Brief & Objectives

Wijnland’s core objective was to increase enquiries and leads through the organic channel, as well as improve the overall quality of organic traffic through increased ranking positions for “fertility clinic” & “IVF clinic” related keywords.


To achieve the objectives of the campaign the first issue we had to address was the lack of existing visibility in search results. The website was not ranking well for “fertility” and “IVF” related keywords. Our analysis showed that the relevancy of the site needed to be improved for the target keywords we had identified.

We also recognised an opportunity to expand the keyword reach of the website for the different services it offered. This would entail ranking for keywords associated with each service, such as “sperm donors,” “ICSI,” “Embryo Freezing” and “Ova Donors.” We achieved this by creating separate service pages, as the site was initially displaying every service on a single page.

Additionally, we analysed the site’s loading speed across mobile and desktop and found the speed to be below the recommended loading speed. Given the importance of loading speed as a ranking factor, this was a key area to address.

Improving the relevance of the site for the target keywords, building out specific service-related pages and addressing the loading speed of the site were the steps taken to increase rankings in South Africa.

Our Solution

  • We optimized key pages across the site for the targeted keywords to build the relevance of these pages and improve their rankings. 
  • We worked with the developers on the build out of the different service pages. While this was in progress, we optimized the “sperm” & “donor” related pages to rank for their relevant keywords.
  • We conducted a mobile speed audit to provide recommendations to the development team on areas to improve, and brought the loading speed down from 12 seconds to 4.8 seconds.
  • We used content marketing and guest posts to link back to the the Wijnland website to build trust and authority.
