Friends, Happy New Year!!
Are you all rested from a break over the holidays?
We certainly are, and we’re back at it this week with our hearts full of excitement (and our tummies full of pie) for what 2018 has in store.
But first—let’s look back at 2017, because it was a full year for us at Clapping Dog Media.
We worked with over 65 amazing clients across US, Canada, and Europe. We are some lucky ladies to get to work with these kind, smart, and talented clients.
Our team grew to 4! Ashley, our social media genius, joined our team in early 2017, and Tina joined as Meg’s admin mid-year. Rachael continued to write for the blog and Clapping Dog Media clients, and of course, Meg continues to steer the ship and do what she does best: get clients a big boost in SEO rankings.
Our Success is Our Client Success, which makes us so happy for our wins. There are so many client success stories that we’ve decided to create a #Page1Club celebrating clients who get found on the front page of Google (watch for those posts on social media!)
Our Clients’ big SEO wins of 2017:
Most Improved over the last year: Communication Rebel, found for nearly 4k keywords with nearly 200 in the top 3!
Most Words in the top 3: Closet Case Patterns (254 words in the Top 3!)
Biggest Improvements in One Quarter: The Fullest.com growth in the number of keywords found for by google grew by 140% from May to Aug 2016
Best Compliment Ever: Steadfast Bookkeeping— “People are contacting me who found me from Google!” – Founder Stephanie Thatcher WAHOO!
Client that is killing Instagram: Pine Barren Beauty, she gets over 60% of her traffic from Insta!
Client that is crushing it on Pinterest: Scoop Industries! 93% of their social traffic is from Pinterest!
Looking Ahead to 2018!
2017 was super strong for Clapping Dog Media and our clients, but we just know that 2018 is going to be even better. Here’s what’s coming for us this year.
Meg is super excited to get to meet lots of online faces in person when she presents at The Workshop Phx, hosted by one of our amazing clients, Bloguettes. Meg will be speaking on all things SEO, and can’t wait to share what she knows with their audience.
PS—this in-person event is just the beginning! If you want an SEO expert at your event (who also happens to have the most fun sense of humor around), get in touch!
I always talk about how wonderful guest blogging is for SEO, and it’s time for me to practice what I preach! If you’re looking for guest posters on your site, we’d love to bring our SEO expertise to your audience. And if you want to be a guest poster, then send us an email at Meg@clappingdogmedia.com and let us know what you’d like to write about!
