ low clicks keywords, intent analysis and on-page SEO.
I quickly established a lack of growth and unfolded one by one the reasons behind it. The organic traffic was growing thanks to branded keywords growth, rather than non branded growth.
Reasons why growth lacked
When investigating reasons for lack of growth, I found that Medino had active cannibalisation issues and a lack of keywords intent match.
The site had thousands of similar product pages while some blog posts didn’t target the right keywords with on-page SEO strategies.
77% of backlinks are tagged as no-follow, which is typical for backlinks campaigns made from Digital PR agencies.
My approach was to increase the amount of do-follow links by allocating budget and time in building a steady number of backlinks a month, while keeping relevancy.
Tech SEO Priorities
In the last part of the audit, I assessed the tech priorities and built a table listing the most pressing one with a score of Low, Medium and High. Then, I gave extremely detailed explainations for each issue and what to do to fix them.
