SEO: Better Than Ramen’s #1 Source of Traffic

Challenge: I wanted to get more eyes on Better Than Ramen, my food blog, without spending money on advertising or hours promoting posts on social media.

Solution: I went through Better Than Ramen’s archives and implemented search engine optimization best practices to the existing posts and pages.

"Better Than Ramen is a growing online presence in the food world. Working with Ana, its chief architect, was a great experience. She is professional, has great attention to detail and you can tell that she really loves food, cooking and writing about both. She proved to be an excellent communicator and writer and we look forward to working with her again!"

- David Beaudreau, Founder, Ketchung!, for whom I created a sponsored blog post
