Your Report - greenschool.org
Green School Bali
Your website is the cornerstone of all your digital activities. This is the home of your digital presence, where the research and conversion of customers happen, as well as tracking data for use on other digital channels.
The aim of this report is to asses the current state of your digital real-estate in terms of the website. We will asses the current traffic, sources of this traffic, organic keyword rankings and ranking factors. This report will result in a set of prioritised actionables that will inform a larger SEO Campaign strategy and roll-out plan.
Whilst this report will mainly be focused around SEO, we will also include some social media and basic conversion analysis. For a marketing plan to be successful we believe all channels need to align and work together in achieving digital objectives.
Above is site traffic over the last 6 months ending in October. From mid July we see a significant drop in traffic so it would be interesting to discover the cause of this. It coincides with Organic search pattern below. However traffic seems to be picking up again in the latter part of the year.
Mobile accounts for 53% of our traffic, with desktop at 45% and tablet with 2%.
Here we can see that majority of our traffic comes from the US & Indonesia, with fairly moderate percentages for other countries. A good question to ask would be whether or not we are optimising the site for the country that brings in students.
Domain Authority: 57
Below is a list of the top keywords we rank for in the US based off of estimated monthly visits. Top keywords are all direct search terms and a similar pattern can be seen when investigating the SERPs for Indonesia, Australia, UK and India.

Page Level Analysis
Your website does some of the basics right but is missing some very important key technical information and needs correction or improvement in some areas.
Some of the pages are well optimised and have the technical SEO elements in place where others are lacking some of the basics. There is definite room for improvement here and some low hanging fruit to get started fairly easily.
How your customers experience your website is key to your digital success. Is it easy to use? Does it prompt the customer to take action? Can the customer find what they are looking for?
On desktop the site loads relatively quickly however it struggles on Mobile devices and failed Google’s mobile usability test. Notable issues were the text being too small to read and clickable elements being too close together.
There are a number of factors and ways to analyse how users are engaging and
interacting with your site. Below are some data points to examine in our user
Unfortunately, there isn’t a clear answer on what is a good bounce rate. There are many factors and it will vary depending on the type of site/product. That being said a bounce rate between 60% – 80% is solid and between 30%-40% is great.
Our bounce rate of 57% is excellent and shows us that most users are delving deeper into the site content.
Average Time Spent On Site
The longer users stay on your site, the more chances you get to convert them. Like bounce rate, average time spent on site is relative. If the average time spent on site is less 1 minute, then it’s definitely something we would want to look into.
Our average session duration is 02:31 – which is very good. This means that most users are exploring your site content further.
Identifying what pages users leave from the most is the first step to fixing the issue. Pages with a 80% or higher exit rate % are worth investigating. Pages with the most traffic will always have a higher exit rate.
Our highest page of consequence exit rate % is 60% which is /bali/admissions/school-fees which is understandable considering the intent of the user is to see fees and then decide whether they wish to stay or leave the site.
The homepage for both the main and bali site both have exit rate % below 50% which is excellent for most sites.
- Does this page solve a problem or answer a question to the fullest extent?
- Are there still some questions left unanswered?
- How is the readability of the content?
- Are there too many big blocks of text?
- Too little images?
- Broken images?
- Does the page load slowly?
- Are there distracting elements such as advertisements that would send a user
off your site?
- Are you setting external links to “open in a new window” (if not, you should)?
It is clear that greenschool.org and greechschool.org/bali are two separate WordPress installs. The latter needing more work with site speed and usability.
A second pass definitely needs to be made regarding mobile/responsive.
We could definitely see improvements across the board if we optimize assets and fix glaring UX issues.
In this section we identify strengths and weaknesses in your link profile.
- Link Relevancy
- Link Authority
- Link Diversity
- Link Targeting – homepage vs deep links
- Anchor Text Diversification
- Total Referring Domains – The more unique referring domains a site has linkingto it, the better.
Link profiles is still one of the major ranking factors for Google – from the above we can see some excellent backlinks from high authority domains which is a big factor in the SERPs. The goal here would be to continue cultivating these backlinks.
Knowing who your competitors are and how they are reaching their (and your) potential customers can help highlight areas to improve or opportunities to take advantage of.

- Research, discuss and select target keywords and keyword sets for each page
- Talk about a content creation strategy
- Update the content for each page accordingly
- Technical SEO updates to page templates. (Title Tags, Meta Descriptions etc.)
- UX updates for both mobile and desktop
