The Topical Authority Approach

Coming up with new SEO strategies that work can be tricky. With topical authority—an idea of creating high-quality, original content that fully covers a topic—we wanted to focus on making our client a trustworthy authority in dentistry.

The website for Drs. Olsen, Napolitano, and Cangialosi was one of the first clients we would employ this strategy on. We began writing content section by section, starting with dental implants. Each one of these pages was carefully written to correspond with one another but still possessed enough unique information on every page.

After adding a few sections, we patiently waited to see better results. We did start to see small upticks in traffic, but we were also battling Google Core updates at the time. That’s when we decided to also start blogging to further support the topical authority content. When monitoring progress, we used tools such as Google Search Console, SE ranking for keyword tracking, and Google Analytics.

Real Results

Just like any other SEO strategy, topical authority won’t get you a plethora of website traffic overnight. It took many months of tweaking our strategy and uploading new pages to see upward movement. However, by May 2023, we started to see promising results.

Impressions for this website were now sitting around 7,000 a day—a 133% increase from January 2023. Throughout the next few months, we saw ebbs and flows of traffic due to Google Core updates. However, we never saw our numbers drop below where we started.

As of February 2024, we had reached a new high of 406 clicks in one day and over 13,000 impressions.

By utilizing keyword tracking tools, we’re able to monitor the position fluctuations of specific keywords. Drs. Olsen, Napolitano, and Cangialosi have earned many number-one search position spots, along with numerous spots in the top 3—aiding in website traffic.
