Research Powers Keywords. Keywords Power Content.

The team at Darigold provided a list of strategic keywords that they wanted to rank for in search engine result pages. SiteCrafting used this list as a starting point and conducted research on important search attributes including search volume, difficulty and click-thru rate. This research validated the target lists and uncovered new keywords that folded into the strategy. The deliverable was an in-depth list of keywords, related searches and questions for the client. These keywords were also used to optimize the content on the Darigold website and served as a starting point for generating an editorial content calendar.
