People are winning at programmatic SEO!

But if you are still trying to decide whether programmatic SEO is the strategy for you, this blog post might just be for you. In the post, I collected several examples of people building their pSEO sites and sharing their wins publicly.

In this post, I will only mention a few ones but at the end of the post, you will be able to get the whole list of such people/projects.

Let’s get to it…

Programmatic SEO wins

Along with peoples’ wins, I will also share their social media and/or the website so that you can monitor their progress by yourself.


Lukas Hermann shares on Twitter that he discovered that people search for {##} minutes timer on Google, and even though Google directly shows a timer in the SERP, he decided to programmatically create pages targeting the following keywords:

Some people asked: What is programmatic SEO?

So here's a step-by-step guide on how to "break the matrix" with the example of Stagetimer.

1. Choose a Keyword

Mine is a timer. So I chose people searching for "30 minute timer" or "1h timer"

As a result, StageTimer started getting more clicks from Google (as you see in the tweet above). The traffic went down a bit after that but it seems to be catching up again.

Lukas explains his strategy in this blog post. He suggests paying extra attention when designing the page template(s) and page URL(s) and explains how to add internal links properly.

There’s definitely a lot to learn from here.

2. Sai Krishna’s pSEO project

Sai Krishna shared on Twitter that his programmatic SEO experiment website reached 165,000+ pageviews per month. He hasn’t shared the domain name but clarified that it was a new domain and he was able to get the result in just 3 months.

Sounds too good to be true, right? But it’s totally possible with programmatic SEO, if done right.

Sai explains that the most important part of programmatic SEO is targeting the right keywords and doing proper internal linking. He also suggests building a fast-loading website that passes all the Core Web Vitals scores.

3. The Hive Index

Fed’s project The Hive Index reached more than 400 clicks per day from Google, and he was able to achieve this in just one year.

When asked how he did it, he explained choosing keywords that are long-tail and creating high-quality content that correctly satisfies the search intent. And then he also recommends putting extra attention on internal linking.

In this tweet, he explains everything in a detailed manner — from data sources, page templates, and URL patterns to page length, internal linking, and website speed.

As it was a simple habit tracker app, he started targeting keywords like best habit tracker apps for {device} and that made all the difference. Even though the domain was completely new, he started getting more and more impressions by each day.

According to Preetam, good keyword research is the most important part of programmatic SEO. If you can understand what your potential customers are searching for, you can draw them to your website.
