HOW WE DID IT
- Restructured the site from subdomain to country/language sub directories
- Improved search UX of categories
- Link building outreach in Arabic and English
- Meta templates for site-wide optimization
The FACES website suffered from complex infrastructure, which accumulated over time when multiple subdomains and technologies got added. Our priority was to migrate multiple geographic subdomains to a single root domain with a subfolder structure and consolidate the technology to a single CMS; Salesforce Marketing Cloud. Our goal was to simplify crawling and indexation, minimize technology bloat and fortify ranking signals upon a single subdomain. With the subdomain migration completed, we focused on driving link equity to the new country-language subfolders via internal and external links. Our next focus was enhancing bottom-funnel search traffic through improved category page UX and content while using templates to optimize tens of thousands of product pages at scale.
“The growth we have achieved in the past 12 months has been phenomenal. Organic traffic, transactions, and revenue have increased massively.”
