The Challenge

Epicuren needed to boost their sales from organic search results. They had virtually no organic visibility for DTC (Direct-to-Consumer) eCommerce pages. Not only that, but their products and content did not rank prominently in the first page of search results, and organic search was only driving a small percentage of sales.

Our Approach

Red Door catered our approach to their needs by implementing technical best practices and content-focused SEO tactics to drive organic visibility for priority pages on Epicuren.com. This would include new keyword research and mapping, a technical SEO audit, content audit, competitive gap analysis, and redirect mapping for their redesigned site.

The Solution

To make the Epicuren.com revamp a successful one, we improved organic search visibility by identifying and improving various aspects of the site.

Here is a detailed breakdown:

As part of our technical SEO audit, we:
  • Fixed incorrect URLs in the sitemap
  • Fixed broken links & 404 errors
  • Implemented an internal linking structure
  • Fixed missing Schema.org structured data
For the content audit, we optimized the following elements to improve performance in search results: 
  • Title tags 
  • Meta descriptions 
  • H1-H6 headings 
  • Link anchor text 
  • Image alt text 
  • Page copy 
Finally, we created new content as part of our website redesign project, based on our content gap analysis of Epicuren and their top three competitors. Topics included:
  • Skin types (oily, dry, sensitive, etc.) 
  • Cleansers & masks 
  • Product ingredients 
  • Moisturizers
