SEO Case Study: Typhoon!
I created this website in 2021 - purely because I liked the domain!
The domain was completely new so lacked any authority, so I
301'd a bunch of other local
.hk domains that I bought to power it up, and that definintely worked for the search terms that I was after. I scraped other directories and built out my own directories for specific niches in Hong Kong. I created the following directories, and the one that Google seems to have liked and the one I find the most interesting is the "Mobile Phone Repair" keyword-cohort.
The business directories I built out under this domain are as follows:
- Car Repair
- Dog Parks
- Hair Dressers
- Horse Riding
- Immigration Services
- Kid Parties
- Mobile Repair
The major challenge with this site was being able to get it indexed for anything! There is a lot of competition in Hong Kong for similar business directories so mine had to be "different" or more useful.
SEO Approach & Solution
My approach was to launch and see what Google liked! The answer was that out of all the directories I created on Typhoon.hk - the one that seems to have ranked the best is the "Cracking Mobile Phone" niche which is certainly an interesting niche to be able to dominate.
Vital Metrics, Year-To-Date: 2022
What's Next For The Website?
More content! Most likely aimed at mobile phone repair because I feel that this niche will continue to have demand.
