When the website optimization plan and blogging began, their website was ranking for 68 keywords, none of which were on the first two pages, and they were getting no leads from organic traffic.
We performed the technical SEO updates and content updates listed above over the course of three months. Six weeks in, when we were about halfway through the plan, their website was ranking for 333 keywords, ten of which were on the first two pages, and two of which were on the first page. Their estimated organic monthly search potential was 410 visits and organic website traffic did increase. They also started to capture organic leads from their lead conversion offers.
Once the updates were complete, the number of ranking keywords and consequently their organic ranking potential had continued to increase, as did their organic search traffic and their number of captured leads.
The targeted SEO optimization plan ran from April through June. From the total leads generated organically since, the company has completed eight on-site estimates and has closed is primed to close almost $60,000 in remodeling revenue from 3 months of targeted technical SEO improvements.
SEO on its own can help, but it will be nowhere near as effective than if combined with targeted content development, promotion, and other components of a fully formed inbound marketing strategy.
