The website did not generate enough traffic due to weak organic positions. Cefic wanted to improve their natural rankings to increase traffic.


As the website disposes over a high level authority (partially related to the .org domain), it were mostly technical and content related factors that required optimization. Knewledge conducted a technical audit to identify and solve technical issues that had a negative impact on indexation. After that keyword research was carried out and on-page factors for the concerning pages were optimized. Positions and natural were monitored.



After the implementation of all recommendations, the positions of the most important keywords increased progressively.

  • Positions increase from 15th to 2nd position,
  • Organic traffic increased by 5 times.
