- In less than 9 months of work, non branded organic traffic to 10 of the 11 core areas increased by an average of 95%
Banham has been a market-leader in the security industry since 1926, specialising in securing domestic and commercial properties.
Go Up worked with Banham to improve organic traffic to the site, with particular focus on non-branded traffic to key services pages.
Start date: April 2016 – present
Work on the Banham site started with a technical audit which informed subsequent optimisation work, carried out over a number of months.
In addition to technical and structural changes as well as some basic UX improvements to the site, our team revised topic focus on key services pages to help improve organic visibility for non-branded queries.
Link building began immediately with the focus of improving the domain’s authority.
At the time of writing, the campaign is still in its early days. However preliminary results have been fantastic.
Banham has identified 11 services that amount to their core areas of business. In less than 9-months of work, non branded organic traffic to 10 of these 11 core areas increased by an average of 95%, resulting in a noticeable increase in enquiries for the client.
In the period immediately following the implementation of our initial optimisation work, the site began to display substantial positive year-on-year (YOY) growth in organic traffic for the first time in 12 months.
Whilst the site had been experiencing negative or very low YOY growth for the year before we started working with Banham, two months after we implemented the first optimisation, YOY organic traffic reached reached 32%.
Whilst this fluctuated over the next months, average YOY growth in the 6 months following the two-month mark since starting their SEO campaign with us was 9.77%.
By comparison, average YOY growth in organic traffic over the 6 months preceding our campaign was -10.49%.
During the campaign the Banham website recorded the following notable keyword gains:
