StudyLink.com has changed.
We are proud to announce that this month we have made two improvements to the site:
Searching on StudyLink.com has been changed and now lists courses individually instead of being grouped by institution. Furthermore the search results are ordered by relevancy rather than the previous rudimentary alphabetical order. This has been changed to provide the best search results for the students based on long-tail keywords (which make up the majority of searches on the site).
Course search results now provide click-through opportunities for students to go directly to the course pages on your domain rather than the central institution pages, so conversion of the visitors will improve. These links can be set for individual courses using our Editor system, if you have any queries or would like assistance with this please let us know.
In the last year we have seen mobile and tablet traffic increase by 41% and 65% respectively. This exciting trend presented the opportunity for us to enhance the mobile/tablet user experience on the site.
We have launched a new responsive site design so the site now automatically resizes depending on the device you are using, so if you visit StudyLink.com from your mobile, tablet and desktop you will see a version of the site tailored to your resolution and load speed. This is best practice for SEO performance in search engines and should entail further increases in organic traffic to the site, and in turn, your content.
This is only the start!
This year will mark the most intensive period of development for the StudyLink sites in their history and these developments only mark the start of our plans for the sites. In the next month we will be launching new study destination directories for popular countries in Europe and also improving the search on the UK postgraduate site, StudyLink.co.uk.
We will continue to keep you up to date throughout the year in our monthly newsletters but if you would like to discuss any element of our development please contact any member of the DEM team.
