Local seo case study for Electrical business

Project Overview

This case study focuses on a local business based in Seattle that provides electrical services. They wanted to increase visitors to their website and reach more customers. 

My approach was to understand their business, analyze their target audience, assess their online presence, and evaluate their current SEO performance with an SEO audit. Then, I developed and implemented a local SEO strategy.

The Main Challenges They Faced

  • Outdated, poor-quality website.
  • Lack of quality content.
  • Missing Google Business Profile (the heart of local business).
  • Indexing issues: some service pages were not indexed on Google.
  • Numerous technical problems on the website.
  • Weak backlinks profile and low online activity.
  • Low social media activity.
