How Do We Do It?
From style guides to deep-dives on specific stones, Barnebys regularly publishes articles on jewellery and gems on our online magazine. These posts rank highly on search engine results pages, which ensures we receive a steady flow of organic traffic. Our users spend a standard reading time of 3:20 on a blog page, indicating that our readers find the content useful and engaging.
In order to attract organic traffic, it’s essential to rank highly on search engine results pages. As an established website, pages on Barnebys rank in the top 10 results for many jewellery-related keywords in international markets. Searchers in the US will find lots on Barnebys when they look up things like “antique jewelry auction”, while Swedish users will find Barnebys when they search “Cartier ring” or “signet ring”. Since these keywords have a high search volume it’s very challenging for new sites to rank on the first search results page, but clients with related lots can appear to more searchers and obtain organic clicks by listing on Barnebys’ platform.
