After completing an SEO audit sitewide for Anthea Crawford, the team at Digital Eagles did On Page optimisations on over 800 pages and utilised Anthea Crawford’s existing website authority by creating a diversification strategy for the backlink profile along with updating some important content pieces on main target pages of the website.
By gathering crucial data from this audit, the team were able to gain actionable insights and form a hypothesis of how to improve the websites user experience and encourage more conversions. A list of major changes were provided which were signed off by the client.
After providing a new website design mock up which was approved, the team at Digital Eagles began AB split testing the website by sending 50% of the audience to the old website vs. 50% of the audience to the new website design and tracking the engagement and conversion metrics of each to crown a champion.
