Project Overview

Sail Croatia is a travel company that provides luxury cruises and sailing vacations in Croatia. It specializes in luxury small ship cruising, active cruises, party cruises, and yacht experiences and caters to a diverse range of travel preferences and budgets.

Goal

Sail Croatia aimed to appear at the top of search results for terms like "Croatia cruise," "Dubrovnik cruise," "luxury cruise Croatia," and "cycling Croatia" in the US, Australia, and the UK. Despite spending almost a year building links and writing blog posts on these topics, their search rankings did not improve as expected. They then hired us to develop a strategy to help them achieve their goal.

Solutions

To help Sail Croatia achieve their goal of ranking higher in search results for their key terms, we implemented strategic link building tactics. These tactics effectively spread the influence of backlinks throughout the site, boosting the site's overall power and presence in search engine results. In total, our link-building team managed to secure 294 top-notch backlinks from relevant travel blogs, with an average DR of 44.

Link Insertions

We identified and collaborated with popular travel blogs that share the same target audience as Sail Croatia. By placing links in these blogs pointing to Sail Croatia, we aimed to drive traffic from these niche-relevant sites. This strategy not only increased visibility but also improved Sail Croatia's domain rating by signaling to search engines that reputable sites endorse their content.

Guest Posting

We launched a guest posting campaign, creating high-quality, engaging content that we published on well-regarded travel and lifestyle websites. These guest posts included backlinks to Sail Croatia’s website. By sharing Sail Croatia’s unique cruising experiences and expertise in these articles, we positioned them as an authority in the luxury cruise market.

Results
