Table of Contents

Working with clients belonging to different niches has been a challenge and an opportunity from the very first day we stepped into the digital marketing field. And we believe this is the beauty SEO has to offer to all the digital marketers out there – abundant opportunities!


Moving on, in this series of case studies, we’re back again with yet another striking case study of one of our clients from the bullion industry. For the sake of privacy, we’ll be referring to our clients as Bullion Dealers throughout this case study. 


Our client, Bullion Dealers, approached us back in January 2022 with a request – to help him generate online leads and optimize his business website for both users and search engine bots. Since it is exactly what our EXPERTISE is, so we didn’t think twice and arranged a meeting over a zoom call. And what followed after that is all we’ll discuss in this case study. 


Splendour Group has been doing overall SEO for the Bullion Dealers for six months now. But here in this case study, we will mainly focus on Google Business Profile or GMB, which increased leads by 100% in 5 months. We will also talk about the client’s business background, our exceptional SEO strategies and services that led to a dramatic increase in new leads & other vital metrics, and not to miss, our amazing stats!


So without further ado, let’s hop in!

Business Background

Bullion Dealers is a family-owned and operated business in the United States that has been passed down the generations. With decades of experience and extensive knowledge of physical gold and silver investment products, the company has been ruling its local market for a long time now.

Our SEO Strategies and Their Outcomes

We began with on-page SEO first, optimized the contents around keywords with high search volumes, redesigned webpages, and structured URLs, added new elements on the site to enhance user experience, optimized media files, and so on.

We gradually started doing off-page SEO alongside on-page/on-site SEO. We began with basic off-page strategies, including business citations, profile building, article submission, broken link building, and forum posting. We were able to get high-quality backlinks from high DA-PA sites and are still continuously working on link building. Presently, it has more than 8k backlinks, 590 referring domains, 4.5k organic keywords, and a traffic value of $2.9k. 


After a hands-on experience and exceptional results from the on-page and off-page SEO techniques, we kicked off the technical part. We got more than 600 pages (product and post pages) indexed, made the site mobile-friendly, created a robots.txt file, generated dynamic XML sitemaps, used relevant Schema markups for each page, and optimized the site speed for both mobile and desktop devices.

Our next challenge was to get impressions and drive leads. We started publishing optimized informational content and product pictures every day. We targeted keywords with pretty good search volumes and created content and designs surrounding them.
