Search Engine Optimisation Case Study
Keywords on Page One
Impressions on Google
A sole proprietor in the coaching space had a nicely designed website but it wasn’t functioning as a business tool. It had no presence on Google and we identified that an SEO-informed redesigns could provide some visibility and earn some leads.
We provided a one-off website design and development build in December 2021, informed by keyword research and a targeted site architecture with optimised content. We also performed two months of post-launch optimisation with backlink acquisition.
We simply turned a website into a business tool for earning traffic and leads. Although this was a one-off project, we still keep track of the results and its performance is going from strength to strength with 20 keywords on page 1, including a top position for a primary target.

Due to a comprehesive site architecture, and a business owner that does a very good job of producing informational articles, this keyword trend will continue to rise, even without continued dedicated SEO efforts.
Visibility on Google Source: Google Search Console
This website had been in existence for years before we conducted our work. SEO can be the difference between a website that exists and a website that exists as a business tool. To see this website earning 16k+ views on Google compared to many years of zero visibility is incredibly satisfying.
Organic Traffic Source: Google Analytics
100+ organic visits per month for a sole proprietor in a niche industry is an excellent start to a website’s journey in SEO. We finished our one-off project in March 2022 and the results continue to increase. Sometimes, websites just need a strategic kick-start to get going.
If traffic from Google can help grow your business, then SEO can and should have input into the design, layout, content, and architecture of a website. This needs blending with other important considerations: the wishes of the owner or brand; its positioning; the aesthetics and imagery etc, and the result can be a website that pleases all stakeholders.
Any website in any industry can generate results with this approach, just like this sole proprietor in a small niche industry who will continue to reap the rewards of an SEO-informed site design and build.
