    SEO Strategy With Pillar Page And Cluster Content: The “Mechatronics” Case

    After a careful analysis, where each buyer's challenges came under examination, Modofluido defined a buyer persona. Each campaign would aim to address these needs. The first step in the content strategy was an SEO analysis. Modofluido created a document highlighting a range of keywords included across each customer journey phase (TOFU, MOFU, BOFU).

    By using the Pillar-Cluster Methodology, Modofluido obtained good organic positioning for the selected keywords.

    For example, in January 2020, Modofluido optimized the "Mechatronics" campaign for the "mechatronics" keyword, which receives 8,100 searches per month. It also exploited the strength generated by the 20 subtopics. Cluster contents also gained a position on the first page of the SERP for the inserted keywords such as "clouding systems for mobile vehicles" and "HART protocol."


    Conversational Marketing With Guido The Chatbot
