The major winners and losses in the UK Pet Industry

The pet industry has done anything but roll over in 2022. In total, the UK Pet Industry grew in visibility by a significant 18% year-on-year from 2021 to 2022. Visibility is all about how easily your brand can be found online.

Despite the impressive average growth, amongst the winners, there were also some losses. The Spruce Pets, for example, saw a massive 1014% jump in visibility. Chewy also saw a similarly big jump, seeing an increase in visibility of 309%. Whilst on average there was an increase in industry visibility, some brands have seen some fur-ocious growth.

On the other side of the coin, there have also been some visibility faux paws. The massive brand Purina dropped 50% and The Pet Express dropped 42%. Despite notable visibility rises, some brands have had a rough year.

  6. omlet.co.uk
  7. jollyes.co.uk
  8. chewy.com

Cats off to these Pet industry brands. They are the top 5 brands seeing the biggest jump in absolute visibility score:

  1. The Spruce Pets
  2. Pets at Home
  3. Chewy
  4. Jollyes
  5. Petco

Whilst there has been an 18% average in Pet Industry visibility growth, these are the highest performers. You can look to emulate their success by understanding their search engine strategies and working out how you can implement them.

  1. purina.com
  2. thepetexpress.co.uk
  3. purina.co.uk
  4. hillspet.co.uk
  5. viovet.co.uk

These brands have seen the biggest hits to their visibility scores. They may have been hit hard by Google algorithm changes or require new strategies. Look to learn from their mistakes.

Which Pet brands have the best authority?

Website authority may be considered the strength or reputation of a website. Put simply the greater the authority (reputation and strength) the more likely that you will appear in the search results for keywords. Google aims to provide the best result for a user and search query, the stronger your website’s authority the more likely you are judged by Google to provide beneficial results. Resultingly, you will be rewarded with higher positions on the results pages. The authority is calculated by looking into a website’s popularity, size, age, and link-building.

These are the top 5 Pet Industry sites for domain authority:

  1. thesprucepets.com
  2. petco.com
  3. chewy.com
  4. purina.com
  5. petsathome.com

Whilst authority and visibility aren’t the same, they are heavily correlated hence why there are similar results. Visibility concerns your online presence, but authority concerns the strength of that presence. If you have good authority but no visibility, you could be sitting on a sleeping giant. The golden formula is to have both high authority and high visibility.

Page Speed across the Pet Industry?

Whilst a technical definition of page speed exists, in simple terms, it is the length of time it takes to display the page’s content. This includes everything on the page from text, images, and videos along with all the code necessary to power it.

Page speed matters because users demand it. Research by Google noted that the chances of a bounce rate jumped 32% when page load time increased from one to three seconds. Accounting for this, in 2010, Google announced that page speed would be included as a ranking factor and Google has doubled down on page speed’s importance with its 2017 Mobile-First update and introduction of Core Web Vitals in 2020.

As previously noted, Google aims to benefit the user and will, therefore, reward sites that deliver the best result and experience – page speed being a crucial element of that experience.

The whippets of the Pet Industry landscape with the fastest page speed scores are:

  1. thesprucepets.com
  2. pet-supermarket.co.uk
  3. prodograw.com
  4. viovet.co.uk
  5. iams.com

Our expert team of Technical SEO specialists along with UX professionals can help cut the excess fat off your site and improve its vitals so that it’s running like Bolt.
