Local SEO Franchise Case Study
This client came on board with A1 SEO in September 2021. The firm already had a website, but the website was not performing well and strong rankings hand never materialised after working with multiple SEO consultants. This is a franchise website with locations across the UK with strong growth ambitions.
We fully restructured the website’s architecture. The site had been launched before the client started franchising out. What the client does varies slightly area to area. We created a structure that compliments their geographic offering.
Next content up, we published content that had been optimized through SurferSEO for each location group.
Google My Business
The naming conventions for of the locations were inconsistent. Tons of NAP inconsistencies. We wrote the processes for the business to create new GMB properties in the areas they are targeting and helped with the heavy lifting behind this for over 90 locations.
Full citations audit and clean up for each location. We’re now slowly pushing through new citations for the client (with unique descriptions on each submissions of course).
A lot of cookie-cutter 404s, internal links, 301s etc. We implemented Nitropack. A very aggressive cache, but the site sits on a horrendous shared server. We had to literally deploy most aggressive solution possible without being able to upgrade the server. Nitropack isn’t always ideal’ it can break sites, but we fully tested and deployed it here. Bots were actually being limited due to the speed of the site previously. Crazy in 2022. A short-term fix to a bigger problem.
Load a small nice to haves and visuals fixes here and there. UX wasn’t great alongside overall technical integrity.
Things started to pick up around month 5, where we saw # of keywords on page 1 grow by a silly number (663 vs 17 prior to A1 SEO getting stuck into the site) on a site that’s been around for over 4 years without ever seriously ranking.
Increase in daily clicks (28 vs 268)
Keywords on page 1 (vs 3 prior to engagement)
Postions (vs 0 prior to engagement)
Strong local expsoure in over
locations across the UK
The client has been fantastic, especially around the logistics involved in managing multiple GMBs. But for the most part, they’ve just let us get on what we do best.
