How I Scaled an Edtech blog from 5K to 51K Clicks/day Organic Traffic in 11 Months [Case Study]

My friend referred me to this company, connected me to the Co-founder. Referrals are gold mine. Create your network.

As India was locked down in March 2020, there was a surge of traffic on Educational website and the company was upbeat about that and wanted to capture more traffic.
