A case study on how Giant Marketers helps Speedy Splash to get no 1 ranking and increase 208% organic traffic.
Another client of ours is a car wash company located in Fayetteville, AR. They have been providing their services since 2017. Usually,Speedy Splash serves deluxe, premium, and ultimate wash services to their customers.
Generally, they acquired maximum clients from their website visitors. Everything was going well with this site; they had a good ranking and great traffic. But suddenly, a few months ago, they began to notice a drop-down in their site’s traffic and rankings. Also, the bounce rates were increasing, and keywords were falling off. Which implied this site was facing some issues.
Speedy Splash knows that the car wash business is really competitive and that losing a single opportunity can harm the site. Therefore, speedy splash chose us to find out the issues and implement our best strategy. So, let’s see how we were able to recover this website and turn its traffic back.
As always, we audit the whole site manually to find out the issues. After the Google core algorithm update, we found that this site’s ranking was significantly affected. So, here were the main issues that we have identified-
- Pages with a lot of thin and content without proper optimization.
- Lack of quality backlinks.
- This site’s loading speed was very poor.
- Not optimized for mobile users.
In the beginning, this website had a minimal number of competitors; that’s why they can rank well even with thin content. As years passed, more competitors came with quality and properly optimized content. So, Google started to rank its competitors in the top, and Speedy splash faced a fall down in the SERPs with its thin content.
This site badly needed quality links to compete in organic search results. For link, building quality matters most over quantity. This is where Speedy splash made the biggest mistake. This site used a huge quantity of backlinks, but the maximum was not worthy. That’s why Google took manual action, and its page rank was reduced.
The last issue of Speedy Splash did not have an optimized mobile-friendly website. For local services, maximum clients use their mobile phones to find car wash services.
So having a mobile-friendly website is the biggest opportunity to reach new traffic and generate leads. Though speedy splash’s website was designed considering the mobile users, it wasn’t optimized accurately. Therefore, it negatively impacts the UX of this site.
When speedy splash came to us, some of their pages were badly affected by Google’s manual action. Thus, it’s ranking, traffic, and conversion rates were greatly affected. So, we took that challenge to get back the ranking position, traffic, and leads to our client. Here’s what SEO tactics we implemented for the speedy splash.
1. Improving Existing Page Rankings and Traffic
The first thing that we did to solve the ranking issue was improving the existing page’s traffic. To do this, we simply started looking for the keywords that this site was ranking for before.
In this way, we found some keywords with low difficulties and some which are not worthy. Also, we found the pages which are on the verge of ranking and can easily be improved. After that, we focused on the keywords that this site’s competitors were targeting and focused on building content on them.
After founding the keywords, we started improvising the existing content with low-difficulty keywords and removing all the unworthy keywords. However, we added some more keywords with higher search volume and then optimized the content to quickly increase the traffic.
2. Established New Content Structure
Speedy splash’s service page wasn’t well-optimized and also consisted of very poor content structure. So, what we did was-
- Created separate service pages with proper content providing all necessary elements.
- We have created a separate Location page mentioning all the locations they provide services, including contact info and maps.
- Used CTA to ensure accuracy and make the content meaningful to the audiences.
- Optimized content as per Google’s requirement following NLP and EAT.
3. Perform Link Building outreach
You already know it’s essential for SEO to get backlinks with high quality by following Google’s rules. Backlinks act as a vote of confidence for your site, which search engines see as evidence that your content is valuable. This is where a speedy splash fell behind. So, here’s how we helped this site to overcome this issue.
- At first, we disavowed the links that were spammy and low-quality.
- Created some outstanding content and reached out to a relevant authority website with high DA for guest posting.
- Also, we did competitor research for pages that were already ranked for relevant keywords. Then analyzed their backlinks and contacted the webmaster for backlinks.
4. Focused on Improving the Core Web Vital Metrics
This site can’t stand out well on the LCP and FID. So, we started working on speed optimization all these one by one to get the perfect score.
Largest Contentful Paint (LCP): It marks how quickly an entire content of a page is visible to the visitors. As speedy splash had slow page speed so, the content took time to load. As a result, the site visitors had to wait until the content loaded, which made them frustrated and led them to leave the page.
The perfect score for LCP is 2.5 seconds. So, we focused on ensuring speedy splash’s page speed within 2.5 seconds. And, here are the SEO practices that we followed to ensure the perfect LCP score.
- Optimized the critical rendering path,
First Input Delay (FID): FID indicates the time a web page takes when users click on something. In that sense, it is also related to page speed, but here it measures the reaction time of a page when visitors click on something.
With the speedy splash when visitors clicked to see the pass details, pass flyer, or contact us page they took a huge time to load and show the results. It is also one of the reasons for the speedy splash’s increasing bounce rate. Just like LCP, FID also has a scoring guideline and the perfect score is 100 ms. So, let’s see the improvements that we made to reach this score.
- Removed the useless third-party scripts.
5. Optimized the Site for Mobile Users
For local businesses, having a mobile-friendly and SEO-Friendly website is a must. In the case of Speedy splash, it had some missing SEO factors. So, we moved to optimize speedy splash’s website to make it more user-friendly for mobile users.
- We scaled the images with proper size and alt tags for mobile users.
- Ensure appropriate text size for any size device.
- Make sure that the CTA is visible.
- Keep the navigation menu easy to find.
- Used pop-ups sparingly only where they make sense.
- Lastly, optimize the loading speed of this site’s mobile version.
Once done the auditing and implementing all the SEO strategies we keep monitoring the site to see the development or growth. After months of hard work, we have successfully made the most of the keywords bumped on no 1 page of SERPs.
