Our Approach

Website Review

Premium Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning’s website was created in-house on a do-it-yourself platform. The content of the website was strong, with great images, but we found that it was missing meta tags, title tags, as well as other search engine optimization components. This led us to create a new website design that was user-centric with a focus on solving the visitors’ problem. The website used the company’s colour scheme and improved mobile responsiveness and “sharability.”

Keyword Research

Digital Shift also reviewed the content and images to ensure that the keywords that mattered were optimized. We conducted a keyword research analysis and looked at local search frequency and competitiveness in Edmonton, Alberta. We compared this data to previous SEO case study examples which allowed us to focus our content writing on keywords that prospective customers were searching most frequently.

Content Review

Premium Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning’s website had great content, but there were a few areas that needed to be enhanced. Our team decided to create an individual service page for each of Premium Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning’s services to provide additional details and information. This also allowed us to better optimize each service page.

Schema Mark Up

Digital Shift added business information to help search engines better understand the company website (name, business hours, location, etc). This markup is very important to search engines, including Google. It allows us to submit a site map to search engines to help them better understand what’s on the page and how it should be showcased to the searcher. Have you ever Googled a specific business’ hours and had the hours pop up right in your search without clicking on the site’s link? Google knew to do that thanks to schema mark up.

Local SEO Citation Building

After completing an SEO audit we found that there was room for improvement. Digital Shift picked top directories in addition to niche and local directories to submit Premium Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning’s information to. The new business directory listings allowed new audiences to find the company as well as increase the business’ online authority.

AdWords Training

Digital Shift helped with PPC Set-up and training, campaign management, and landing page creation to increase conversion rates. Previously, the PPC campaign was sending users to the home page, which wasn’t the most effective use of Pay-Per-Click dollars. By showing Premium Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning how to manage keywords, landing pages, and other campaign elements, we were able to create a better managed and easily maintainable AdWords account.
