Securing high-quality coverage in publications which are read and respected by your customers.
Unlike many other digital marketing agencies, we focus exclusively on SEO. It’s the one channel that outperforms all others in delivering a return on investment.
By being accountable to SEO performance, and working to North Star metrics, Blue Array is uniquely placed to consult and secure the type of coverage and links that deliver impact.
Working with some of the fastest growing companies in Europe, we’ve developed an understanding of the factors that Google values when ranking websites. We apply the same strict methodology when carrying out our Content Marketing and Digital PR.
To ensure we deliver excellence to our clients we’ve created tenets that include:
- An absolute veto on any paid links or black hat techniques
- Total alignment with your brand – ensuring content we share emulates the tone and voice customers have come to trust
- An end to end managed process so you don’t have to take on additional responsibility
- Full accountability for results. If high-quality links we build to your site every month fail to correlate with movement to the key performance metric, we’ll identify the reason, communicate with you, and iterate the process to ensure success

How Digital PR & SEO delivered Floom 129% YoY growth
Industry & Target Location
Flower Delivery, London, Edinburgh, New York & LA
Organic Uplift (The Results)
129% Organic YoY Growth
By plugging Floom into opportunities from UK journalists writing industry relevant articles (using the Blue Array PR tool, PressPull) we were able to earn exposure and links from high-quality, authoritative websites that supplemented our on-page SEO strategy.
Links were all naturally acquired: Anchor text was often branded or a naked URL pointed to the homepage, and articles in which we placed links all high-quality, human-curated material.
Links were generated naturally throughout the course of the year without a pattern in the rate of their acquisition.
These two points are important in ensuring we are completely safe from both manual penalties as well as algorithmic penalties (via Penguin) both now, as well as for the future
The placements we achieved were from well-read, high-quality sources, including UK publishers such as The Telegraph
Placement in eg. The Telegraph is powerful at generating brand awareness as well as driving direct website traffic.
We also gained 17 placements with backlinks which helped increase organic visibility and traffic to the website. We were featured in authoritative publications such as SmallBusiness.co.uk
All PR was naturally acquired over the course of 12 months via industry commentary or quotes. No paid links. Ever.
We left anchor text entirely to the journalists’ discretion. The rate and pattern of acquisition occurred evenly across the year.
Examples of other domains in which we secured a link placement include:
Over 12 months Blue Array supplemented the organic strategy of Floom, helping them to achieve 129% organic YoY growth (2018 over 2017) and break into highly competitive foreign markets, including New York and Los Angeles.
This strategy is just one component of Blue Array’s complete Digital PR offering (priced at £3,400 +VAT per month). Do you want proven sustainable SEO growth? Find out how Blue Array can help you.
