176% Increase in Traffic for WordPress Blog

We worked with WPMU DEV’s team in cleaning up their backlink profile, submitting a reconsideration request and also getting their penalty in front of the powers-that-be at Google.

Within a month at the next Penguin update, WPMU DEV saw a full recovery from their penalty on their owned domain, WPMU.org. To capitalize on what was the first public recovery from Google’s Penguin Update, we wrote a blog post on the highly-read Moz.com blog, which resulted in 12,000+ visits to WPMU.org and additional coverage from many secondary domains who covered the story.

After the recovery and initial publicity, the team at Siege assisted WPMU DEV/WPMU.org in developing a refined content marketing strategy through keyword research, SEO and social media that grew the site traffic greatly in the following months.
