How HubSpot Broke a Year-Long Traffic Plateau by Upending the Editorial Strategy1 min read
On this bonus episode of the show, we bring you the keynote that Meghan Keaney Anderson, VP Marketing at HubSpot, gave at last year’s SaaStock on Tour in New York. Meghan goes in great detail on the year-long traffic plateau HubSpot’s blog went through in 2017 and how after the initial heart palpitations, the team upended the editorial strategy and are stronger than ever today.
A creative writing major, Meghan joined HubSpot in 2011 when the growth graph of the blog looked like any content marketers dream – a hockey stick. That lasted for a few years until in 2017 it hit a plateau. In the first few months, Meghan and the team ascribed it to seasonality but as months went by with no changes they began to worry. As theywould find out, many other companies were reporting similar results, and named that year, the great flattening of 2017. The journey to get out of the plateau began.
Listen on to hear:
- Why were all companies seeing the plateau at that time?
- What was the first thing HubSpot did to accommodate to this new reality
- How did HubSpot optimize content to fit Google’s new algorithms
To fully enjoy this podcast you can follow Meghan’s deck as you are listening. From June 4th to the 6th, we will be back in New York to run a bigger and better SaaStock East Coast conference featuring incredibly successful SaaS founders and executives such as Meghan, as well as key investors from the region.
