The Challenge

Geektastic helps companies find the best candidates by building peer-reviewed code challenges for developers.

In July 2017, Geektastic was launching a fairly new concept. It positioned itself as a technical assessment and code challenge platform for either side of the hiring process: As a source for peer-reviewed coding challenges that hiring managers could use to test their candidates, and as a recruiter for coders to actually create these coding challenges. It needed to target both…it was targeting neither. 


Because it was a new site, Geektastic didn’t have much authority or online presence. It had no mentions, no traction, and very little traffic. There was no off-page SEO to speak of. And because it had not determined a strategy to attract its two target audiences, it wasn’t ranking for any keywords that drove the right people to its website.


In other words, Geektastic’s website needed the full SEO treatment with a solid keyword strategy and off-page optimisation to boost its site authority.
