Key Challenges

While the home improvement industry being a highly competitive niche, the client recognizes the potential growth opportunities for their business by addressing the following challenges:

Recover from Their Google Penalty

Many ecommerce businesses are quick to “wing” their way to improving their online rankings, resulting in penalties from Google. The client’s website was affected by the Penguin update, which had a significant impact on their rankings. 

Get Targeted Traffic

Our initial website audit shows the client is not ranking for targeted keywords that drive visitors who are likely to transact with their business.

Getting to the Root of the Problem

The first thing our team did was to identify the causes of the website’s Google penalty and implement remedies to regain its rankings at the next algorithm update. 

With a technical audit, we analyzed the on-page and off-page performance of the website. We reviewed the website’s content and checked its quality and relevance to their audience, target keywords, and overall brand. 

Fixing website issues was also a top priority. We dedicated web development hours to fix minor issues on the website, such as slow site speed.

Applying the best practices to elevate their client’s online performance, we recommended our SEO service to build the basics for their website. This includes the following:


Building the Basics

  • Target customer analysis and buyer persona creation: To determine the best keywords and write content for the website, we developed a buyer persona profile for the business.  
  • Keyword research: Based on their ideal customer profiles, we identified their target keywords and tracked them into the dashboard. This enabled us to monitor ranking movement for targeted search terms. 
  • Website Optimization: We proceeded to optimize relevant pages and content. Using  the target keywords, we start linking contextually related pages with one another. 
  • Link Building: Our team reached out to high domain authority online publications and blogs to develop articles that produce backlinks for the website.
