How We Boosted Organic Traffic to a Landscape Materials Company’s Site

The Site’s Structure

Based on the analysis of competitors and market features in this industry, we have developed a website structure that fully covers all areas of the company's activities, taking into account the share of each type of product in the sales structure. We kept things simple so that the site is easy to navigate. 

The new site structure is an improvement on the old one and it also meets the following requirements of Google:

  • The site has a logical hierarchy
  • The internal link weight is optimally distributed across the pages of the site 
  • The nesting depth of the pages is no more than 3 for fast indexing of pages
  • The content of the site covers a larger number of user requests

Content strategy

The next important step of this project is developing a content strategy based on the keyword research. When all processes are done right — when content strategy is combined with other important SEO steps (including link building) — keyword research helps to produce a repeatable content process that consistently earns traffic over time. The graph shows that organic traffic on the project is always growing.

How did we achieve such a result?

Analyze the target audience

First of all, we identified the target audience of the site: local landscapers, hardscapers, masons, home builders, general contractors, landscape architects, and designers (75-350K households) so that the content meets the needs of these users in terms of our offerings. Creating attractive content is about providing real product value to real people, not just sending hints to our robot friends on Google to promote the site. Our task is not to gain the interest of search engines but real buyers.

Check the demand

Secondly, our experts have determined the demand for construction and landscape materials in the client’s location. Research results have shown that the demand for garden mulch, landscape stones and other goods of Allied Landscape Supply is high, but still depends on the season.

Competitor analysis

We conducted a niche analysis, which showed that the client’s industry is quite competitive. Many companies have been on the market for more than 10 years and have optimized websites. Our research also showed that the main competitors of the company include large online stores.

We took all these factors into account when creating the keyword map, which is the basis of SEO success. We have implemented keywords about landscape supply, paver cleaner, and paver sealer on every page of the site to meet users’ expectations for requests in search engines and get to the TOP of SERPs. To do this, we created more than 30 pages of new content. 

The client's website now ranks for 3,608 keywords, which is 2,368 more compared to the beginning of the SEO campaign (a 190% increase!).

At the TOP 10, the site ranks for 428 keywords, which is 4 times more (a 341% increase) compared to the beginning of the SEO campaign.

To attract an additional audience and expand the “entry points” to the site, we created a blog and started writing interesting articles about topsoil, kennedy concrete, landscape boulders, and many other types of landscape materials. Our articles do not lose their relevance, bring stable traffic to the site, and have a high CTR.
