SEO for Start Ups

Difference in Approach

Because we believe every business is unique in it’s own way.

SEO for start ups is different as every startup is different, and an opportunity in itself

Understanding the business is very important. User behaviour in particular LOB is different, and so is the response of search engines for that business.

Grasping the intricacies of your specific business domain is critical to its success. Each Line of Business (LOB) exhibits unique user behaviour patterns and responses to your products or services. Moreover, the way search engines respond and rank your business online also varies depending on the nature and nuances of your industry. As such, a deep, nuanced understanding of your business sector is crucial not only for enhancing user engagement but also for optimising your digital presence, thereby improving your online visibility and reach. Tailoring your strategies based on these specific behaviours and responses can help you create more impactful, targeted approaches to drive your business forward.

SEO for Start Ups

RSVR has been angel investing for close to a decade. Based on our years of experience in both investing and technology  – we have been able to support our ventures in the ideation and development of their products.

We have worked with a number of startups across different domains including e-commerce, proptech and carbon emissions tracking to name a few. Each of these ventures were vastly different from each other but all of them had one thing in common – their focus on generating revenue. A company’s ability to generate revenue determines its valuation and thus its ability to raise funds and realise its true potential.

Through our journey, we’ve collaborated with diverse startups in various sectors such as e-commerce, proptech, and carbon emissions tracking. The experience gained from working alongside these innovative ventures has expanded our expertise and deepened our understanding of their unique challenges and opportunities.

Case Study

The challenges we faced

There were numerous challenges we had to overcome in order to improve a website’s search engine rankings and visibility. We figured out a few of challenges that we need to address: 

 No sales once the ads were paused-

  • We noticed that pausing ads can lead to a significant decrease in sales and revenue for a business.
  • The success of an ad campaign is not just about creating great ads but also about consistent delivery and optimization.

Clicks on the website didn’t increase after the ads were paused- 

  • Pausing ads caused a decline in website traffic and clicks, which may result in missed opportunities for lead generation and customer acquisition.

Only 10% of the pages were indexed in Google Search Console-

  • A low indexation rate in Google Search Console can limit a website’s online visibility and hinder its potential for attracting organic traffic.

Website speed was not up to the mark. CWV kept failing.-

  • Poor website speed and continuous failure of Core Web Vitals (CWV) can lead to a negative user experience and adversely impact the website’s search engine rankings.

Our approach to problem solving

Find out the exact problem

Gather Information: 

  • To find out the exact problem, we start by gathering as much information as possible about the issue at hand.
  • The more information we have, the better we will be able to identify the underlying problem.

Find out where it started

Trace the Timeline:

  • It involves identifying when the problem was first noticed and then work backwards to identify any changes, events, or actions that may have contributed to the problem.
  • By tracing the timeline, it can pinpoint the origin of the problem and develop a strategy to address it.

Find out the impact of the problem

In order to improve your website’s search engine rankings, it is crucial to thoroughly investigate and understand the impact of any issues or problems that may be hindering the site’s performance.

Time and resources needed to solve the problem

When it comes to improving your website’s SEO, it’s important to understand that it’s not a quick fix and will require a significant investment of both time and resources.

Targets, their breakup and achievement trackers

To achieve success in SEO, it is crucial to set clear targets that are specific, measurable, and aligned with your business objectives.

Break down your targets into smaller, achievable goals and use reliable tracking tools to monitor your progress and make data-driven decisions to optimize your SEO strategy
