New web presence plus SEO helps Darigold be Udderly Amazing




Darigold, the marketing and processing subsidiary of the Northwest Dairy Association, is a farmer-owned and led cooperative founded in 1918. The co-op knew it needed a website that properly showcased the organization’s rich history and helped consumers connect with its products.

Displaying products in a new and exciting way was one of the priorities of this project. SiteCrafting embraced the opportunity to bring the co-op’s story forward and showcase its thought leadership in the dairy industry. The work began with a website. Search engine optimization and content strategy churned results for Darigold after the website launch.

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.
