3- Challenges

At the beginning of the collaboration between SEOART and Emlakjet.com, a series of technical SEO challenges were encountered that hindered the success of the project. These challenges focused on creating a website structure compatible with Google's search engine algorithms and best practice standards.

Technical Infrastructure and Site Structure Issues

At the start of the project, Emlakjet.com's website faced issues such as insufficient visibility of real estate listings in Google search results and ineffective listing of ads. Pages created with repeating keywords and lacking content quality led to a disorganized and inefficient content structure, causing the search engines to perceive the site as low quality.

Keyword and Content Optimization Deficiencies

Deficiencies in the site's technical structure and content quality hindered achieving desired rankings for key terms. Even for critical sector keywords like "real estate," "rental house," "sale plot," the site did not appear in the top 10 results, leaving it behind in the competition.

Non-Compliance with Modern SEO Standards

The site's technical infrastructure issues, including ineffective rendering by Google, a faulty cache mechanism, inadequate CDN performance, ineffective landing page analysis, lack of internal links, and low-quality content, were significant factors. Non-compliance with modern SEO standards like CMS, Structured Data, URL structure, and Core Web Vitals left the site vulnerable to Google updates.

These technical and content challenges were the primary obstacles that needed to be overcome for the project to progress successfully.

4- Our Goal

The primary goal of Emlakjet.com's collaboration with SEOART was to rapidly improve the website's technical structure, content quality, and backlink profile, aligning it with Google's guidelines to maximize performance. Our main aim was to position the website in the top three rankings for the most competitive keywords in the real estate sector.

Analysis of the Sector's Competition

The real estate sector is characterized by intense competition and constantly changing market dynamics. In this sector, websites that have made significant investments in SEO over the years have established a solid digital presence. This scenario indicated that Emlakjet.com's SEO strategies needed to be not only current but also innovative and effective.

Technical and Content Innovations

The project focused on aligning the site's structure and content with Google's current SEO guidelines. Actions such as strengthening the technical infrastructure, optimizing content for users and search engines, and developing an effective backlink structure were among the primary objectives.

Strategic SEO Planning

Strategic planning was implemented to achieve these goals, identifying gaps in the market through sector analysis and competitor reviews, aiming to strengthen Emlakjet.com in these areas. Key steps included keyword selection and targeting, on-site and off-site SEO activities, user experience, and site speed.
